Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said on January 13 that the Biden administration’s Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) vaccine mandate is “insane,” flying in the face of the conservative Supreme Court that ended up allowing the mandate.
“If you believe that the Constitution — like the founding fathers believed — that the Constitution is one of limited and enumerated powers, you cannot authorize the federal government acting … like a state police power.”
DeSantis was fired up about how the mandates would impact Americans in states that didn’t prepare like Florida did.
“In other states, they have fired nurses for not having vaxed even though most of them have immunity. So, they fire them but now, they’re short-handed. So what are they doing? They are bringing back on the job vaccinated nurses who are currently COVID-positive.”
He concluded by calling the CMS mandate “absolutely insane, especially given the ineffectiveness, you know, of these shots to actually stop transmission between individuals.”
