Congresswoman Axne Backs COVID Vaccine Requirement For Federal Workers
(West Des Moines, IA) — Congresswoman Cindy Axne is supporting the president’s vaccine requirements for federal employees and contractors. Iowa’s lone Democrat in Congress says “it’s absolutely what we should do. You know, government should never shut down and government needs to be here to serve the people…same with the military.” Axne says she will defer to OSHA and CDC when it comes to requiring workers at companies with more than 100 employees to get vaccinated or tested regularly. A spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee says President Biden’s executive orders — like the ones on vaccinations — are “unconstitutional” and taking away “the rights of Hawkeye Staters.” Iowa ranks 23rd in nation with 52-point-eight percent of eligible residents fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
