House Republican Lauren Boebert: “All 9 million federal employees” should consult their doctors & “make a personal, informed decision about taking the vaccine”.
On Thursday, President Joe Biden announced compulsory vaccination against COVID-19 for all employees of the US federal government “to promote the health and safety of the federal workforce and the efficiency of the civil service”.
Congressional Republicans and state governors have reacted angrily to President Joe Biden’s plan to require coronavirus vaccination for all federal workers, accusing POTUS of overstepping his authority.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers, the senior Republican on the House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee that oversees health policy, claimed that Biden “continues to undermine confidence in safe and effective vaccines” by “using fear, control, and mandates”.
Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has, meanwhile, signalled RNC’s readiness to bring Biden to justice over his plan on compulsory vaccination.
Biden’s Vaccination Plan
When asked a federal vaccine mandate at a press conference in December 2020, Biden said, “I don’t think it should be mandatory, I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory, but I would do everything in my power…as president of the United States to convince people to do the right thing”.
