The Biden regime, using the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulatory agency of the Department of Labor, will begin inspecting businesses with over 100 employees to determine whether employees are fully vaccinated with one of the controversial COVID-19 vaccines starting on January 4, 2022. Businesses not compliant with the Biden regime’s vaccine mandate will be fined heavily.
Apparently undaunted by the humiliating defeats Democrats suffered in Virginia and across the country, the Biden regime is pushing ahead with its vaccine mandate. Beginning next year, businesses with more than 100 employees that do not require their workers to be vaccinated, or do not fire unvaccinated employees, will be fined $14,000 per employee that is not compliant. The only way to avoid the fines is to COVID-19 test employees resisting the controversial vaccines weekly.
However, rules are harsher for the overwhelming majority of healthcare workers. In any facility receiving funding from federal programs Medicare and Medicaid, employees must be vaccinated and are not permitted to undergo testing as an alternative.
In effect, Biden is firing an unknown percentage of the 17 million U.S. healthcare workers impacted, and is firing them at a time when shortages of doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers is reportedly diminishing quality of life for patients and workers at hospitals across the country.
Additionally, those who resist the vaccine will be singled out from those who participate in the vaccine program using face masks. Only those who are unvaccinated, per the Biden regime, must continue to wear face coverings at the workplace starting next year.
OUT: Masks as source control.
IN: Masks as punishment and social ostracism for choosing not to get a vaccine.

Worst yet, there is no end in sight to the vaccine mandate. As OSHA has currently outlined the Biden regime’s mandate, it will continue indefinitely, or until the Biden regime wills it to end.
On the heels of this week’s devastating defeat for Democrats in polls across the United States, perhaps most notably in Washington, D.C.’s neighboring Virginia, Senate Republicans announced a plan to stop the vaccine mandate, which went viral after Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS) released a video informing his constituents of the plan. National File reported:
“I hope was President Biden was listening to the people in the state of Virginia yesterday, in a state that he won by double digits, a Democrat governor lost,” said Marshall, a medical doctor. “I think the Virginia people were telling the President we still value our freedoms, our individual liberties.”
“I want the people of Kansas, I want Congress, I want the President to know that we are going to use every tool in our toolbox, every arrow in our quiver to stop Joe Biden’s unlawful vaccine mandate,” said Marshall.
“Including, if we have to, stopping cloture on the CR to fund the government unless they take out this language which harms hard-working Americans.”
Republicans in Virginia, including Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin, made opposing vaccine mandates a key part of their platform throughout the election season. While millions of Americans suffer at the hands of Biden’s mandate, it appears Democrats could suffer politically in the 2022 midterm elections.
