Joe Biden’s administration has finally unveiled the details of the vaccine mandate on American employers, which forces employees of companies with 100 workers or more to be vaccinated or risk losing their jobs. The mandate imposes stiff fines on companies for non-compliance of $13,653 per violation up to $136,532.
Kelly Tshibaka, Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in Alaska, today issued the following statement:
“In this country, government derives its power from the consent of the governed. We don’t have kings, but you would never know it from the amount of power Joe Biden assumes for himself! This mandate is unconstitutional and un-American. No president has the authority to order businesses to require their employees to be vaccinated. And inexplicably, Biden’s order fails to recognize that millions of people have natural immunity because they’ve already recovered from COVID-19, which scientific studies tell us is the same or better than the protection provided by the vaccine. People should get the COVID shot if they choose to do so, not because the government forces a needle into their arm.
“The mandate is an assault on freedom and patient rights, and it will force people to either submit or risk losing their jobs. This is yet another job-killing and business-busting policy from Joe Biden, who has already targeted Alaska’s resource economy for destruction. This is exactly the sort of government overreach we have come to expect from the regime enabled by Sen. Lisa Murkowski.”
