Twitter was up in arms on Thursday evening, after President Biden announced a sweeping set of new regulations regarding COVID-19 vaccines in the workplace.
The Commander in Chief has been having a heck of a time trying to break though a vaccine reluctance wall, behind which about 30% of the nation resides. These are the folks who’ve chosen to remain unvaccinated, and who want no part of being told what to do by their government…especially when it comes to what they’re putting into their bodies.
And when Biden announced his widespread vaccine mandates, this extremely vocal majority got to chirping.
President Joe Biden is announcing Thursday that all employers with more than 100 workers will be forced to require coronavirus vaccinations or test employees weekly.
The mandate will be announced Thursday afternoon and is expected to affect as many as 100 million Americans.
The expansive rules mandate that all employers with more than 100 workers require them to be vaccinated or test for the virus weekly, affecting about 80 million Americans. And the roughly 17 million workers at health facilities that receive federal Medicare or Medicaid also will have to be fully vaccinated.
Biden will have OSHA make a rule requiring employees of companies to be tested. Companies will have to pay for the testing, but they can pass the cost on to employees.
Biden is also signing an executive order to require vaccination for employees of the executive branch and contractors who do business with the federal government — with no option to test instead. That covers several million more workers.
Several different anti-mandate hashtags were trending on Twitter after the announcement, and users were livid.
Biden’s vaccine mandate is an assault on private businesses.
I issued an Executive Order protecting Texans’ right to choose whether they get the COVID vaccine & added it to the special session agenda.
Texas is already working to halt this power grab.https://t.co/TwoQMhDxoM
