The Tennessee Conservative [By Jason Vaughn] –

Congresswoman Diana Harshbarger has introduced the Blocking Joseph Robinette Biden’s Overreaching Vaccine Mandates Act in the U.S. House of Representatives.

If passed, this bill would prohibit the Federal Government from requiring private sector and Federal employees to receive a COVID-19 vaccine against their will.

Harshbarger said, “The recent vaccine mandates by President Biden are nothing short of authoritarian government overreach that infringe upon our American civil liberties. The Biden administration has revealed that this isn’t about COVID-19, it’s about control.”

“Americans have rightfully lost their trust in President Biden to provide accurate guidance when it comes to COVID-19 as he continues to put politics over science. I’m all for fighting COVID and keeping Americans healthy and safe, and we should use all scientific clinical tools and protections available. But vaccine mandates are not the answer,” Harshbarger said, “That’s why I introduced the Blocking Joseph Robinette Biden’s Overreaching Vaccine Mandates Act in the House of Representatives.”

On September 9, 2021, President Biden announced he will impose sweeping new national COVID vaccine mandates that are likely to face a number of legal challenges from governors, employers, unions and other stakeholder groups.

President Biden’s executive actions that are expected to take effect within the next several weeks would:

  • Require an estimated 4 million federal employees and contractors — including remote workers — to be fully vaccinated, with no alternative option for periodic COVID testing, or they may face job termination;
  • Require more than 50,000 health care facilities that accept Medicare or Medicaid funding to vaccinate their employees (about 17 million people nationwide), or risk losing federal funding.
  • Through the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA), require private employers with 100 or more employees to mandate that their workforce be vaccinated against Covid-19 or tested weekly for the virus. Should the Federal government find noncompliance with this mandate, employers could face massive punitive fines of up to $14,000 per violation.

    This is a woman doing exactly what I would do if I were rich enough to get into politics . Representative Harshbarger is a hero. Those Republicrats that don’t support this will expose themselves for the RINOs that are always out there and thus give us a name to vote out of office and to discredit . Now if only we could get our RINO Governor to do this on a state level we would have a Governor to be proud of . . . like DeSantis in Florida for example. This is one Representative that I will always vote for as long as she keeps on representing the people that put her in office and I was one of them.
