There is no Governor Joe Biden hates more than Ron DeSantis.
He is standing up for the state of Florida with a tenacity like no other.
And Ron DeSantis just flipped Biden’s life upside down with this epic declaration.
While Joe Biden wants to rule everybody’s life, and remove their personal choice on whether to wear masks or be vaccinated, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis believes the opposite.
DeSantis has been fighting to ensure that residents in Florida have the ability to make their own personal medical decisions.
He has enacted orders blocking schools from enacting mask and vaccine mandates, along with local government agencies across his state.
And for that, he has become Joe Biden’s biggest enemy.
Biden has pledged to fight to block DeSantis’ pro-medical freedom orders.
But DeSantis isn’t deterred, and just this week hammered Biden in a news conference where he threatened massive fines for local governments attempting to mandate the vaccine in Florida, along with vowing to take action against Joe Biden’s new vaccination requirements.
“We are going to stand for the men and women who are serving us,” DeSantis said at the news conference. “We are going to protect Florida jobs. We are not going to let people be fired because of a vaccine mandate.”
The Florida Governor went on to announce that government agencies that force vaccine mandates will be fined.
“If a government agency in the state of Florida forces a vaccine as a condition to employment, that violates Florida law, and you will face a $5,000 fine for every single violation,” DeSantis said. “If you look at places here in Alachua County, like the city of Gainesville, I mean, that’s millions and millions of dollars potentially in fines.”
“We will certainly move to impose the fines as the law requires when we see people that are denied access,” he continued.
DeSantis also went after Joe Biden for his vaccine mandate targeting around 80 million private employees.
“This is not constitutional,” DeSantis said. “Everyone in his administration for 9 months said they don’t have the ability to do this, that [the vaccines] shouldn’t be mandated.”
He also hammered Biden for the “glaring exemptions” in the executive orders, which include postal workers, Members of Congress, and federal employees outside the executive branch.
“I don’t think postal should be forced, don’t get me wrong,” DeSantis said, “but Biden thinks everyone should be forced except, you deliver mail, somehow that’s fine. But, if you’re somebody – a nurse – who’s been working in the ICU for a private hospital for a year and a half treating COVID patients and likely has already had COVID, then somehow you’re going to get fired unless you follow the mandate.”
Ron DeSantis is showing Republican Governors across the country exactly how they should be acting right now.
