Joe Biden is working overtime to give Dr. Anthony Fauci everything he wants.
Dr. Fauci is one of the most powerful people in America today for that reason.
And Fauci is cheering for Biden after he launched a sick scheme to crush businesses for a crazy reason.
Joe Biden shocked the world when he announced his most recent vaccine mandate.
It applies to private businesses with over 100 employees, and has fines that would cripple all but the biggest businesses in America.
And in Biden’s $3.5 trillion “infrastructure” bill, things just got a lot worse.
The bill creates an enforcement mechanism for the mandate that increases fines up to $700,000 for each individual violation.
While the fines run as high as $70,000 for serious infractions, it jumps to the staggering $700,000 for willful or repeated violations.
This mechanism is buried on page 168 of the spending bill, and uses a section of labor law which deals with workplace hazards.
If enacted, this would rapidly bankrupt companies that refuse to comply with the vaccine mandate, likely putting millions of Americans out of work.
A senior Biden administration official described it as an “aggressive, comprehensive’ plan to fight COVID as part of their mission to ‘vaccinate the unvaccinated,’” according to the Daily Mail.
“It’s simple – if you want to work for the federal government, you must be vaccinated. If you want to do business with the government, you must vaccinate your workforce,” the senior administration added, seemingly ignoring the fact that this applies to countless private businesses, including those that do not work with the government.
These orders show that Joe Biden doesn’t care about individual choices.
And it shows that he can’t be trusted at his word.
For months, Biden and top officials in his administration scoffed at the idea that they would force vaccine mandates on private businesses.
But not only are they going against their word, they are pushing more aggressively than anybody could have predicted just months ago.
Following Biden’s lead, other vaccine mandates are being pushed across the country.
California Governor Gavin Newsom just announced a vaccine mandate for all school children in the state, in both private and public schools.
And Sen. Dianne Feinstein has filed a bill to require vaccinations in order to travel by air.
