“I don’t think it should be mandatory, I wouldn’t demand it would be mandatory,” Joe Biden said about COVID vaccines nine months before mandating vaccine requirements that could affect 100 million workers.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters, “So, if we could - but we can't require vaccinations for the (House) members, much less for the American people,” back in August.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki chimed in on vaccination mandates in July, stating, “that’s not the role of the federal government.”

Last month Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said, “I don’t think you’ll ever see a mandating of the vaccine, particularly for the general public.”

So of course, Biden mandated vaccinations in September, by directing OSHA to write a rule requiring employers with at least 100 workers to force employees to get vaccinated or produce weekly test results showing they are virus free or face penalties.

In swift fashion, more than 20 Governors and/or state attorneys general have announced their plans to bring legal action to oppose Biden’s sweeping jab edict.
