Lansing, Mich., September 13, 2021 – Last week President Biden issued a potentially unconstitutional mandate which would require businesses with one hundred or more employees to require COVID-19 vaccination. The move, which would put a profound strain on businesses still recovering from the pandemic and subsequent policies of economic suppression, has drawn the ire of Michigan Republicans as the governor and Michigan Democrats refuse to comment. Gongwer reports:
“Some top Michigan Democrats, however, had little to say about the dramatic proposal, which Mr. Biden said is necessary because the refusal of 30 to 40 percent of the country to be vaccinated is allowing the virus to continue ravaging the nation instead of being brought under control.”… “Messages seeking comment from four Michigan U.S. House members – U.S. Rep. Andy Levin (D-Bloomfield Township), U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-Holly), U.S. Rep. Haley Stevens (D-Rochester Hills) and U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Detroit – were not returned prior to publication.”
For many Michigan families, Biden’s mandate feels like a massive overstep by the President which infringes on basic freedoms. In the case of Michigan businesses who are already dealing with a devastating worker shortage, the move feels like another slap in the face from leaders refusing to get out of their way. This radical measure from the President could trigger a constitutional and legal crisis, making the Democrats’ indifference to the mandate even more shocking. Many believe the silence from Michigan Democrats, including Governor Whitmer, is tantamount to approval.
“The people of Michigan are appalled by the lack of leadership being exhibited by their elected officials,” said Eric Ventimiglia, Executive Director for Michigan Rising Action. Ventimiglia continued, “By staying silent on President Biden’s vaccine mandate, Michigan Democrats are once again siding with their party at the cost of families and businesses in their districts. It is time for these officials to step-up and protect their constituents’ individual liberties.”
