Ron DeSantis celebrated a huge victory that made Democrats seethe with rage
Joe Biden’s Presidency just absorbed another body blow.
The latest defeat came from Republicans fighting back at the state level.
And Ron DeSantis celebrated a huge victory that made Democrats seethe with rage.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a series of bills designed to cripple Joe Biden’s federal vaccine workplace mandate.
The bills DeSantis signed created numerous exemptions businesses would have to comply with and banned schools from imposing vaccine or mask mandates.
NBC News reports:
The bill targeting President Joe Biden’s vaccination requirements for private employers, which would allow certain exemptions for medical and religious reasons, would impose fines on businesses with mandates that don’t comply with coming state guidelines. The Associated Press reported that the state Health Department, led by Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo, a Covid vaccination critic, will determine what qualifies as an exemption after the legislation is signed into law.
The bill would also bar schools from requiring students to be vaccinated or to wear masks. The Food and Drug Administration authorized Pfizer-BioNTech’s lower-dose Covid vaccine for children ages 5 to 11 late last month.
The three other measures would move the state away from Occupational Safety and Health Administration oversight, shield Covid-related complaints from the public eye and remove state health officials’ authority to order vaccinations during public health emergencies.
Joe Biden sought this fight with Florida and Governor DeSantis.
Biden announced the vaccine mandate in September and criticized DeSantis by name accusing DeSantis of wanting to kill children by not imposing mask mandates.
When Biden issued his federal vaccine mandate Governor DeSantis vowed to fight back.
And Governor DeSantis made good on that pledge by signing into law four pieces of legislation that effectively dismantled Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate in the state of Florida.
