GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) – Governor Henry McMaster responded Thursday after President Joe Biden announced that employers with more than 100 workers are required to be vaccinated or tested for COVID-19 each week.
“The American Dream has turned into a nightmare under President Biden and the radical Democrats,” said McMaster. “They have declared war against capitalism, thumbed their noses at the Constitution and empowered our enemies abroad. Rest assured, we will fight them to the gates of hell to protect the liberty and livelihood of every South Carolinian.”
The move by Biden will affect about 80 million Americans.
The Republican National Convention also released a statement after Biden’s announcement, saying his speech was an unconstitutional, un-American federal overreach.
“Joe Biden promised to shut down the virus – he failed. Biden promised he would not force mandates on Americans – he lied. Biden is forcing an unconstitutional, un-American federal decree on businesses and families. His agenda is all about power, all about control, and meant to divide us.”
Later, the RNC released another statement saying they plan to sue the Biden administration on their unconstitutional mandate:
“Joe Biden told Americans when he was elected that he would not impose vaccine mandates. He lied. Now small businesses, workers, and families across the country will pay the price. Like many Americans, I am pro-vaccine and anti-mandate. Many small businesses and workers do not have the money or legal resources to fight Biden’s unconstitutional actions and authoritarian decrees, but when his decree goes into effect, the RNC will sue the administration to protect Americans and their liberties.”
