King Joe actually said that the unvaccinated have to be vaccinated to protect the vaccinated. If the vaccine works, why? And if it doesn’t work, why take it? Don’t ask the King, he’s way too far gone to answer those kinds of questions. From Megan Redshaw at childrenshealthdefense.org:
In his most forceful move yet, President Biden on Thursday ordered sweeping new federal COVID vaccine requirements for as many as 100 million Americans — including private sector employees, healthcare workers and federal contractors — threatening thousands in fines for businesses that do not comply.
In his speech, Biden made no exception for the millions of Americans with natural immunity, and did not mention exemptions for those with medical conditions or sincerely held religious beliefs — as White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki in a Wednesday press briefing had suggested would be the case.
“We’ve been patient. But our patience is wearing thin, and your refusal has cost all of us,” Biden said. The unvaccinated minority “can cause a lot of damage, and they are.”
According to the Associated Press (AP), Biden’s latest move is driven at least in part by self-interest, as he tries to defend his own job performance on the issue most important to voters.
The resurgence of the virus has sent Biden’s poll numbers to the lowest point yet of his presidency, AP reported. An AP-NORC poll conducted in August found 54% of Americans approved of Biden’s stewardship of the pandemic, down from 66% the month before, driven by a drop in support among Republicans and political independents.
