Once again, the United States Congress is miraculously exempt from a controversial policy that’s been forced upon the American people and private businesses.
Joe Biden’s vaccine order mandating COVID-19 vaccines for all federal workers does NOT apply to members of Congress, the federal court system, or their staffers.
Meanwhile, Biden’s order for federal workers and contractors drops the option of regular testing and allows only some religious and disability exemptions.
Someone really needs to have a chat with Grandpa Joe about “optics” in politics. Giving a Democrat-controlled Congress a pass on something this controversial? Not a good look.
Speaking of bad looks:

Yeah, we know. Biden denies this photo was legit. We knew it was fake the moment we saw it. No parent in their right mind would allow their child near Joe Biden. Who knows what could happen?
Biden: “Shut up, kid. Do you know what happens to little boys who run their mouths? They find themselves in a windowless van with an associate of Hillary Clinton.”
In April, House Speaker and connoisseur of $10 per quart ice cream, Nancy Pelosi, said Congress couldn’t mandate the vaccine among members and that it was a “matter of privacy.”
Pelosi: “So here’s the thing: We cannot require someone to be vaccinated. That’s just not what we can do, it is a matter of privacy to know who is or who isn’t. I can’t go to the Capitol physician and say, ‘Give me the names of people who aren’t vaccinated so I can go encourage them to,’ or make it known to others to encourage them to be vaccinated.”
So we can require private businesses, federal contractors, and federal workers to adhere to Biden’s orders on the vaccine, but Congress gets a pass. Hey, remember when they did the same thing with Obamacare?
