23 GOP Attorneys General Threaten to Sue Biden Over 'Disastrous' COVID Vaccine Mandate

Source: Newsweek

In a letter to President Joe Biden, two dozen of the nation's Republican attorneys general said Thursday they would seek legal action if the White House's proposal to require vaccines for 100 million Americans is carried out.

The GOP prosecutors chastised Biden for the proposed measure, which would see a federal vaccine requirement imposed for private-sector employees, health care workers and federal contractors. The requirement, announced earlier this month, is being enacted through a rule from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as part of an effort to inoculate Americans from the more deadly delta variant.

"Your plan is disastrous and counterproductive," the prosecutors, led by Attorney General Alan Wilson of South Carolina, wrote in a letter sent to Biden. "If your Administration does not alter its course, the undersigned state Attorneys General will seek every available legal option to hold you accountable and uphold the rule of law."

The OSHA rule, which covers nearly two-thirds of the private sector workforce, would last six months, after which it must be replaced by a permanent measure. Employers that don't comply could face penalties of up to $13,600 per violation.

'Disastrous' is what the GOP is these days. Many the states suing already have mandatory vaccination laws for other diseases.

These people need to grow the fuck up.

3. So you don't have to find it, although it is not difficult.

Jacobson v. Massachusetts, 197 U.S. 11 (1905), was a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court upheld the authority of states to enforce compulsory vaccination laws. The Court's decision articulated the view that individual liberty is not absolute and is subject to the police power of the state.

19. Yes. But that was a case involving a state vaccine mandate

The issues that will be raised in challenges to the OSHA order will be whether (a) OSHA has statutory authority to impose a mandate and (b) whether the Constitution confers authority on the federal government to impose a nationwide vaccine mandate.

Don't rule out the possibility that a Trump-stacked court will find a way to distinguish Jacobson.

5. Just because they consider it disastrous and counterproductive?

I didn't know that was a legal reason.

If that is okay couldn't it be used against the Republican Party?

6. All these SOBs want to do is create chaos, they want to perpetuate the anxiety the buffoon created

GOP doesn't know how to govern, they are constantly looking for ways to screw the country, how so many people cannot see this is beyond comprehension. That is the only thing they do all day, how can they cheat in elections, how can they destroy the freedom of people, how can they put money in their banks, how can they hurt people...The title of the book "It is all about the cruelty" is spot on.

7. Parents here in AZ need an MMR to register their children for school. I needed it to obtain my

teaching position.

I don't see the problem with this, except they have all bought into the Trumpism kool-aid.

9. They are engratiating themselves with the Republican base, but they are helping

to marginalize the Republican Party. Polls are showing that a strong majority support the mandates. They just keep digging themselves into a bigger hole.

11. First of all, there is no mandate. No one is being forced to take the shot.

There is no criminal penalty, no fine, no jail time, for those that opt out.

A person may be restricted from entering certain areas where others are at risk of exposure if they do not have the shot, or, alternatively, have a test showing they are clear of the virus.

This is a policy supported by a large majority of Americans, it is within the bounds of previous policies, and it is justified by the deaths of hundreds of thousands Americans.

If the Republican wingnuts want a huge public battle over this, then they are qrazy.

Key to the defense would be death rates where the policy is implemented compared to death rates where the policy is ignored.

The threat to public health is severe, vaccinations are just about universal, freedom to die is not a winning issue

Yes, yes, even the kiddies. Sometimes the Wrath of the Lord is the only way to get a message across.

20. Take out full page ads listing every person who has died in the AG's state.

Make them explain why they want list to grow bigger. What's in it for them? Has the governor been personally written letters of condolence to the families of each of these victims?
