When it served their goal of damaging President Trump, Democrat governors stuffed as many covid positive patients into nursing homes as
humanly inhumanely as possible. Their only goal was to achieve an atrociously high death count in an effort to sully Donald Trump’s handling of the Wuhan virus.
Now that there’s an agenda to enforce and with the power to do it, Democrats suddenly care deeply about nursing home residents and are demanding that those who staff the facilities put their own health concerns aside for the alleged greater good of their patients.
In their latest coercion effort, the Biden administration announced that they will require all nursing home staff to be vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition for those facilities to continue receiving federal Medicare and Medicaid funding.
The AP reports that Biden unveiled the new policy Wednesday afternoon in a White House address as the administration continues to look for ways to use mandates to encourage vaccine holdouts to get shots.
The new mandate, in the form of a forthcoming regulation to be issued by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, could take effect as soon as next month.
Hundreds of thousands of nursing home workers are not vaccinated, according to federal data, despite those facilities bearing the brunt of the early COVID-19 outbreak and their workers being among the first in the country to be eligible for shots.
Since late July, the Biden administration has forced millions of federal workers to verify their vaccination status or face burdensome new requirements. His iron-fisted edicts have called for even harsher requirements for federal workers in frontline health roles, and his administration is intent on mandating vaccines for all military personnel as soon as next month.
“If you work in a nursing home and serve people on Medicare or Medicaid, you will also be required to be vaccinated…studies show that highly vaccinated nursing home staff is associated with at least 30% less covid19 cases among long-term care residents. With this announcement, I’m using the power of the federal government as a payer of healthcare costs, to ensure we reduce those risks to our most vulnerable seniors.”

Our government is run by power-hungry tyrants. They tax Americans by taking the first fruits of their labor, then use the confiscated funds to control people, schools, and businesses against their will by threatening to deny those funds from being used the way they were appropriated.
There’s always a price tag, always some condition that must be met. Don’t go along with the extreme leftist agenda, you’re cut off. Don’t want to get injected with a rushed-to-market “vaccine” whose creators are insulated from any and all adverse liability, you’ll soon be denied the right to work, dine out, attend concerts, go bowling, et al.
It’s already happening in left-wing hell holes run by tyrannical leftists:
