Sen. Sullivan condemns Biden’s vax mandate as an ‘unconstitutional overreach’


    U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan issued a blistering attack on President Joe Biden’s plan to mandate COVID shots for 80 million Americans who have so-far declined the experimental jabs.

    Biden’s plan, revealed Sept. 9, is to impose vaccine mandates on every business that has more than 100 employees. He aims to use an emergency rule issued by the Department of Labor to achieve his plan.

    Any employee who refuses to get the COVID shot will be required to show a negative test result weekly.

    “Individual freedoms and the rule of law are too often an afterthought with this administration…”

    “This is not about freedom or personal choice,” Biden said of his mandate. “This is about protecting yourself and those around you.”

    Sullivan called Biden’s actions an “unconstitutional overreach by the President of the United States, pure and simple.”

    “Individual freedoms and the rule of law are too often an afterthought with this administration, while broken promises are piling up,” he said. Sullivan pointed out that last month, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said a vaccine mandate is “not the role of the federal government.”

    “The federal government does not have the constitutional or statutory authority to mandate vaccines on tens of millions of Americans, businesses and families,” Sullivan continued. “We all want to put this pandemic behind us for the benefit of our health, our families and our economy, but placing these outrageous mandates on individuals, employees, and American businesses, which are the backbone of our economy, is another example of federal government overreach from this administration. I am waiting to see what the administration cooks up to justify these lawless actions and meddling in private business so significantly.”

    Sullivan got vaccinated and has encouraged others to do so, but he remains firmly opposed to vaccine mandates, saying he is “adamant that this is an individual choice, and should not be mandated by the federal government.”

    1. This presidency is a disgrace!
      Give us Trump back! We were winning.. the world was respecting us..
      Now we are a laughing stock.. get rid of Joey and his ignorant lazy camel..
      Both need to be impeached for deliberate lack of action and endangering American citizens.

    2. Never forget Sullivan voted to confirm an obviously stolen election and install this Chinese Communist Puppet. Sullivan at a minimum is an accessory to Treason.

      • I happen to agree, Bert. Sullivan also voted for the 3.1 trillion dollar infrastructure bill so that Alaska can suck off the federal tit to bolster his re-election run.

      • He does seem wishy washy for a Marine (?)! Like the Turnagain arm tides. Leaders do not have to yell and scream. But firm, constant, reliable. NOT go against His Oath, when politically convenient. That is Murky’ Murkowsky and Mitt Romney. Two of the slimy muskeg, swamp critters ever.

    3. Where is the Republican Party? A message in a local newspaper isn’t worth the paper it is written on. Don Young has promoted a gene therapy with a 30% stated efficacy that makes its users super-spreaders. Where is Lisa? Sullivan is absent but left a press statement. When was the last you hears of Mitch McConnell? The Republicans have been silent as they prepare another $3 TRILLION in wasteful spending and the elimination of Americans’ freedom. Get rid of all of them
