Members of Congress and Their Staff Are Exempt From Biden's Vaccine Mandate
Members of Congress and their staff are exempt from Biden's vaccine mandate
The New York Times reported on Thursday that the executive order doesn't apply to those who work for Congress or the federal courts, citing White House officials.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said at a press conference on April 29 that the House couldn't require members to be vaccinated. Video clips of those remarks gained renewed attention online following Biden's announcement.
"So—so here is the thing. We are—we cannot require someone to be vaccinated. That's just not what we can do. It is a matter of privacy to know who is or who isn't," Pelosi said.
Now I’m PRO vaccine but this is that bullshyt
Be a dumbass nikka bruhs
American politics is a straight up circus
Congress is a separate but equal branch of the government. A president's executive orders do not apply to them. Same with The Supreme Court.
Schumer and Pelosi could probably mandate that anyone coming into the House or Senate need to be vaccinated but the issue comes when it has to be enforced.
Just the mask mandate that Pelosi enacted in The House is barely being paid attention to by The Republican Reps in the House.
He literally doesn't have the legal authority to do it.
We know this....my issue is...why isn't this being legislatively being drawn up to mandate it?
Everybody should be forced to wear a mask
Now this is some BS if Fed employees and GOV employees are mandated I'm not seeing how they aren't.
This gives people justifiable means to not get it outside of religion and medical waivers.
Lawmakers are the ones that like to say "we're all in this together" set aside the point that the President does not have power of them, shouldn't lawmakers take the lead (especially democrats) who sit in congress (their workplace) and get vaccinated?
They get off on a technicality of separate branches of government. I'm sure there is 10--20 members who would make it a big deal and tell there supporters there under attack.
