If Kamala Harris Believes What She Says, She Just Came Out Against Biden's Vaccine Mandate

President Joe Biden has imposed a sweeping vaccine mandate, but one of the most cogent arguments against it has come from an unlikely source: Vice President Kamala Harris.
As part of the presidents ongoing COVID-19 response, Biden announced Thursday that the vaccine will soon be mandatory for workers at private-sector companies with at least 100 employees a provision that experts estimate impacts some 80 million Americans.
Republicans and other freedom-loving people across the nation immediately erupted in outrage at such a government overreach, angry that this edict was imposed without regard to Americans constitutional rights to bodily autonomy.
And yet it was the vice presidents words from an appearance earlier that same day that made the case for allowing people to make medical decisions for themselves as the only way to preserve our democracy.
When people are able to design their lives in a way that they can determine their own futures, we are a stronger democracy and we are a stronger nation, Harris said.
When people are able to make choices without government interference for themselves in terms of their well-being and the well-being of their family, in consultation with whomever they may choose we are a stronger society, she asserted.
