Biden to mandate Covid vaccine for federal workers, removing option to get tested instead
CNBC, Sep 9, 2021

WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden is expected to announce Thursday evening a new requirement for federal employees to receive the coronavirus vaccine, a source familiar with the matter told NBC News.

The executive order will also extend to contractors that work with the U.S. government, impacting a total of 2.1 million employees.

The person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the decision will be announced during the president’s address at 5 p.m. EST.

Earlier this year, Biden ordered all federal employees to prove their coronavirus vaccination status or submit to a series of rigorous safety protocols.
Thursday’s order removes the option for rigorous testing, a development that comes as the United States struggles to contain the highly contagious delta variant.

“This is an American tragedy. People are dying, and will die, who don’t have to die,” Biden said during a White House address in July.

I had no idea Big Pharma had such influence over the fedgov.

Biden is also expected to outline plans to increase virus testing in schools, in an effort to keep them open safely, amid other measures to show that his administration working to tackle the alarming rise in COVID-19 cases, which Biden has blamed for last month's weaker-than-expected jobs report. He's warned could further imperil the nation's economy as some pandemic safety net protections are expiring.

Biden has encouraged COVID-19 vaccine requirements in settings likes schools, workplaces and university campuses, and the White House hopes the strengthened federal mandate will inspire more businesses to follow suit.

Well, IF he can make that stick (I doubt it) perhaps it might "thin the heard" somewhat.  Unintended consequence of course.

'People are being infected at 10x the rate required to end the pandemic' makes utterly no sense. What  percentage of the population are carrying natural antibodies now?

The rolls of Federal Employee workforce is bloated all to hell.  This might be a good thing for the taxpayers if enough people refuse the Fauci Folly.

But on the flip side all that is left in those jobs are the Kool-Aid drinkers.

Not only is Biden going to force all federal workers to be vaccinated, but he's demanding employees who do business with the federal government to be vaccinated.

This is an ASSAULT on individuals' freedoms and livelihoods.

We must fight this.

That sound of footsteps running down the hall that you hear...is the sound of government employees and contractors heading for the exits.

And now I've got a tough decision to make as well.
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

THE ESTABLISHMENT IS THE PROBLEM...NOT THE SOLUTION

There's a lot of conservatives like myself in that workforce...this is going to force a lot of us out.  Only hope now is a religious exemption...unless he disallows that in the EO as well.

What this will do is cost the government a lot of money. When people are let go because they refuse to get the jab then sue for being unjustly fired, they will get reinstated with back pay including overtime and holiday pay.

Considering so few FDA and CDC employees are vaccinated, this should be interesting.  :pop41:
