Update — Map of states that won’t comply…
Final update of the states that are suing Biden over Vaccine mandates — Alaska, Kentucky, West Virginia, Kansas, Ohio, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, South Dakota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri, Iowa, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, Louisiana, and Arizona.
The President has no authority to require that Americans inject themselves because of their employment at a private business. The vaccine itself is life-saving, but this unconstitutional move is terrifying. This is still America, and we still believe in freedom from tyrants.

It is not the government’s role to dictate to private businesses what to do.
Once again President Biden is demonstrating his complete disregard for individual freedoms and states’ rights.
As long as I am governor, there will be no government vaccine mandates in Oklahoma.

Biden’s vaccine mandate is an assault on private businesses.
I issued an Executive Order protecting Texans’ right to choose whether they get the COVID vaccine & added it to the special session agenda.
Texas is already working to halt this power grab.https://t.co/TwoQMhDxoM

Newest threat from Joe Biden:
“We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin.”
I say to you Mr. President, our patience is gone.

State AGs, including WV, will not tolerate such blatant & illegal federal overreach from @POTUS.
Buckle up America— our President is the opposite of a unifier in chief.
Looking forward to seeing more details about Biden’s wild vaccine proposal. We’ll protect WV & America.

I think the President made a mistake by announcing federal vaccine mandates. We should be focused on the science of preventing virus spread – the vaccine is our best tool to stop COVID – but people and business owners should make their own decisions about vaccination.
