re: Biden vaccine mandate does not apply to Congress

Why isn’t Congress passing its own mandate?

Democrats are pushing for it now that Pfizer was approved by the FDA, but they thankfully can’t unilaterally do it in Congress. They know it will be a fight.

The article even says they’re trying to force a mandate in Congress. The quote from Pelosi is from April — she has since changed her tune.

The OP doesn’t know how the federal government works and did a shitty click-bait job of quoting the article.

ETA - Like I said, the mandate is BS and Pelosi is a bitch, but the OP is still an idiot for how he framed the article.

And, again, if they weren’t hypocrites, they would pass their own version of a mandate for themselves.

ETA: they have a majority in both houses

Our govt is "do as I say, not as I do", and we need wholesale changes.

They work for us, not the other way around.

How anyone can still be a Democrat at this point baffles me. Seriously, how freaking brainwashed do you have to be to not see them for what they are?



Biggest problem in this country right now, that I’m not sure has a solution, is a lot of Democrats feel the same way about people that vote Republican.

re: Biden vaccine mandate does not apply to Congress
Headlines usually dumb down this sort of thing to "President orders federal employees ..." when an order really only applies to executive branch agencies (which make up the vast majority of fed employees). The orders usually do not apply to the handful of employees of the legislative or judicial branch.

Take, for example, the masks mandate for federal employees. By its terms it applied only to executive branch employees, but the order asked the heads of the other two branches to adopt similar rules, and they did.

It does not look like the EO for the vaccine mandate includes such a request of the other two branches. LINK

People need to realize that both Democrats and Republicans suck and kick them all to the curb. They both tell their followers what they want to hear and then go do whatever the hell they want and get rich screwing over America.

Anyone seen anything in writing on an official document from either the DOD or whatever government agency you work for that gives details of the mandate?

re: Biden vaccine mandate does not apply to Congress
To be fair, the reporting on this makes it sound like Congress was given an exception to the Executive Order - but that’s not the case. The EO doesn’t apply to anyone in the legislative or judicial branches, as the president’s EO only applies to the executive branch of government. It’s a check and balance of the powers of the executive branch. This is a big difference from Congress members being given a special exemption (like they have on things in the past). Congress sucks and I absolutely believe they’re corrupt, but this title is misleading

Again, the issue is that they have a majority in both houses, and some Republicans who would likely vote with them.

They could pass a mandate today, if they actually wanted to.

Why haven’t they passed a mandate for Congress?

Exactly! It’s BS and everyone in the whole country should be appalled at the hypocrisy, to the point we at the very least vote them out, let alone try them in court for treason. That’s the point of my sharing this.
Look at the all the idiots still voting for this crap!!!
Vote them out now, or there may never be freedom in the country again.
THAT is the issue.
Some will come here now and say “well your just one of THEM conspiracy nuts”
Funny thing is ALL Those “nutty” conspiracies are coming to pass. One after another.
