‘Time to resist’: Republicans denounce Biden vax mandate as ‘absolutely unconstitutional,’ claim he has ‘ZERO’ authority to do it

US President Joe Biden’s just-announced plan to force Covid-19 vaccinations by having federal regulators mandate it for businesses under threat of fines is already being denounced as illegal by critics, who are urging resistance.

As part of a six-prong “Path out of the Pandemic” first announced by the White House on Thursday, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Department of Labor will enact a rule mandating vaccinations for businesses with 100 or more employees. Biden is also requiring all federal employees and anyone contracting with the government – more than 2.5 million people – to be vaccinated, or else.
