Democratic governor turns on Biden vaccine mandate, not ‘correct’ or ‘effective’ solution

Democratic Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly came out against President Biden’s vaccine mandate as one that is not the “most effective” or “correct” for her state.

“Yesterday, I reviewed the new vaccine mandate from the Biden Administration. While I appreciate the intention to keep people safe, a goal I share, I don’t believe this directive is the correct, or the most effective, solution for Kansas,” she said in a statement released Friday.
“States have been leading the fight against COVID-19 from the start of the pandemic. It is too late to impose a federal standard now that we have already developed systems and strategies that are tailored for our specific needs,” she continued.

Biden directed all private companies with 100 employees or more to enforce a vaccine requirement starting Jan 4.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Saturday, however, granted an emergency stay of the vaccine requirement by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said the action stops Biden “from moving forward with his unlawful overreach.”
