An Open Letter to President Biden

All four members of the New House Republican Caucus (along with other state legislators) have signed the following letter to President Biden regarding vaccine mandates.

President Joseph Biden,

On December 4th, 2020 you were asked in front of America on national television, “do you want vaccines to be mandatory?” You responded, “No, I don’t think it should be mandatory. I wouldn’t demand it be mandatory…”

An Open Letter to the Mayo Clinic

A week ago on October 29th, Rep. Steve Drazkowksi sent this letter to the Rochester Post-Bulletin. It wasn't published.  Today 11/4/2021, the Biden Administration released their OSHA regulations for employers with over 100 employees and their rules for Health Care settings.  By January 4th all employers over 100 will have to implement these rules including requiring employees to provide vaccine status to their employer and be vaccinated or submit to regular testing unless they work from home. Health Care employers have only 14 days to comply with their rules which do not include the option to test regularly for COVID instead of getting vaccinated. 

In the last few weeks, I have spoken to dozens of Mayo Clinic employees who are on the brink of losing their jobs. Why are they in this predicament? Because the leaders of Mayo Clinic are mandating that every one of their employees get vaccinated against COVID-19. If any employee refuses vaccination, they will be fired.

Under the Mayo Clinic vaccine mandate, employees who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will be placed on unpaid leave on December 1st. All employees who are still not vaccinated by January 1, 2022 will be terminated.

Pushing back on Biden and Walz's vaccine mandates

Both the Federal Government and the State have been doing everything they can to coerce people who do not want to get the COVID 19 Vaccine, for whatever reason, to get it.  Minnesota Law forbids forced vaccination or medical treatment by the government, but the same statute shows that they can still make you pay the consequences of not being vaccinated by being forced to quarantine.  And so, for this pandemic, they have invented different ways to make people pay.

Enter the Feds

On September 9, President Biden announced the implementation of a federal vaccine mandate. This mandate will require any businesses with more than 100 employees to force their employees to get vaccinated or submit to weekly testing.
As a result, roughly 100 million Americans will be required to get vaccinated or lose their job. Roughly 17 million workers in healthcare facilities that receive Medicaid or Medicare funding will be forced to get the vaccine or face weekly testing. There will also be a requirement for Executive branch employees, and all federal contractors with NO option to test out. If you refuse? A $14,000 fine per violation. This action is just another example of the draconian federal overreach we have seen from the Biden administration.

Never Again

In times of war, disease, or other extraordinary conditions, every state authorizes its Governor to declare a state of emergency. Once an emergency has been declared, special executive powers are granted to the Governor until the emergency ends.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the chapter of Minnesota law that governs these emergency powers – Chapter 12 – was put to the test. We have experienced over a year of unchecked, absolute power by our Governor. The power granted to the Governor through Chapter 12 completely usurps the power of the legislature, resulting in one-man rule.
