Psaki Calls Biden’s Vaccine Press Release “Federal Law” Before Admitting No Official Rules Exist



White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki touted President Joe Biden’s vaccine press release on Tuesday ordering companies with 100 or more employees to demand the COVID-19 hit as “federal law,” in order to minimize the efforts of Republican governors to guarantee the medical freedom of their constituents.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott on Monday signed an executive order banning COVID-19 shooting warrants by any Lone Star state entity. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has also taken action to prevent his state’s institutions from requiring “vaccine passports.”

Psaki, however, accused Republican governors of “putting politics before public health” and said they were undermining Biden’s goal of “working to get more people vaccinated.”

Her too claims that Biden’s ordinance is “federal law” that supersedes any ordinance of a state government.

“When you make a choice that goes against all public health information and data, it’s not based on what’s in the best interests of the people you govern,” she said, ignoring all the data that suggests that requiring the COVID vaccine doesn’t prevent the spread of the virus, even though President Biden falsely claimed it last week.

As The Federalist’s Joy Pullmann previously noted, “Biden’s so-called vaccine mandate doesn’t exist – at least, not yet.”

“There is no decree. There are nothing but press releases, ”Pullmann wrote last week. “Despite what you may have been misled into believing by the fantasy media projection machine, press releases have exactly no legal authority.”

Psaki later admitted that an official and binding rule from the Ministry of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration was not there, but promised it would happen. She said she could “not expect this to be finalized.”

“I would say that requiring and mandating vaccines for companies with 100 or more people is no small task. It’s a great idea for a bold proposal and something that we want to implement with as much clarity as possible, ”she said. “We know there will be questions, even after these rules are released, we understand that. But that’s why we wanted to take a little time, not too much, to do it.
