Vaccination Deadline Sure to Backfire

In yet another maneuver that is sure not to go over well with voters, White House Sets Jan. 4 Shots-or-Tests Deadline for Workers.

OSHA has issued a federal rule mandating Covid-19 vaccinations or at least weekly testing for workers at U.S. companies with 100 or more employees.

The requirement made public by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration on Thursday will take effect Friday when it’s published in the Federal Register. The first compliance deadline for employers—providing time off for workers to get inoculated and ensuring those who aren’t vaccinated are wearing masks—is Dec. 5. Workers must be fully vaccinated by Jan. 4 or submit to testing.

The emergency temporary standard, which OSHA justified by citing the “grave danger” posed by the lingering Coronavirus pandemic, requires covered employers to develop, implement, and enforce a mandatory Covid-19 vaccination policy or a policy requiring employees to choose either to get vaccinated or to undergo regular Covid-19 testing and wear a face covering at work.

It's one thing for private employers to make rules for their employees and a totally different thing for government to cram down its requirements on businesses. 

And I am a firm supporter of the right of companies to set work rules for their employees.

But I am not in favor of government cramming its rules down the throats of every company with 100 employees.

Midtem Disaster

Democrats are already headed for a midterm election disaster.

I fully expect this decision will add to their misery in the House and it may easily cost Democrats the Senate as well.

Finally, there is a very good chance the Supreme Court will strike this OSHA play down further adding to the pain.

Biden is hugely out of touch with political reality as noted in Democrats Take 180 Degree Wrong Message From Elections.

Regardless of what the Supreme Court does, this is a voluntary kick your own ass move.

Thanks for Tuning In!
