Two leading Republican lawmakers have accused the Biden White House of pressuring the airlines on vaccines mandates.
Reps. Sam Graves, top Republican on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, and Garrett Graves, senior Republican on the aviation subcommittee, wrote President Joe Biden on saying it “is unacceptable that your administration is using the threat of contractual measures as a coercion to single out American workers in a vital national industry.”
The lawmakers, who are not related, cited a Reuters story reporting that White House COVID-19 coordinator Jeff Zients had called the chief executives of American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and Southwest Airlines on Sept. 30, urging them to follow United Airlines’ lead in mandating employee vaccines.
Zients has gone on record praising airlines for mandating vaccines. “Vaccination requirements work. New data reinforces that fact each day,” he said.
Both Southwest Airlines and American Airlines have since announced they will meet the Dec. 8 deadline for federal contractors. Delta Chief Executive Ed Bastian said on Sunday that the airline has not made a decision.
The letter from the GOP Representatives noted that since March 2020, Congress had awarded US airlines a total of $54 billion in taxpayer funding for payroll costs, which only ended earlier in October.
“We strongly urge you to rethink this ill-conceived mandate which will result in the termination of employees whose jobs were saved over the last 18 months at enormous taxpayer expense,” they wrote.
“This unilateral mandate and arbitrary deadline will serve only to disrupt airline operations and increase the likelihood of canceled flights.”
Biden signed an executive order last month requiring federal contractors to mandate employee vaccines, with the White House later setting the Dec. 8 deadline.
A growing number of federal contractors are opting to comply, with IBM announcing Thursday it would mandate employee vaccines.

I pray that a company executive and the board of directors will grow a set and tell Bidumb to FO while getting their lawyers to find a follow the constitution judge to back them up.
I always thought that laws were passed by Congress not Comrade Joe with a pen signing Executive Orders against anything that he doesn’t like

It would appear there is some confusing as to whether the mandates are real or manufactured…..I am not sure what to believe…… https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/robert-spencer/2021/10/12/smoke-and-mirrors-bidens-vaccine-mandate-doesnt-actually-exist-n1523401
why did you not list my comment….conflicting data with the implied rule of law……will definitely inform colleagues and friends of your assessment of the first amendment…..
This is STILL a FREE COUNTRY, I know the DICTATOR bi den and his ENTIRE REGIME are trying to change that!!! I for one REFUSE TO ALLOW THESE IDIOTS TO MAKE AMERICA A COMMUNIST COUNTRY!!! THEY MUST BE STOPPED!!!
I don’t feel that the vaccine should be mandated at all and that people should be able to make their own choice of whether or not they get the vaccine. People would be more willing to go back to work if they were not forced into getting the vaccine to keep their job.
Biden ( Under Obamas Orders ) is not only going to Bankrupt the country, but is destroying businesses so there will be no work for Americans. I hate that not only do we have a Administration out to destroy 265 years of success , the congress ( Another branch that is elected to work for the Citizens of America) refuses to do their job, and are towing the party line. Unfortunately other that a outright revolt, the Constitution gives the people no way out for this type of destruction. The people themselves can not impeach a President , only the house and Senate and we know they no longer represent the American People, they answer to their party leaders only .
