Ron DeSantis Stands Against CMS Mandate: ‘What They’re Trying to Do Is Insane’

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said on Thursday that the Biden administration’s Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) vaccine mandate is utterly “insane,” reiterating that it defies logic by failing to recognize the reality of natural immunity.

“If you believe that the Constitution — like the founding fathers believed — that the Constitution is one of limited and enumerated powers, you cannot authorize the federal government acting … like a state police power,” he said, explaining that the vaccine mandates are designed to end run around the Constitutional structure.

“So, we need the Supreme Court to come through and rule properly on that, and it’s not just the OSHA mandate, and you will have problems in other states that didn’t provide protections like Florida did,” he said prior to the ruling.

“The medical mandate for the nurses and the doctors … what they’re trying to do is absolutely insane,” he continued, explaining that Florida has provided protections for healthcare workers.

“So, nurses were rehired. All these people, many of them have natural immunity … but there’s a crunch on the staffing because you have obviously a lot more COVID nationwide and then you have staff that get out sick with it,” he continued, further explaining the absurdity of the rule.

“In other states, they have fired nurses for not having vaxed even though most of them have immunity. So, they fire them but now, they’re short-handed. So what are they doing? They are bringing back on the job vaccinated nurses who are currently COVID-positive,” he said.

“So, if you’re unvaccinated, naturally immune, and uninfected, you’re — they fire you, but if you’re COVID-positive and vaxed, which we know most of the people that are COVID-positive now are vaxed, they are going back on the job,” he marveled.

DeSantis said the rule shows that the CMS mandate is “absolutely insane, especially given the ineffectiveness, you know, of these shots to actually stop transmission between individuals.”

“And so, I’m hoping that they will get real on this,” he added.

While the Supreme Court struck down the OSHA mandate 6-3, affecting over 84 million workers, it upheld the CMS mandate 5-4, though they did acknowledge that the CMS mandate exempts healthcare employees who object to the vaccine for religious or medical reasons.

The applications are NFIB v. OSHA, No. 21A244 at the Supreme Court of the United States, and Biden v. Missouri, No. 21A240 at the Supreme Court of the United States.

ABC’s Hostin: Republicans Are Treating Biden Like a Black President

ABC legal analyst Sunny Hostin said Thursday on ABC’s “The View” that Republicans treated President Joe Biden like a black president.

Hostin said, “There are things that he has not gotten credit for, like he’s inherited this pandemic from the Trump administration. It was badly handled. He was able to pass a 1.9 trillion dollar relief package which a majority of Republicans voted against. That’s something that he gets credit for. I think he also gets credit for his incredibly diverse judicial nominations. I think there has been about 41 federal judges. Those are lifetime appointments.”

She continued, “I think where he hasn’t done well is basically delivering federal policy in favor of the people who put him in the White House, and that is communities of color. We didn’t see any movement on voting rights. We didn’t see any movement in police reform.”

Hostin added, “The infrastructure was a leaning-into white independence, and I think it was a leaning into white moderates, but the bottom line is, those aren’t the folks who really took him over the finish line. That is not the Democratic base. No Democratic president has made it into the White House without the support of the black community. The black community now, voters 50 and over that are registered, there’s been a 36-point drop in the net approval. What I took away was he said something like I had no idea that my Republican friends would do this. Well, he’s governing like it’s the 1990s. It’s 2022. He sat for eight years next to a black president yet didn’t think he would be treated like one, and that is what he is being treated like.”

Behar: ‘Dense’ Biden Thought Other White Privileged Senators Would Work with Him

Joy Behar told her co-hosts Thursday on ABC’s “The View” that President Joe Biden was “dense” for thinking his fellow “white privileged” senators would work with him.

Whoopi Goldberg said, “Part of the problem for Joe is none of us, none of us ever anticipated we would be sitting in front of senators and congresspeople who are denying the fact that someone won an election. I never saw that before. I don’t think it occurred to him that would ever be Republicans who would go that far to say this was a lie. I think a lot of this, he thought, you know, we’ll beat each other up as we have in the past. This is a whole new group.”

Behar said, “But, Whoopi n the ’90s Newt Gingrich, had a contract on America.”

Ana Navarro said, “With America.”

Behar shot back, “I like to say it was on America. Then you have Mitch McConnell say that his whole idea going forward with Obama was to make sure he was a one-term president. Then he said about Biden, we’re going to obstruct, and we’re not going to let him do anything he wants to do. So I mean, how dense was Biden really in these instances? You’re a white privilege senator in the United States Congress, so you believe other white privilege guys will work with you, but they won’t, and they don’t.”
