GOP Rep. Exposes Biden’s Bluff on Vax Safety w/ Federal Compensation Law

'If the vaccine is completely safe, why is Biden planning to compensate government workers who are injured as a result of his vaccine mandate?'

Despite the Biden administration’s assurances that there was no cause for concern related to controversial vaccine mandates, Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky. recently pointed out that the government plans to compensate any employees who are negatively impacted by the vaccine.

The revelation came via a bulletin from the Labor Department’s Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs concerning the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act.

The bulletin’s stated intent was “to provide guidance on coverage for claims for injury on or after September 9, 2021, resulting from receipt of the mandated COVID-19 vaccination for Federal employees.”

It was sent out on Oct. 1, following Biden’s vaccine mandate for the majority of federal employees.

It is not clear from the bulletin whether government employees are entitled to compensation if they have adverse reactions to other vaccines that may be required.

The rules are unlikely to apply to private-sector workers who have used Biden’s mandate for public sectors and bogus claims of an executive order as the justification for imposing their own mandates.

But some Twitter users reacting to Massie’s post cited the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program, which offers benefits for those who react poorly to selected vaccines.

Massie brought this discrepancy to light in the midst of tense discussions surrounding vaccination mandates in multiple industries.

Hospitals, airlines, sports franchises, schools and entertainment venues have been experiencing walkouts, protests and cancellations in the wake of the mandates.

The results of this backlash have caused hundreds of flight cancellations and even the closing of hospital wings due to lack of staff.

The Biden administration has not responded to either of Massie’s cogent questions.
