The Republican National Committee is planning to sue the Biden administration over President Biden’s new vaccine mandate for millions of workers in the public and private sectors, calling their actions “unconstitutional” and “dictatorial.” ۔
RNC chairwoman Rona McDaniel announced planned legal action just hours after Biden’s speech Thursday night, ordering that two-thirds of all American workers receive 19 shots.
“Joe Biden told the Americans that when he was elected he would not enforce the vaccine order. He lied. Now small businesses, workers and families across the country will pay the price.” McDaniel said in a statement.. “Like many Americans, I have a pro- and anti-vaccine mandate.”
“Many small businesses and workers do not have the money or the legal resources to fight Biden’s unconstitutional actions and dictatorial orders, but when their order is enforced, the RNC administration will protect Americans and their freedom.” Will sue. “
In a separate statement.McDaniel called the president’s agenda “about power, about all control, and about dividing us.”

“It’s not about freedom, or personal choice,” Biden said. “It’s about protecting yourself and the people around you – the people you work with, the people you care about. The people you love … We can’t stop these measures from protecting the vast majority of Americans who have done their part, who want to get back to normal life.

My legal team is already working, and we will defend and protect our people from this illegal mandate.
Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts called the president’s remarks “absolutely outrageous.”
“The president forgot that we live in the United States,” Reckets told Ingram Angle of Fox News. “He thinks we live in the Soviet Union. And his hypocrisy is unbelievable. We have weekly phone calls with governors and White House staff. The president has never been on any of them, and then They are also anxious to tell us that we are not fighting an epidemic. I can tell you, Nebraska will step back, fight any tool that will help us reach this tremendous, glorious level of federal power. Can be found against.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott This is called the new rule. “Attacks on private businesses” and vowed that the state was “already working to stop this seizure of electricity.”
