Extended mask mandate ‘does Biden equate to continuing beatings until morale improves’

The extension of the federal mask mandate for public transportation is based on “more COVID theatre” and is “the Biden equivalent of continuing the blows until morale improves,” the governor said on Wednesday. of Florida Ron DeSantis (R).

“Biden’s extension of the transportation mask mandate simply prolongs the misery that passengers and flight attendants are forced to endure,” the governor said in a statement following the announcement of federal officials again extending the mandate. mask requirement for public transport.

“It’s not evidence-based, just more COVID theatre,” he continued. “It’s the Biden equivalent of continuing the beatings until morale improves. I’m glad Florida and other states are fighting this mandate in court.

The scathing statement follows news of the Biden administration extending the mask mandate, requiring individuals to continue to wear masks on planes, trains, buses and other modes of public transportation. The term was set to expire on April 18, but officials opted to extend it an additional two weeks, with no immediate end in sight, as they continued to extend the deadlines throughout Biden’s presidency. This despite the fact that Biden, before taking office, offered “only” 100 days of masking, considering it everyone’s “patriotic” duty.

DeSantis has long spoken out and fought against coercive coronavirus restrictions imposed by the Biden administration, including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) vaccination mandate, which the Supreme Court struck down this year. Last month, DeSantis and Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody (R) announced a lawsuit over the Biden administration’s extended mask mandate on planes and in transportation hubs. Twenty other states also joined the lawsuit.

“This rule, this order is completely outside the limits of federal jurisdiction; as we have successfully argued in many other cases, the CDC, the federal government and the Biden administration never had the authority to issue this order originally,” Moody said at the time. .

“This needs to be lifted,” she said, adding that they “have great confidence in the court that they will agree with our legal analysis.”

The deal is Florida vs. WalenskyNo. 8: 22-cv-718 in the United States District Court for the Intermediate District of Florida.
