Senate Votes To Repeal Vax Mandate For Companies

The Insider reports:

Every Republican US senator and two Democratic senators — Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Jon Tester of Montana — voted Wednesday to overturn President Joe Biden’s vaccine-or-test mandate for private businesses with more than 100 employees.

Biden announced in September that OSHA would require large companies to ensure all their employees were fully vaccinated by January 4 or have them tested on a weekly basis and masked in the workplace.

Wednesday’s vote is all but certain to fail in actually reversing the policy, however, as the measure lacked veto-proof support and is unlikely to pass in the House at all.
