Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) criticized Joe Biden’s federal vaccine mandate and vowed to fight against it. DeSantis attended a veteran event on Friday, where he called Biden out for issuing unconstitutional edicts against Americans and suggested millions would lose their jobs.
DeSantis went on to say, “I think we should be protecting people’s jobs, not trying to kick people out of work right now.”
The governor also criticized Biden for failing to take responsibility for his actions.
“Clearly, we have a president acting outside the bounds of the Constitution and the state of Florida,” he asserted. “Me as governor, I’m going to have the legislature involved as well.”
I know there’s virtually no chance Biden runs for re-election, but would love nothing more than to see how badly Biden would struggle if he had to debate DeSantis and defend his failed policies. pic.twitter.com/5XBsBBVSGd

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody said she was also prepared to take action against the mandate.
