Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “GOP governors say Biden’s COVID vaccine mandate will harden resistance”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Two Republican governors who oppose President Biden’s sweeping new COVID-19 vaccine mandate believe the requirement will only harden the resolve of those unwilling to get the jab.

​”​This is a very serious deadly virus, and we’re all together in trying to get an increased level of vaccination out in the population,” Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson said on ​NBC News’ “Meet the Press.”​ “The problem is that I’m trying to overcome resistance, but the president’s actions in a mandate hardens the resistance​.”

He said vaccination requirements for schools have typically come from the state level, not the federal government. ​

“And so this is an unprecedented assumption of federal mandate authority that really disrupts and divides the country. It divides our partnership between the federal government and the states, and it increases the division in terms of vaccination when we should all be together trying to increase the vaccination uptake​,” Hutchinson said. ​

Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts said the shot should be a personal choice and noted that his administration has been providing information about the vaccines and offering encouragement. ​
