Press Secretary trying to defend the administration’s vaccine mandates snarkily dismissed the idea that the covid vaccine mandates have played a role in keeping people from going out to get jobs.
“I know, uh, world-renowned business, travel and health expert, Senator Ted Cruz has made that point,” Psaki said Tuesday when asked about vaccine mandates shrinking the workforce. “But, I wouldn’t say that that is widely acknowledged or echoed by business leaders who have implemented these mandates or by health experts who have conveyed the way to get out of the pandemic is to ensure we are doing exactly the steps the president has announced and we are working to implement.”
Psaki seemed to be referencing a tweet from Sen. Ted Cruz Tweet about Southwest Airlines flight cancellations this weekend.
“Joe Biden’s illegal vaccine mandate at work!” the Texas senator Ted Cruz tweeted Sunday. “Suddenly, we’re short on pilots & air traffic controllers. #ThanksJoe“
At this time it is not known the exact reasons for Southwest cancellations except for a lot of different stories and ideas.
