Ron DeSantis promises there will be no COVID vaccination mandate for children to go to school in Florida

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has vowed his state will not mandate COVID-19 vaccines for children, a day after a panel at the The CDC voted to make the vaccine officially recommended for all children six months and older.

Speaking at a press conference for Hurricane Ian relief measures, DeSantis took some time speaking to reporters on Hurricane Ian relief measures to loudly voice his position on the childhood vaccine.

“As long as I’m kicking and screaming, there will be no COVID shooting warrants for your kids,” DeSantis said. “It’s your decision to make as a parent.”

The CDC’s recommendation does not constitute a mandate for children to obtain, but opponents argue that it opens the door for them.

DeSantis — seen by many as a possible challenger to Donald Trump for the 2024 GOP presidential ticket — has been a staunch opponent of any COVID-related mandate, refusing throughout the pandemic to impose on Floridians many of the restrictive measures that have become common practice across the country.

Here's the Supreme Court Justice Who Saved Biden's Student Loan Bailout

Joe Biden’s student loan bailout remains legal, as the Supreme Court refused to block its implementation. For now, those eligible can apply to have tens of thousands of dollars in student loans forgiven. The plan was announced this summer as the Biden White House looked to address a vital issue among its base, which could double as a Hail Mary attempt to entice younger voters to vote in the upcoming midterm elections. Things took a dismal turn for the Democratic Party by Labor Day. 

Don’t get me wrong—the Democrats were always going to lose their House majority, but August brought the spending bill and the abortion hysterics that Democrats thought could bail them out of an electoral beating in November. It was a gross miscalculation, as the struggling economy and high inflation are now firmly entrenched in voters' minds.
