Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) today questioned the legal authority of the Biden
Administration to mandate vaccines or weekly testing for all employers with
over 100 employees. Under the proposal, businesses that fail to enforce this
mandate would be subject to a $14,000 per-violation fine.
“Choosing the vaccine is the right choice for most of
America. My family and I received the vaccine, and I encourage everyone
medically able to make that same decision. Private businesses have the legal
authority to impose vaccine mandates on their customers and or employees if
they see fit. But federal government mandates, of dubious legality, will
further alienate the skeptical, undermine our institutions, and punish ordinary
business owners and their employees,” said Senator Toomey.
