Biden Hopes You Forget About His Vaccine-Mandate Debacle

  • On the menu today: One of the angriest and most divisive issues of 2021 and 2022 — federal vaccine mandates — ends this month not with a bang, but with a whimper.
  • Covid really is distant in the rear-view mirror for the overwhelming majority of Americans, so much so that the end of these federal mandates is receiving only cursory coverage in a busy news cycle.
  • “Pro-vaccine, but anti-vaccine-mandate” was always the right position, and the fact that President Biden and his team are quietly slinking away from one of the biggest and most consequential initiatives of his first two years in office is a signal that they hope everyone forgets about their contentious effort to get Americans fired from their jobs for refusing to get vaccinated.
