The Republican National Committee is considering suing the Biden administration over the mandatory Covid-19 vaccination order, which could affect up to 80 million workers.
“Joe Biden when he was elected told Americans he wouldn’t mandate vaccinations. He lied. Now small businesses, workers and families across America will pay the price.” Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said on September 9.
McDaniel added that once Biden’s executive order mandating the Covid-19 vaccine goes into effect, the RNC will sue the administration to “protect the American people and everyone’s liberties”.
“Like many Americans, I support vaccines but also oppose mandatory vaccination,” McDaniel emphasized.
US President Biden on September 9 announced a plan to force businesses with more than 100 employees to ensure that all employees receive a Covid-19 vaccine or are tested for nCoV weekly.
“It’s not about freedom or personal choice. It’s about protecting yourself and those around you, the people you’ll work with, the people you care about and love. As General President, my job is to protect all Americans,” he said.
The US President also sent a message to those who have not been vaccinated against Covid-19: “We have been patient, but our patience is running out, while your refusal costs us. “.
Following Biden’s announcement, Oklahoma Attorney General John O’Connor also announced that he was preparing to sue the federal government. Several Republican governors have also vowed to oppose the mandatory vaccination requirement.
The US is currently the largest epidemic area in the world with more than 41.5 million infections and nearly 675,000 deaths from nCoV. About 61.95% of Americans have received the Covid-19 vaccine, of which 52.66% have received two doses.
About 80 million Americans have not been vaccinated against Covid-19. One study found that the majority of these people were younger, less educated, and mostly Republicans.
