What I find depressing about this Axios story describing the Biden administration’s hesitancy to mandate vaccination for certain groups and professions (see what I did there?) is that they seem more afraid of deluded and ignorant people who oppose vaccination than the large group of people who support it–and who disproportionately vote Democratic.
I realize attempting to appeal to people who won’t ever vote for you is incredibly on brand for New Democrats et alia, but it’s getting fucking tiresome–not to mention dangerous for the rest of us. And this might make the sane people really angry at you. Really angry.
Aside: The need to get all the legal issues squared away is understandable, but, for once, just do the fucking thing.
