The Biden administration’s federal vaccine mandate is a mess, to put it lightly, facing all manner of legal and ethical challenges from coast to coast – including on Capitol Hill.
The mandate itself has long been considered an affront to bodily autonomy and the general ethos of freedom that our nation was founded upon. Yet still, the Democratic side of the aisle continues to push for the enforcement of this federal overreach in ever-more devious ways.
This hasn’t gone over well with the Freedom Caucus, and their latest pushback includes a demand that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi cannot ignore.
The House Freedom Caucus is calling on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to refuse to fund the executive branch over President Biden’s vaccine mandate.
“President Biden and administration officials on his behalf have issued multiple executive orders and directives mandating COVID-19 vaccinations under threat of retribution that will cause the loss of livelihoods and endanger Americans,” the caucus said in a letter obtained by Fox News Tuesday.
The letter comes after a federal appeals court reaffirmed its stay on the workplace vaccine mandate, ordering the U.S. Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration to “take no steps to implement or enforce the Mandate until further court order.”Advertisement - story continues below
“Federal vaccine mandates will only further divide America and harm our national security. For example, thousands of men and women in uniform are thus far choosing not to meet the recent COVID-19 vaccination requirements imposed by DoD. It is absurd to threaten to discharge — honorably or dishonorably — anyone in our military for making that choice,” the letter said.
The mandate itself has faced a number of heavy duty legal setbacks, with federal judges issuing restraining orders against it on account of its potentially unconstitutional ramifications.
