Biden Admin Has Discussed Mandating Vaccines for Interstate Travel

The Biden administration has discussed requiring Americans to get a vaccine passport for interstate travel, according to a new report.

The administration is reportedly looking for ways to make life more “uncomfortable” for those who do not comply.

The Associated Press reports, “while more severe measures — such as mandating vaccines for interstate travel or changing how the federal government reimburses treatment for those who are unvaccinated and become ill with COVID-19 — have been discussed, the administration worried that they would be too polarizing at this time. An administration official said the interstate travel vaccination requirement was not under consideration at the moment.”

“That’s not to say they won’t be implemented in the future, as public opinion continues to shift toward requiring vaccinations as a means to restore normalcy,” the report adds.

The report said that the White House is currently in the midst of a “precarious balancing act as Biden works to make life more uncomfortable for the unvaccinated without spurring a backlash in a deeply polarized country that would only undermine his public health goals.”

An interstate vaccine passport even being discussed has sparked fierce backlash from prominent conservatives.

“While Biden is considering mandating vaccines for interstate travel, he is allowing a record number of illegal migrants to cross our southern border—many of whom test positive for COVID. This double standard is dangerous & must be stopped,” Texas Governor Greg Abbott tweeted.

Sen. Tom Cotton also weighed in, saying “Biden’s plan: Limits on interstate travel for Americans. Open borders for illegal immigrants.”

The Blaze reports that “Ben Wakana, the deputy director of strategic communications and engagement for the White House COVID-19 response, said vaccine mandates are ‘the right lever at the right time.'”

Lawrence Gostin, a professor of health law at Georgetown University, told the AP that Biden will need to continue putting pressure on people who have declined the vaccines.

“He’s really going to have to use all the leverage the federal government has, and indeed use pressure points,” Gostin said. “And I think there are a few that he can do but he hasn’t done yet.”

“The country is completely fatigued with lockdowns, business closures and masking,” added Gostin, “and vaccines are literally our only tool. We’ve tried masking, distancing, occupancy limits, even entire lockdowns now for coming along nearly two years. And the virus just keeps raging back. And the vaccines are the only thing we have now to defeat the virus. We need to use that tool and we need to use it vigorously. And I think there will be large public support for that.”

    Wife and I own a business and just refused doing work at 2 of the big universities here in Michigan after they recently passed vacc and mask mandates for ALL students then tried to push that shit on us as vendors. We were open and honest and said we’d mask while going through the check in process, but the momnent we start our work would be removing the masks and sectioning off the areas we would be working in as wearing a mask while attempting to perform our work (which can get pretty physical) was our choice and NO an option or healthy for that matter. Passed on both jobs and re-prioritized doing work for customers that also won’t be cowed into this nonsense. When the university admin got their panties in a wad my exact statements to both were… “Being someone else’s little subservient bitch may be your style but let’s get one thing straight it’s NOT ours. The only reason you cowards are adopting these policies is because a bunch you clowns allowed yourselves to become beholden to a bunch of whack job leftist politicians who hold your purse strings”. One was a phone call and the reply was…………. Well, crickets. The other one was an e-mail and they contacted us again this morning begging us to reconsider but were not willing to bend their bs rules. If WE don’t take a stand these commie clowns are going to steam roll us all. As for the vacc… Damn thing doesn’t work and the number of people we know that have been hospitalized after getting it is now in the triple digits. Our family doctor….. “Check your vitamin C and vitamin D levels, supplement if low, add zinc if you haven’t already and take turmeric or quercetin to help drive the zinc into your cells. Not had the flu in nearly 20 years (last time I got the flu was immediately after getting a flu shot) and almost 2 years in, little to no masking and after being exposed to covid multiple times not even had a sniffle and had a negative antigen test.

    They are banking on most americans being too distracted to stand up to them. My 22 year old daughter and 50 year old wife ask me what are we supposed to do? I said stand your ground and when push comes to shove be the one to grab a bat and end it early.

    “That’s not to say they won’t be implemented in the future, as public opinion continues to shift toward requiring vaccinations as a means to restore normalcy,” I would hope that public opinion looks at the facts that this is carried by animals in the wild and will continue to mutate like our yearly flu virus. And that a vaccination for you protects you. It protects no one but you. if you had 100 percent of americans vaccinated as soon as those immigrants come over the border it’ll spread again. I want research into if this vaccine is aiding the virus in mutation.

    CorpDems like Bumbles Biden are political rapists that deserve absolutely no respect, obedience, or consideration. They’re earning every ounce of the Hell that they will soon reap, times ten thousand, for being the Totalitarian human cancer that they are.

  6. According to Article IV, Section II, Clause I of the Constitution…
    “The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States.”
    That’s only if the Constitution still has any weight behind it, of course.

    I will never forget the look on Dr Wen’s face when she called for making it hard to be unvaccinated. Yeah, a bonafide baby killer doesn’t scare me, she makes me wretch. Since the vaccines contain cells from aborted baby tissue, no wonder she wants us to just comply, she’s got a fortune to make, chop chop.

    The radical left have exposed themselves, they are doubling down. They now know its now or never. They are pushing for full on communism.

    If you want a hot civil war, banning travel for half the people of the country with internal checkpoints is begging for a hot civil war.
