Texas Governor Greg Abbott Bans Vaccine Mandates
Republican Governors have been opposing mandates of any kind ever since the pandemic broke out in the US. Earlier, it was an argument about mask mandates. However, now the argument has expanded after the vaccination program started in the US. Liberals and conservatives are fighting over vaccine mandates now. Biden is pushing for it while Republicans like Texas Governor Greg Abbott are opposing it. Abbott has now passed an order banning all kinds of vaccine mandates in Texas. Moreover, he said, “The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, & our best defense against the virus, but should always remain voluntary & never forced.” The ban includes the vaccine mandate issued by private corporations for their employees.
Greg Abbott Criticizes Joe Biden For Vaccine Mandate
Joe Biden has allowed private companies to issue vaccine mandates for their employees. However, Abbott is not in line with this idea. He criticized Biden for giving such freedom to private companies. Furthermore, he said, “In yet another instance of federal government overreach, the Biden Administration is now bullying many private entities into imposing COVID-19 vaccine mandates, causing workforce disruptions that threaten Texas’s continued recovery from the COVID-19 disaster.” Abbott has been going all out to oppose Biden in every possible manner.
