Joe Biden, the President, promoted mandatory vaccines for business, but it was difficult to understand why so many Americans considered them a violation their rights.
Biden said, “I’ve tried everything in my power to get people vaccinated,” appearing to be frustrated that there has been such widespread pushback.

Biden On Vaccine Mandate: ‘It’s About Being Patriotic, Doing The Right Thing’
During his stop in Illinois, President Obama spoke out about vaccine mandates. The state is subject to stricter regulations than the rest of the Midwest.
In a long speech about how vaccine requirements are ‘economic stimulus,’ Biden tried to address those who oppose vaccine mandates.
Biden acknowledged that mandating the vaccine was not his “first instinct.” But the president also thought it was crucial to getting most Americans vaccinated.
“Yes. Some object,” Biden said. “And some object very strenuously, and some are making a political statement out of this issue.”

The president added, “It’s about life and death, that’s what it’s about … it’s about being patriotic, doing the right thing.”
That’s when Biden said he didn’t get the resistance and said his mandate was “nothing new.”
“I don’t quite get this, you know, why it’s a matter of, ‘No violation of your right to go to school, or get a job,’ etc., but now it’s a great cause célèbre?” Biden asked.
“Look, I know vaccination requirements are tough medicine, unpopular for some, politics for others, but they’re lifesaving, they’re game-changing for our country,” Biden said.
Biden believed that business should be the ones leading economic growth and mandating vaccines.

Biden also noted that Fox News needed vaccine mandates.
“This I always get a kick out of, Fox News,” Biden said. “Fox News requires vaccinations for all their employees.”
“Give me a break. Fox News,” Biden mocked.
