Biden Wants to Give Newly Vaccinated People $100, Force Federal Workers to Get the Shot

Biden Wants to Give Newly Vaccinated People $100, Force Federal Workers to Get the Shot

The $100 stunt is the equivalent of Grandpa thinking giving you a quarter is a huge gift.

President Joe Biden wants state and local governments to give newly vaccinated people $100. He also wants to force all federal employees to get the vaccine or wear masks.

From The Wall Street Journal:

President Biden said federal employees and on-site contractors must get vaccinated against Covid-19 or wear a mask on the job and submit to regular testing, and he called on state and local governments to make $100 payments to newly vaccinated Americans.

Mr. Biden also said in a speech Thursday that he is directing the Defense Department to examine how and when Covid-19 shots could be added to the list of vaccinations required for members of the U.S. military.

“With freedom comes responsibility,” Mr. Biden said. “Your decision to be unvaccinated impacts someone else.”

The seven-day average of new cases in the U.S. approached 64,000 on July 29, up from 11,480 on June 19. Despite the administration’s monthslong push to promote the shots and encourage people to get them, the overall pace of vaccinations has slowed.

Yeah, it impacts the unvaccinated person. I have my vaccine. It doesn’t bother or concern me if you don’t have the vaccine.

Biden said: “Every federal government employee will be asked to attest to their vaccination status. Anyone who does not attest will be required to mask no matter where they work and test 1-2 times a week, socially distance, and will generally not be allowed to travel for work.”

Yes, private businesses can make you get a vaccine or wear masks. A private business can ask patrons to wear a mask or show their vaccine status.

This stat scares me: 4,000,000+ people work for the federal government. Gross.

Anyway, regarding that $100. The $100 stunt is the equivalent of Grandpa thinking giving you a quarter is a huge gift.

The Treasury Department said the $100 can come from “a $350 billion pot of money for state and local governments that was included in the stimulus package passed earlier this year.”

The department reminded officials they can use the money from the COVID “relief” bill for vaccine incentive programs.

How about this for an incentive?

It’s scary how many people seem to be way too comfortable with the concept of medical apartheid.

    Yeah, if you saw how much medication Joe Biden is taking for his dimentia it would scare you to death. The 18 wheeler Joe was talking about the other day is the one that delivers his meds to the white house.

“This stat scares me: 4,000,000,000+ people work for the federal government. Gross.”

Scares me too, since it would mean half the world works for the Feds.

    With our foreign aid they might just work for us.

    What a great time to be short on math skills.

    4 billion federal workers… good job there.

    90% of the 4,000,000,000+ are FBI informers.

    Ok I just made that up. But doesn’t it seem like the Feds are obsessed with putting as many American citizens in jail as it can? I am waiting for the day when a “white nationalist” group composed entirely of FBI informants turn each other in.

Isn’t the basis for public health policy about ….public health and not individual health? The govt has a clear interest in public health and can create policies that work to protect public health.

That said, the vax doesn’t necessarily protect public health. Why? Break through infection and asymptomatic spread from fully vaccinated individuals. The numbers are larger than we think.

The vax does a very good job of eliminating or minimizing adverse effects of an infection. The problem though is the vax doesn’t come close to preventing transmission and spread. Thus today’s mask theater announcement.

Though masks don’t really do risky squat. They are simply not effective. If the CDC had data proving a particular style and make of mask actually did prevent transmission then they would tell us which one and require it be used.

So the point here is that the vax doesn’t prevent transmission to others; the public. The precedent being relied upon was for smallpox vaccines over 115 years ago to support a mandatory vax regime.

Smallpox vaccines work, they protect the public. This one doesn’t necessarily do that. LA County has 26% fully vax in those hospitalized with Covid.

Just today the rationale used to justify the mask mandate was asymptomatic spread by the fully vaccinated. The admin admitted the vax is not sufficient to stop transmission. IMO, since they admit the vax isn’t effective in preventing transmission they have zero basis to implement a mandatory vax under claims of public health.

Especially since the FDA hasn’t granted final approval. It’s still authorized on an emergency basis. Lots of precedent from anthrax vax and DoD that states only fully approved vax can be made mandatory.

As for masks…please. No serious person believes a gas station mask is preventing covid transmission.

    “”The vax does a very good job of eliminating or minimizing adverse effects of an infection.””

    I haven’t seen any verifiable evidence to that claim. However, we do have tons of documentary evidence that the side effects of the “jabs” are far more severe in most of the population (possibly excluding the elderly, although I have my doubts there, also) than the effects of COVID. Moreover, HCQ and Ivermectin are proven to eliminate or minimize adverse reactions to COVID, without any of the major side effects of the inoculations, so if the effect of the jabs is only to alleviate symptoms, THERE IS NO JUSTIFICATION FOR THE JABS.

      The hospitalization rates of in LA County seem to indicate the efficacy of the vax in minimizing negative effects from Rona. As of mid July 74% no vax and 26% vax were in the hospital for Rona.

      Of course the lack of data as to age, infirmity, other conditions ECT leads me to believe that the d variant like all Rona is impacting the frail elderly, those with a compromised immune system, diabetics, obese and heart conditions.

      This is the same profile throughout. The refusal of the public health community to acknowledge natural immunity, much less research what level of antibodies are effective and implement widespread antibody testing to determine who does and doesn’t need the vax is flipping stupid.

      IMO we are going to hit herd immunity levels before Oct if not already. Full disclosure I had Rona, mild to moderate symptoms and treated over the counter at home. Very bad flu was my experience. No vax yet.

    “We are seriously punishing people who did the right thing to protect people who did the wrong thing.”

    Fuck your protection. I didn’t ask for it, I don’t want it, I won’t take it, and nobody ever delegated you that power in the first place.

    “zero basis to implement a mandatory vax under claims of public health.”

    You yourself point out that the vaccine is very good at reducing death rates and hospitalisations. The fact that 99.5% of deaths and hospitalisations are in the vaccination is a huge reason to vaccinate

      CommoChief in reply to mark311. | July 31, 2021 at 10:15 am

      Mark,

      You are creating a false choice. It isn’t vax v no vax. It’s vax or natural immunity or no vax. Huge difference.

      Of those hospitalized in LA County 74% no vax while 26% were vax. That’s also consistent with the new CDC data; about 75 – 80% of delta hospitalization is unvax and about 25 – 30% is vax.

      The vax is effective on an individual basis in reducing severity in an infection. It doesn’t prevent infection nor transmission.

      That was the basis for CDC mask guidance; additional layer of ‘protection’ because the vax is only 75% effective across groups.

      That’s the short term picture. Longer term if the variants are evolving to better overcome the vax the vax becomes less effective. In fact, if true, the vax is helping make Rona worse.

      We need much more complete data on natural immunity and it’s performance v new variant as well as what minimum level of antibodies are needed to be effective.

      Ignoring natural immunity, as those pushing mandates do, is a rejection of science and history. Average people understand germ theory and learned about Jenner and the smallpox/cowpox in HS.

      They have questions that are being completely ignored. Instead of doing the needed research and wide ranging studies the public health community, elites and most media prefer to stigmatize and call them names.

      IMO, putting a halt to the lectures and name calling of the unvax while doing the research to adequately answer their concerns would be far more effective in selling them on taking the vax.

    Unfortunately they actually believe
    The mask cult is strong in Austin area

I actually HAD covid and recovered, along with tens of millions of others.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not an anti-vaxxer, but somebody like me has absolutely ZERO BENEFIT from this ‘vaccine’ (gene therapy would be closer honestly).

And there is a small, but non-zero chance of a severe adverse reaction to the vaccine, and all data says that people that have HAD covid that get the vaccine are significantly more likely to suffer side effects.

So no, I am not going to get a shot that has ZERO benefit and a small chance of severe health effects. I can do risk analysis just fine, thanks, and no drooling moron President* is going to change that.

The fact that pieces of shit like Fauci want to pretend that people like me simply don’t exist is the major tell that this has absolutely NOTHING to do with ‘science’.

    Oh, have you read the CDC’s Twitter feed?
    Now they’re saying that you should get the vax even if you’ve had COVID!
    Because “no one knows how long natural immunity lasts.”
    …’n’ stuff!

    Like they know how long the artificial immunity lasts. Oh, that’s right — you may not get immunity from the vax at all. Lucy and the football, over and over again.

Where are the public workers’ unions at?!!! I know there are more than a few public workers who don’t want to wear masks or get vaccinated. Unions letting down the workers once again!

    Not every federal employee is unionized. From what I’ve seen for those who are more than one union is saying, “We’re going to negotiate this”, which I interpret as “We’re going to nail down exactly whom of our members we’ll allow to fall under this directive and the ones we won’t.”

    Olinser in reply to Guardian79. | July 30, 2021 at 1:11 am

    The fat cats in the union office are busy signaling that they need a bigger bribe before they’ll agree to force it on their union members.

$100? I pay more than that every week in taxes. Stuff it biden*.

My grandfather sent me $2.00 every birthday from the time I was born until I was in my twenties or thirties when he died. Seriously, the cards meant more to me than the two bucks. I miss him.

If I get 5 vaccinations I can afford the Glock 19 I want for Christmas. And with another 5 vaccinations I can get a lot of ammo.

    “And with another 5 vaccinations I can get a lot of ammo.”

    Well, no. At current prices you can get enough for a couple trips to the range, if you keep them short.

Money? Spend it!
Vaccine? Push it!
Border? Open it!
Gun? Ban it!
Pipeline? Cancel it!
White? Oppress it!
Tax? Raise it!
Cute? Sniff it!

All in a day’s work for Joe Biden, the quintessential rule-based Democrat “finite state AI.”

No, stupid pedophile, I will not sell my health and well-being for $100. Let’s just leaving the body selling to your vice-whore Harris.

I’m curious how the government would respond if non-Leftists adopted the shemagh as a mask|face covering. It meets the letter of the mandatory mask law, could be seen as a sign of support for troops serving in the Middle East etc, is a giant screw you to the government, and efforts to ban it would run into accusations of racism.

Note I’m not thinking of the turban component or style, merely the scarf or face covering aspect.

Thoughts?

The $100 is to blunt the reality that has now been proven:

https://theconservativetreehouse.com/blog/2021/07/29/report-cdc-expected-to-announce-tomorrow-that-covid-vaccines-dont-work-on-delta-variant-hence-white-house-credits-trump-with-vaccine-today/#more-214698

So the logic truly is “Wear the masks because the vaccines don’t work and get the vaccine because the masks don’t work.”

And naturally, they will blame Trump.

If you substitute Jew for unvaccinated doesn’t all the talk from progressives sound like Nazi Germany? Oh that’s right, Hitler was a progressive.
