More on Biden’s misguided vaccine mandate last week. To recap, the President has directed the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to write rules applying to EVERY company with more than 100 employees.
These rules would require workers to either be vaccinated or submit to weekly Covid testing. And get this: failure to comply could result in fines up to $14,000 per… Read more »
Moments ago, a VACCINE MANDATE was announced by President Biden. (After he previously opposed mandates.)
For companies with 100 or more employees, his "plan" would force those employees to either be vaccinated or submit to Covid testing at least once a week.

Government has absolutely no business implementing new mask mandates! This is particularly true on Capitol Hill, which ought to be a shining example for our entire nation. Instead, it's become an exercise in irrational anxiety.
Whether you get vaccinated or not, that’s your own decision! I did. In fact, the overwhelming majority of members and staff in this place are vaccinated, and I’d… Read more »

The agenda outlined by President Biden on Wednesday night is a one-way ticket to a socialistic welfare state with astronomical taxes, and government encroaching on every aspect of our lives.

There’s simply no room to talk… Read more »
