Biden once said that he wants to work with Republicans and during his inaugural address behind fencing Joe called for unity:
To overcome these challenges – to restore the soul and to secure the future of America – requires more than words.
It requires that most elusive of things in a democracy:
In another January in Washington, on New Year’s Day 1863, Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation.
When he put pen to paper, the President said, “If my name ever goes down into history it will be for this act and my whole soul is in it.”
My whole soul is in it.
Today, on this January day, my whole soul is in this:
Bringing America together.
Well, Joe finally did it, he got the unity he called for just not the way he hoped. Senate Republicans and Democrats are joining together to terminate his coronavirus vaccine mandate.
Currently, Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) are expected to join Republican to terminate the OSHA mandate, it has also been reported that more Democrats may join as well.
In response, the Brandon administration has announced they will veto the bill.
“If it comes to the President’s desk, he will veto it,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki during a press briefing.
“We certainly hope the Senate — Congress — will stand up to the anti-vaccine and testing crowd, and we’re going to continue to work to implement these,” she replied.
They are’t the “ant-vaccine” crowd Jen, it’s anti-mandate crowd.
Republican Senator Mike Braun (R-IN) has been instrumental in forming bipartisan support and using the Congressional Review Act to try and get rid of Biden’s mandate.
“I got to believe a few of them [Democrats] are going to say, ‘Wait. Do I want to buy into more of this craziness, or do I want to get reelected?’” Braun told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview. “So it’ll put them all on record.”
Tester wrote in a statement that he will block the mandate after hearing from businesses in his community.
“Over the past few months, I’ve repeatedly heard concerns from Montana’s small business and community leaders about the negative effect the private business vaccine mandate will have on their bottom lines and our state’s economy,” he said in a wrote.
