Unconstitutional vaccine mandates are not yet a thing of the past, and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has announced a vaccine mandate that applies to private-sector workers beginning December 27.
Senator Tom Cotton recently blasted de Blasio for his mandate.
Cotton said de Blasio’s “COVID theatrics” are a “counterproductive overreach.”
“Cotton argued the Democratic governors and mayors imposing such mandates are deterring people from getting vaccinated,” reported Breitbart News.
“This is a counterproductive overreach by Bill de Blasio,” Cotton said. “He, like a lot of other Democratic mayors and governors, seems to be engaged in COVID theatrics to see who can have the most radical proposals. Again, there’s lots of people who haven’t been vaccinated who have sound reasons to not be vaccinated. Either … they’ve had the coronavirus before, so their antibodies are at least as strong if not stronger, or perhaps they are allergic to some of the ingredients in these vaccines.”
Cotton continued, “these kind of one size fits all mandate hammers simply do not work. They probably deter some people from getting vaccines just because of outrage over the overreach.”
