As keeps being said by so many, this isn’t about science, is it? It seems to be more about using political authority. Further, as so many keep saying, the people who are wanting to mandate vaccines for all are expressing that vaccines do not actually work to protect those who took them from COVID. I’m fully in favor of the vaccine. The point in me taking it was to be protected from getting int (it was 94% effective at the time), and knowing symptoms would be very light if I did get it. I wasn’t worried about others getting COVID. If everyone has to take it for it to work, then they’re saying “it doesn’t work as advertised”
Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, each state has taken its own approach on masking, vaccine distribution and education.
(lots of whining about Florida and DeSantis)
It is true that our constitutional design allows that states can be the laboratories of democracy, but the slogan is incomplete. It comes from a 1932 case, where the Supreme Court struck down a state regulation that it thought arbitrarily required vendors of ice to obtain licenses, unlike vendors in other industries. Justice Louis Brandeis dissented, arguing: “It is one of the happy incidents of the federal system that a single courageous State may, if its citizens choose, serve as a laboratory; and try novel social and economic experiments without risk to the rest of the country.”
That last part is key. While the Constitution allows states to govern their internal affairs, it also provides mechanisms to protect everyone else from their poor decisions.
Biden is doing just that, leveraging the power of the federal government to protect citizens from the impacts of the ill-informed policies that are enabling the virus to continue mutating and spreading throughout the population. Enacting a new emergency rule requiring employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforces are fully vaccinated or tested weekly is a big step in the right direction. But it isn’t nearly big enough.
Actually, in most cases, it doesn’t provide mechanisms, because of that pesky 10th Amendment. And in the few cases that it does, that power goes to Congress to pass a law within the framework of the Constution, not the Executive to unilaterally determine how things will go. But, you know Progressives only care about Presidential overreach and dictatorial behavior when a Republican is in office, claiming they’re dictators even when the Republican in question is doing the opposite. The COVID tyrants were doing this with Trump, even as he was saying most power to do anything about COVID was in the hands of the States.
When Trump did go and implement travel bans from certain nations and regions, like China, Italy, and others, the same Progressives blew a gasket, calling him a raaaaacist and a dictator, that it was horrible. Remember that? But, now
Accordingly, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued a mandate for all airline travelers to wear masks. It is time to think similarly about vaccinations, where the federal government’s authority is just as clear. With the Pfizer vaccine now fully approved by the Food and Drug Administration and the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines likely to follow, any remaining questions about safety and efficacy have been settled.
The CDC did overstep its authority for travel within states. For international and interstate travel for buses, trains (those 10 people who do it), and airplanes, they can sorta maybe claim authority from laws passed by Congress. And, yes, the COVID tyrants want more
Well ahead of the holiday travel season, the Biden administration should announce that United States airline travelers will be required to present proof of vaccination.
Such an airline vaccination mandate will have a few predictable effects. First, it will cause people who would otherwise fly unvaccinated to get vaccinated, so they can see their friends and family members, enjoy their vacations or do their work.
Second, it may cause others who insist on being unvaccinated to stay at home, and thereby reduce the risk to everyone else.
Third, it may reassure vaccinated folks who are hesitant to travel that it is indeed safe, which supports the airline and tourism industries.
Fourth, it will bring forth numerous lawsuits immediately, with all those people having standing to sue for vastly overstepping the authority granted by Congress and the Constitution, and for violating the Constitution. Heck, remember when Democrats, particularly NY State governor and serial sexual harasser Andrew Cuomo threatened to sue when Trump threatened to require a federal quarantine for the NY tri-state area? And when certain states, like Florida, were going to require quarantines for Democrats escaping NY? There have been numerous Supreme Court decisions showing that neither states nor the Federal government can restrict movement from one state to another. Surrender Joe can block international travel, not domestic, and requiring a vaccine would do just that, restrict domestic travel.
(Wikipedia) Freedom of movement under United States law is governed primarily by the Privileges and Immunities Clause of the United States Constitution which states, “The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States.” Since the circuit court ruling in Corfield v. Coryell, 6 Fed. Cas. 546 (1823), freedom of movement has been judicially recognized as a fundamental Constitutional right. In Paul v. Virginia, 75 U.S. 168 (1869), the Court defined freedom of movement as “right of free ingress into other States, and egress from them.
Of course, it won’t stop there
The Biden administration, other state governors and corporate leaders can also steer meetings and other travel away from states where the risk is highest. But in the short term, airports are a tangible first step, given the security apparatus already in place.
So, what next? Buses and trains? Taxis? Ubers? Carpooling? What then, if having a get-together at your house? Going to the grocery store? Where does it end?
