Congressional Republicans plan to pressure Democrats to pull the plug on any funding to enforce the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate, according to a new report.
The concept is this: With the current continuing resolution that funds government operations expiring Friday, conservatives are mulling the use of procedural mechanisms that would force a government shutdown as a means of blocking any money that would be used to enforce the mandate, according to Politico.
The Biden administration issued a rule through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to force employers with 100 or more workers to have them all vaccinated. The rule, which is in limbo pending court challenges, would be enforced by inspectors who monitor compliance.
Republicans are looking for a deal that would ensure that no matter what the courts ultimately decide, the rule has no practical clout because there is no money to enforce it.
Absent that, as indicated by Republican Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, it is time for another round of brinkmanship over the possibility of a shutdown.
President Biden is waging a cruel campaign to punish unvaccinated Americans. My colleagues and I will use all means at our disposal to make sure no American has to choose between jab or job. pic.twitter.com/T5X1AC2z9l

“I’m calling on my colleagues to stand strong and NOT fund the government that’s going to go do PROPAGANDA on our kids and go put these UNCONSTITUTIONAL MANDATES in place.”
