Republican states said they were reviewing all legal avenues after President Joe Biden unveiled strict requirements for private sector companies to mandate COVID-19 vaccines for employees.
Several state attorneys general quickly condemned the president’s actions Thursday and warned they would take the Biden administration to court to defend individual liberties. Arizona, Montana, Indiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Georgia and South Carolina were all among the states that threatened legal action in response to the White House announcement.
“President Biden is now taking federal overreach to unheard of levels by dictating vaccine mandates for all private companies with over 100 people, federal contractors, and healthcare providers receiving federal dollars,” Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said in a statement shared with the Daily Caller News Foundation.
“I am reviewing his outrageous actions and will take all legal recourse to defend our state’s sovereignty and the rights of Arizonans to make the best healthcare decisions for themselves,” he continued.
On Thursday, Biden unveiled a series of steps that the federal government will take to increase the rate of coronavirus vaccinations nationwide. The president authorized the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to develop a rule mandating “all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforce is fully vaccinated or require any workers who remain unvaccinated to produce a negative test result on at least a weekly basis,” according to his announcement.
My legal team is standing by ready to file our lawsuit the minute @joebiden files his unconstitutional rule. This gross example of federal intrusion will not stand.

Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen, who like Brnovich has already filed multiple lawsuits against the Biden administration, is also reviewing legal options.
“Attorney General Knudsen will be exploring all possible legal avenues to protect businesses and hard-working Montanans from this lawless mandate which infringes on our rights,” spokesperson Emilee Cantrell told the DCNF in a statement.
Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr and Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge both tweeted that they were prepared to defend residents in their states. Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita likened Biden’s actions to those of “dictators in a banana republic.”
“Biden’s historic overreach on vaccine mandates will not stand in Missouri,” Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt tweeted. “We’re at a crossroads in America — who we are and what we’re going to be. We must fight back.”
In addition, several governors including South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem and Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt also vowed to defend their states from Biden’s alleged overreach.
“(Biden) see you in court,” Noem tweeted shortly after the president’s remarks.

If you think our fearless leaders stae and local are comic-book evil you ain’t seen nothing yet – right outta 007 welcome to our Brave New and send them to prison for crimes against humanity Kafkaesque world:
Former Pfizer VP, research scientist, vaccine developer and medical entrepreneur Michael Yeadon warns of vaccine holocaust all ‘vaxxed’ are bluetoothed via electrically charged chemicals (graphene oxide) which will be used for remote mass control of the population that survive the holocaust.
Waxing ever more desperate as evidenced by fist-pounding Pedo Joe threatening a nation as the perps have done the math and truly terrified of the worldwide outpouring of patriot resistance with Australians locked in their homes. And now know there are enough of us to fight back and invoke Nuremberg 2.0 which must be what’s keeping shiny boot club and DemocratMarxist rage-machine up at night given the unprecedented propaganda.
I will watch with interest to see how your RINO governor plays this out. But then again VT has a pretty high vaccination rate. This is clearly in violation of the Constitution, and with a survival rate of greater than 98% you should be asking yourself what is the real reason for the government to try and force everyone to get vaccinated.
Maybe while they have applesauce brain in court for his dictatter wanna be mandates they can bring in a new judge for a 2nd hearing on his war criminal execution of aid workers and children (he called a strike on isis k) who were just bringing water to the people waiting to get in the airport..
He thought that would negate his bloody hands in the bombing on our troops who shouldn’t have been put back in harms way…
Sadly here in VT, our Rino Governor is cheering on Biden’s mandates and instituting some of his own.
Interesting interview of a nurse……
You can be a minority and stand up for the truth. Those who side for truth will become the majority, but only if they are willing to stand up.
