If you didn't hear, after Joe Biden got his last vax mandate shot down by the courts, he's doubling down with a new one – this time by requiring any truckers crossing the border:
We have about seven weeks until this trucker vaccine mandate goes into effect (if it also doesn't get shot down in flames), and if the nation's largest truck association is any indication, things are not looking good:
Oh, and if you're wondering how truckers feel about the current president, here's a picture that a relative of mine snapped the other day:
Perhaps you think that, while the American Trucking Association's members are representative of trucking as a whole, those numbers are wildly overinflated and that many truckers will give into the jab like good little citizens if our Lord and Savior Joe Biden squashes their rights long enough.
ATA CEO Chris Spear is ahead of you there:
"Now let's just take a conservative number, let's just say 3.7%, not 37%, were to actually leave rather than get the vaccine. That'd be catastrophic. We're already short 80,000, that's going to inflate to a quarter-million."
