Florida Files Lawsuit Against Biden Admin Over Vaccine Mandate for Federal Contractors

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has announced that his state is suing the Biden administration over their vaccine mandate for federal contractors.

The administration has issued an order requiring federal contractors to be vaccinated by Dec. 8.

The lawsuit was filed by Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody and seeks an injunction barring the mandate from going into effect.

Named in the lawsuit are the Biden administration, NASA, NASA administrator and former Florida Sen. Bill Nelson, The Office of Management and Budget (OMB), The Office of Commercial and Economic Analysis (OCEA) and the General Services Administration (GSA).

DeSantis announced the lawsuit during a press conference on Thursday.

“We also cannot have the federal government coming in exceeding their power,” DeSantis said at a press conference. “Some of the stuff that they’re doing with it … rewriting contracts and they’re transforming normal contracting into basically public health policy, and that’s not anything Congress has ever authorized and so that’s a huge problem.”

“We do have a responsibility to stand up for our authority here to govern ourselves, and also make sure that this constitutional system of ours isn’t out of whack,” DeSantis said.

“The main course of business will be: Make sure people are able to keep their jobs. We are not going to deny people the ability to earn a living based on their decisions about an injection,” DeSantis said. “These people have been working the whole doggone time, and then now all of a sudden they’re going to get kicked to the curb? Give me a break.”

DeSantis has called for legislation to protect Floridian workers when legislators hold a special session in November.

    An energy beamed flowed through me when I watched that video of Ron DeSantis. I harnessed it and will now go expel it at the gym. Today is a good day to be a Florida Man, no matter what the outcome. Who is John Galt?

    Love this guy. I’m hoping to turn Virginia around from it’s currently bastardized state but Florida looking SO good. DeSantis2024 might be the only run that could Give Trump2024 trouble. Trump/DeSantis ticket may simultaneously cause half the country to spontaneously combust and the other half to ascend to a higher plane of being. I’m down for it.
