State Republicans Prepare Assistance to Citizens Out of Work Due to Vaccine Introduction

GOP officials in Florida, Iowa, Tennessee and Kansas are preparing state aid designed to help those stranded by the widespread introduction of President Joe Biden’s vaccine.

Specifically, Republican lawmakers in these four states are seeking to change their state unemployment rules to allow those who are laid off or forced to resign because of their refusal to take the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus vaccine to be eligible for unemployment benefits. …

The move comes as we approach the deadlines set by Biden’s unprecedented vaccination demands.

In September, Biden presented a broad vaccination mandate, telling the nation that “our patience is running out” for the millions of Americans who chose not to receive the relatively new vaccine.

Initially, the mandates affected as many as 100 million Americans, nearly a third of the entire population of the United States.

These powers will not only require vaccinations for federal employees and military personnel, but will also extend to the private sector through a new Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulation. The OSHA rule requires all firms with 100 or more employees to require vaccinations or weekly testing for the virus.

Congressional Republicans wasted no time in criticizing the measure as an excessive abuse of power by the president and put forward several bills and proposals to weaken mandates.

In mid-November, Republicans in the Senate formally challenged the OSHA rule, using a parliamentary procedure that could completely overturn the rule with only one departure from the Democratic Party.

He also faced problems in the federal judicial system.

Citing Biden’s “waning patience”, 5th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Kurt D. Engelhardt wrote that in order to protect “our constitutional structure … the freedom of people to make strictly personal decisions in accordance with their own convictions – even, or perhaps especially when these decisions upset government officials. “

But Republicans at the state level have also worked hard to challenge the mandates of both the public and private sectors.

According to a report by the National Academy of Public Health Policy, two states – Montana and Tennessee – have completely banned private employers from introducing vaccines.

In Montana, for example, unvaccinated people are guaranteed the same treatment by employers and by law as their vaccinated colleagues, with the exception of any form of discrimination, including in hiring. The law, signed into law by Tennessee Governor Bill Lee, guarantees much the same to Tennessee residents.

In addition, in seven states – Florida, Alabama, West Virginia, Utah, Iowa, Arkansas, and Texas – private employers can require their employees to be vaccinated, but must allow employees to refuse vaccinations for personal, moral, religious, or medical reasons. , or for other reasons.

Another 10 states – Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, Arkansas, Texas, Utah, Indiana, Michigan, North Dakota and Montana – ban government vaccinations.

Now, GOP officials in Florida, Iowa, Tennessee and Kansas are taking it one step further to help those affected by Biden’s mandates.

White House spokesman Jen Psaki denied the notion that mandates would affect unemployment during a press conference.

But the impact of such regulations on employment has already become apparent.

This has been most pronounced in the health sector, where the requirements for vaccines are most stringent. Nurses have warned that the regulations are creating further staff shortages across the country, amid an already worrisome shortage of medical staff.

Their fears, unrelenting by Psaki’s promises, Republicans in these states are considering measures that would expand eligibility for unemployment benefits for those deprived of mandates.

For Americans in these states with deep-seated philosophical, religious, or practical objections to vaccination whose long-term effects have yet to be determined, the expanded eligibility offered by these new proposals could help minimize the harm caused by vaccine prescriptions. …

By offering this expanded right to participate, the GOP is showing friendliness to those citizens who have such reservations, a move that could help the party gain support over the medium term of 2022.
