Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts is asking for an end to unconstitutional vaccine mandates, calling them “horrible policy,” and questioning whether or not they are even legal.
“These vaccine mandates are horrible policy,” Ricketts said.
“As we’re seeing in the courts, they’re very questionable when it comes to the lawful ability of the administration to do this through executive order. But just from a standpoint of impacts, you know, we’re talking about vaccine mandates for organizations that accept CMS dollars that would hugely impact our rural hospitals. CEOs of these hospitals tell me they’d have to discontinue services like delivering babies because they wouldn’t have enough workers,” Rickets added.
Next, Ricketts dropped the hammer when he added that the Biden administration is “totally out of touch with what’s going on in the middle of the country.”
“So, you have got to weigh the cost balance on this, and the administration has not,” Ricketts said. “They’re totally out of touch with what is going on in the middle of the country. So, it is very good news that we see that they’re constantly being stopped whether it’s the OSHA rules, which OSHA has suspended their implementation or their enforcement of those vaccine mandates nationwide.”
“These vaccine mandates have to be put to an end,” Ricketts concluded.
