Biden’s speech announced the vaccine mandate. He shared it with an executive order… and colored the nation in black.
His hands are already bloody neither all waters in the world could wash them.
17 Republican Governors disagree with this decision, and they issued their statements in direct opposition to Biden’s EO.
“In his most forceful pandemic actions and words, President Joe Biden on Thursday announced sweeping new federal vaccine requirements affecting as many as 100 million Americans in an all-out effort to increase COVID-19 vaccinations and curb the surging delta variant,” the AP stated.
“Speaking at the White House, Biden sharply criticized the roughly 80 million Americans who are not yet vaccinated, despite months of availability and incentives,” the report continued.
Biden on people who haven't gotten vaccinated:

“We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin,” Biden said. “And your refusal has cost all of us.”
Biden threatened the Republican governors and said that he would get them out of the way with his powers.
“Let me be blunt,” Biden said. “My plan also takes on elected officials in states that are undermining you in these life-saving actions. Right now, local school officials are trying to keep children safe in a pandemic while their governor picks a fight with them and even threatens their salaries or their jobs. Talk about bullying the schools.”
“If they’ll not help, if these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic, I will use my power as president to get them out of the way,” he added. “The Department of Education has already begun to take legal action against states undermining protection that local school officials have ordered.”
Below you can see the statements:
"How could we get to the point in this country where you would not let them earn a living because of their choice on the vaccine? I just think that's fundamentally wrong. I do not believe that people should lose their jobs over this issue, and we will fight that." @GovRonDeSantis pic.twitter.com/QEm1ankGTm

I will pursue every legal option available to the state of Georgia to stop this blatantly unlawful overreach by the Biden administration.

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt says as long as I am governor, there will be no government vaccine mandates in state.

Biden’s vaccine mandate is an assault on private businesses.
I issued an Executive Order protecting Texans’ right to choose whether they get the COVID vaccine & added it to the special session agenda.
Texas is already working to halt this power grab.https://t.co/TwoQMhDxoM

We have to remind you that in December, Biden shared that he doesn’t want to make the vaccines mandatory because it should be a personal choice. However, he changed his mind.
“I don’t think it should be mandatory. I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory,” Biden said at a news conference in Wilmington, Del. “Just like I don’t think masks have to be made mandatory nationwide.”
“I’ll do everything in my power as president of the United States to encourage people to do the right thing and, when they do it, demonstrate that it matters,” he said.
A horrible person.
