The Hill and the LEK Reports
(Washington D.C) The Senate has voted on Bidens business vaccine mandate on a vote to 52-48 which means that Bidens vaccine mandate has been restricted by the Republican Senate for business. But the vote to turn in law needs the House to pass: which is led by the Democratic majority.
The rule, published through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), orders businesses with at least 100 employees to require their workers to get vaccinated or undergo regular testing by Jan. 4.
But Republicans believe that it constitutes federal government overreach and violates American workers’ civil liberties.
Sen. Mike Braun (R-Ind.), who spearheaded the GOP resolution, said that Americans should get vaccinated “unless they have a good reason,” but called the vaccine requirement an “ultimatum” that has “mainstream America scared.” “That is the heavy hand of government, that is overreach and that is my phone started ringing off the hook,” he said. “I hope that members in the House, Democrats in places, check with your constituents.”
Even if Congress passes a law which allows vaccine mandates or forces them as it is written “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” from the Constitution meaning that even if Congress passes another sperate law that allows mandates it might not be in reality an actual law that abides by the highest law of the land. But in this case the Republicans fighting a vaccine mandate by the legislator might be a hard fight to fight. If they fail in the legislator fighting mandates on the courts is very unreliable as the Supreme court even with a majority republican does not believe in those republican values.
