Republicans want to sue US government for mandatory vaccination

The Democratic President’s announcement, Joe Biden, from what to Covid vaccination will be mandatory for two-thirds of workers has generated outrage among Republicans, who intend to sue the country’s government of individual liberties.

“This looks like a dictatorship,” criticized House Republicans even before Biden finished his speech on Thursday. The Democratic president said, “We’ve been patient, but our patience is running out.”

After months of trying to convince Americans to get vaccinated, including with rewards, the president adopted a different tone in announcing his new “strategy”: making vaccination mandatory for about 100 million Americans. “We all had to pay for their refusal,” he said, referring to the 80 million Americans who have not yet been vaccinated, which represent 25% of the population.

This Friday, the wave of indignant reactions from conservatives, who are demanding freedom and threatening to file legal actions, grew. This is an “attack on private enterprise,” countered Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, announcing that he has signed an executive order to “protect Texans’ right to choose.”
