(TheIndependentStar.com) – Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) has not been shy about going after the Biden administration for its decisions during the COVID-19 pandemic. He’s now standing up to the president once again over the proposed Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations regarding mandatory vaccines for workers.
During a November 4 WPTV news conference, Governor DeSantis said he thinks the Biden vaccine mandate is “going down.” He explained the law has no constitutional basis and vowed that Florida will stand up against it.

DeSantis said this is just another overreach by the White House and an abuse of power. The governor spoke about how the president claims this is an emergency situation, but the administration took six weeks to write the mandate, which won’t even go into effect until January. He said it is more like a move to bypass Congress and push an agenda.
DeSantis values personal medical freedom for all citizens. He said it is unfair to make people choose between generating an income and getting a vaccination they do not want.
The governor announced the state will join other states in a lawsuit against the Biden administration over the vaccine mandate upon its publication. DeSantis said President Biden is too at ease with misusing his power, and it is time to hold him accountable before he continues on this path.
