Joe Biden is trying to force his unconstitutional vaccine mandate on up to 100 million American workers.
But Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is standing in the way.
And Joe Biden will be shaking with anger over the lawsuit Ron DeSantis just filed against his federal vaccine mandate.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has stood up to the Biden administration’s authoritarian COVID measures during the entire course of the pandemic.
DeSantis kept Florida’s economy open, prohibited schools from requiring masks, and banned local governments from enacting a vaccine mandate or requiring proof of vaccination.
When Joe Biden announced a federal vaccine mandate on up to 100 million Americans, Ron DeSantis vowed to block the mandate from being implemented in Florida.
According to Biden’s mandate, all federal workers and contractors have until December 8 to be fully vaccinated against the coronavirus.
But on Thursday, Ron DeSantis followed through on his promise by filing a federal lawsuit “against Biden, NASA, NASA Administrator Bill Nelson, and officials within the White House Office of Management and Budget and the Department of Defense” over Biden’s vaccine mandate.
The case is Florida v. Nelson, No. 8:21-cv-02524 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.
Calling Biden’s vaccine mandate a “radical intrusion on the personal autonomy of American workers,” DeSantis’ lawsuit seeks a preliminary nationwide injunction to block the mandate from taking effect.
“Because the government’s unlawful vaccine requirement seeks to interfere with Florida’s employment policies and threaten Florida with economic harm and the loss of federal contracts, the State seeks relief from this Court,” the lawsuit states.
DeSantis also pointed out that the vaccine mandate would harm the economy.
“It’s important for us to take a stand,” DeSantis said at a press conference announcing the lawsuit. “Tossing people aside is just not something we can tolerate here in the state of Florida, so we are going to do everything we can.”
Ron DeSantis is already wildly popular with Republican voters over his willingness to stand up to the Democrats and the left-wing media.
And DeSantis filing a lawsuit against Joe Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandate should make him even more popular with Republican voters.
