Joe Biden has broken a huge promise he made to the American people.
And it’s coming back to haunt him.
Ron DeSantis exposed Democrats’ failures with this one key point of data.
President Joe Biden claimed that he was going to stop COVID.
“I am not going to shut down the economy, period. I am going to shut down the virus,” he stressed during the campaign.
Instead Biden is targeting the economy rather than the virus.
Biden’s announced that he will be mandating vaccination, testing, and mask requirements for not just federal employees, but many private businesses, too.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis slammed him on Friday for his remarks.
A reporter questioned DeSantis, noting that while announcing the vaccine mandate, Biden was “obviously referring to” the Florida governor with pointed remarks.
“Well I would just say generally when you’re taking action that’s unconstitutional, that threatens the jobs of the people in my state, many, many thousands of jobs, I’m standing for them,” DeSantis responded. “We’re going to protect their jobs against federal overreach. This is a guy who criticizes the state of Florida for protecting parents’ rights. He says school boards should be able to eliminate parents’ rights and force five-year-old kids to wear masks all day. That’s what he thinks is appropriate government. Yet, here he comes from Washington, D.C. instituting an unprecedented mandate, which even his own people have acknowledged in the past is not constitutional. That’s not leadership.
“And I think the problem I have with Joe Biden, more than anything, this guy doesn’t take responsibility for anything,” DeSantis continued. “He’s always trying to blame other people, blame other states. This is a guy that promised when he ran for president, that he would shut down the virus. If you look now there’s 300% more cases in this country today than a year ago when we had no vaccines at all. So his policies are not working.”
DeSantis noted that the decision wasn’t even taking into account the people who had natural immunity to the virus.
“Many of these people have already recovered and they have immunity.” DeSantis commented. “The idea that somehow you have somebody that gets a Johnson and Johnson, they can work, but someone that’s got natural immunity somehow can’t?
“That natural immunity is strong. So it’s not based on science. And you can say, he’s saying, he’s losing patience with people. You know, at the end of the day, we don’t live with a one person rule in this country. We live in a constitutional system, which people’s rights are respected, but particularly in this juncture, their livelihoods and their jobs have to be protected. I mean, just think about, you know, what this mandate would do. It’s going to drive people out of work, out of hospitals, out of all this stuff where you have a need for people. So it’s totally counterproductive, and I think it will ultimately lose in court. But before that there needs to be action taken to protect the people of our state and hopefully the entire United States. Nobody should lose their job based on this decision.”
