Is the United States headed for a constitutional showdown between President Joe Biden and numerous Republican governors?
It certainly seems that way given the stated intent of Biden (watch the video below) to override orders many governors have issued when it comes to masks and vaccines.
According to Biden:
“Let me blunt, my plan also takes on elected officials in states that are undermining you in these life-saving actions. Right now, local school officials are trying to keep children safe in a pandemic while their governor picks a fight with them and even threatens their salaries or jobs. Talk about bullying in schools. If they’ll not help, these governors will not help us beat the pandemic. I’ll use my power as president and get them out of the way. The Department of Education has already begun to take legal action against states undermining protection that local school officials have ordered. Any teacher or school official whose pay is withheld for doing the right thing, we will have that pay restored by the federal government one hundred percent. I promise you, I will have your back.”
Watch the video of Biden below, and then share your opinion about his statements by emailing [email protected]. Thank you and have a good weekend.
