Biden’s new vaccine mandate for federal workers has caused quite an uproar. The mandate applies to every federal employee, healthcare workers, and numerous businesses. It applies to millions of Americans. But you know who it doesn’t apply to? Congress — or Biden himself.

Biden’s mandate exempts members of Congress and the federal court system as well as their staffers, according to a new report from Fox News. The entire legislative and judicial branches of the government don’t have to get the jab — which leaves many Americans asking “why us and not them?” Fox reports:

In April, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Congress couldn’t mandate the vaccine among members and that it was a “matter of privacy.” In early August, she signaled she would be open to mandating the vaccine once it was granted full approval by the Food and Drug Administration, but she has not appeared to have revisited the issue since Pfizer’s vaccine was approved late last month.

On Aug. 3, a group of House Democrats sent a letter to the Attending Physician of Congress, Dr. Brian Monahan, asking him to mandate vaccines for members of Congress and their staff or to require twice-weekly COVID-19 testing. It is not clear how many members of the House and Senate remain unvaccinated, but the number is estimated to be very low.

As part of his plan announced Thursday, Biden said companies with 100 or more employees will have to mandate vaccines or weekly COVID-19 testing under a forthcoming emergency order by the Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), which will apply to more than 80 million private-sector workers. The administration said companies that don’t comply can face fines of almost $14,000. 

It’s unclear why Pelosi and her friends in Congress are not required to get vaccinated like the rest of us, but this two-tier system of requirements does nothing to instill confidence in Americans s far as vaccines are concerned. If they are completely safe, why do our nation’s leaders not have to get the jab? This is a question we will not see the Biden administration answer, unfortunately.

Separation of church and state exists for a reason — so that the government can’t take control of religious organizations. But Biden has shown thus far that he doesn’t care one bit about the Constitution — and his latest attempt to subvert churches shows that.

On Monday, Joe Biden demanded that pastors and priests push the COVID-19 vaccine on their congregations. Many are choosing not to take the vaccine because at least some of them contain aborted baby parts. Others have strong religious convictions that prevent it. Still more want to study the side effects. There are many reasons people might want to wait or avoid the vaccine. Biden wants to weaponize God against those who are apprehensive.

Asked how he planned to“promote the vaccine among skeptics,” Biden said something unbelievable. “I urge all local docs and ministers and priests to talk about why it’s important to get that vaccine,” Biden decreed. “And even after that, until everyone is in fact vaccinated, to wear this mask.”

“They say the thing that has even more impact than anything Trump would say to the MAGA folks is what the local doctor, what the local preachers, what the local people in the community say,” Biden added.

But it’s not just people the “Unity President” derisively calls “MAGA Folks” who are uneasy about this rushed vaccine. African-Americans, for example, have no trust for the vaccine at all. Ultimately, this comes down to our rights. We have the right to not receive the vaccine if we do not choose to. As Amercans, we can choose not to put a foreign substance in our bodies. The Left believes “my body my choice” when it comes to killing babies. But when it comes to injecting a vaccine, some of which contain those murdered babies, they are of the opinion that we have no choice in the matter.

If you believe the mask or vaccine are right for you, by all means use them. If not, don’t. Make your own informed choices regarding your health.
