Manchin Says ‘No’ to Business Vaccine Mandate

Just when it seemed like Joe Biden was about to get a major win, Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) has put another wrench into the works.

Manchin has now come forward to say that he does not support any federal vaccine mandates on business.

This presents yet another major roadblock to Senator Schumer (D-N.Y.) being able to put the reconciliation package on the floor next week.

Not So Quick, Joe

Manchin is a Democrat, but he has a very moderate base.

They made it quite clear to Manchin that they do not support the majority of Biden’s big spending bill.

Manchin has caved to the point that he is even willing to use reconciliation, but he is picking some key measures from this legislation and blocking them.

The latest being the vaccine mandates for business.

Manchin stated, “Let me be clear, I do not support any government vaccine mandate on private businesses.

“That’s why I have cosponsored and will strongly support a bill to overturn the federal government vaccine mandate for private businesses.

“I have long said we should incentivize, not penalize, private employers whose responsibility it is to protect their employees from COVID-19.

“I have personally had both vaccine doses and a booster shot, and I continue to urge every West Virginian to get vaccinated themselves.”

Senator Mike Braun (R-IN) applauded Manchin and the effort to dial down federal overreach.

He stated, “I hope that more Democratic Senators and Representatives will follow Senator Manchin’s strong lead and stand up against this federal overreach that will wreak havoc on our recovering economy and trample on the rights of millions of Americans.”

Schumer has vowed to put the big spending bill on the Senate floor by December 13, but this could put a stop to that.

If Democrats and Biden do not have that reconciliation bill passed before the year rolls over, it will be considered a crushing defeat for this administration.

  1. I really find this ticking me off. If someone gets the shot, I can’t give it to them and they can’t give it to me right? So why do so many that get the shot want to force others into getting it? I would love to know the ACTUAL facts on how many have died with and without it. But strong arming people into submission will never work. I don’t care if I ever fly or take a train or even a cruise ship. I’m content staying in my surroundings and not have dictators instructing me that I have to have it. I can get groceries delivered or pick them up. I work and pay my bills but I work primarily alone too. So the threat isn’t that real to me. Leave me the hell alone, if I want the shot I will get it but no one is going to strong arm me into anything!

    1. Even with the shot the virus can be transmitted…….. as many articles have informed.

    2. A question asked, but not answered! IF THE VACCINE IS: 1. EFFECTIVE 2. SAFE; then why are some who receive it (a) still contacting the virus, and (b) some have even died, who post shot still contacted the virus, this after being fully vaccinated? Another possibly unanswered question: is the absolute proof that those who are vaccinated have a higher survival rate, then those who do not get it, or who have natural immunity?

  2. There is so much crap in this build back bad bill the these demrats should be commu sure is not for the American people.

  3. I love the fact that some Demorats have the guts to say no and stick up for the American people!

  4. It should be up to each person whether to get the shot or not not the federal government
