President Joe Biden and the Democratic Party seem so heavily invested in Americans taking the COVID-19 vaccine that they are willing to issue threats to those who won’t take it.
On Monday, Biden had a warning for those who wouldn’t take the vaccine for whatever reason: “Those who are not vaccinated will end up paying the price.” Watch:
This isn’t the first time that members of the Harris/Biden administration have issued cryptic warnings to the American people over taking the COVID-19 vaccine.
President Biden implied that the federal government had the authority to issue mask mandates, even though numerous states have never issued them or have withdrawn them.
The rule is now simple: get vaccinated or wear a mask until you do.
The choice is yours.

Even Hillary Clinton joined in on the forced mask mandate/vaccination messaging.
It's pretty simple:
Get vaccinated. Get your life back.https://t.co/rAGfELbV9Q

The Centers for Disease Control recently stated new guidance that Americans who are vaccinated do not need to wear masks around other vaccinated people. But the truth of it is that the CDC is not composed of elected officials, has zero governmental authority, and has not even been consistent on its own guidelines.
If Americans want to wear a mask, they can. If they want to get vaccinated, they can. But if they want to do neither, unless there is a state law in place that is passed through the legislature, there should be no legal recourse for refusing to do so.
That Biden officials are pretending to have legal authority that they do not possess is creepy and authoritarian. Enough is enough for this blatant usurpation of governmental authority done in the name of supposedly fighting a pandemic.
