Biden Just Put Vaccine Mandate Hypocrite Governors On Blast [View all]

President Biden said:

But, we are facing a lot of pushback. Especially from some of the Republican governors. Governors of Florida and Texas doing everything they can to undermine the lifesaving requirements I have proposed. So the same governors attacking are in states with the strictest vaccine mandates for children attending school in the entire country.

For example, in Mississippi, children are required to be vaccinated against measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox, Hepatitis B, polio, tetanus, and more. These are state requirements. But, in the midst of the pandemic, it already has taken over 600,000 lives. I propose a requirement for covid vaccines, and the governor of the state calls it a tyrannical type move. This is the worst kind of politics. It is putting the lives of citizens of their states, especially children, at risk, and I refuse to give into it. - PoliticusUSA
