Fauci recently endorsed the idea of a vaccine mandate for air travel
First on Granthshala: NS Republican The National Committee (RNC) is hammering a new video President Bidens Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci For his flip-flops on the vaccine mandate.
The ad, first obtained by Granthshala News, contains multiple clips highlighting Fauci’s past statements that cast doubt on the federal coronavirus vaccine mandate.
“There’s no secret that I think we shouldn’t have central [vaccine] mandate from the federal government,” Fauci said last month, encouraging businesses to “seriously consider the idea of making vaccination mandatory in the enterprise for which they are responsible whether it is a university or a place of business.”
FAUCI backs need for COVID vaccine for air travel: ‘I will support it’
Fauci said in another highlight from July 2020, “I don’t see it nationally just because of all the conditions that encroach on a person’s freedom to choose their own health over their own.”
Fauci was also noted as saying that the federal government “does not want to mandate” vaccines and that doing so “would not be mandatory and appropriate.”
“Joe Biden and his entire administration repeatedly promised there would be no vaccine mandate. He lied — and the RNC is holding him accountable,” RNC Rapid Response Director Tommy Piggott told Granthshala News in a Thursday statement. .
The video, set to drop on Thursday, comes after the Biden administration imposed a broad mandate on all businesses with more than 100 employees, requiring employees to either be vaccinated or tested regularly.
The Biden administration also requires vaccines for all federal employees and contractors. Fauci recently backed the idea of a vaccine mandate for air travelers.
“I would support that you should be vaccinated if you want to get on a plane and travel with other people,” Fauci said last week.
The White House hasn’t explicitly taken a federal vaccination requirement for air travel off the table, but with Fauci’s ability to bend Biden’s ear on health matters, the administration could speak up that way if the president chooses to follow Fauci. Huh.
