US Congresswoman Introduces Bill Supporting Mandatory Vaccines for Employees

Wiki

US Congresswoman, Virginia Foxx, is introducing legislation that would override the present law that prohibits employers from forcing employees to accept vaccines. This is seen as a first step in a larger plan that, not only will allow employers to do this, but will require them to do so. –GEG

A new bill, H.R. 1313, moving through Congress would allow companies to require employees to undergo genetic testing and enroll in a mandatory vaccine program or risk losing their job. Today, laws including the 2008 Genetic Privacy and Nondiscrimination Act (known as GINA) prohibits giving employers such power over their employees.

If we let Republican Congresswoman Virginia Foxx, who introduced this new legislation, have her way, employees will be stripped of all their privacy rights. Furthermore, H.R. 1313, also called the “Preserving Employee Wellness Programs Act,” will give power to employers to hire or fire people based on the provided health information.

The new bill sneakily gets around previous bills that protect your privacy through explicitly stating that GINA and other privacy protection programs such as the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act do not apply when genetic tests or vaccines are part of a “workplace wellness” program.

“What this bill would do is completely take away the protections of existing laws,” Jennifer Mathis, director of policy and legal advocacy at the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law, a civil rights group, recently said in a congressional testimony.

According to an employer group, employers need these changes because those two landmark laws are “not aligned in a consistent manner” with workplace wellness programs which were created during the Obama administration. Though these programs are “voluntary,” people who do not participate must pay thousands of dollars more in premiums and deductibles. If the new H.R. 1313 bill passes, employees who do not voluntarily enroll in these programs could face being fired too.

Courts have held vaccines, an uninsurable risk, to be “unavoidably unsafe. Tell the Prez and your congress critters here: No Forced Vax – http://tinyurl.com/vaccinepolicy

There is a little known reason for the push on vaccines: they form an important part for their agenda to give every global citizen a Digital Financial Identity. In their words: to access ‘services’ like food and clean water. This United Nations project goes by the name of ID2020, and it involves bankers, corporations like Johnson & Johnson, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and many more. Vaccines are to form the ‘Entry Point’ to a Digital Financial Identity for everyone.

In 1986 the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was established by Congress because the drug manufacturers threatened to stop manufacturing vaccines if they were not granted legal immunity from damages due to vaccines. It was no longer profitable for them to continue manufacturing vaccines in a free market, because of the large amount of lawsuits for injuries and deaths due to vaccines. So instead of requiring the drug companies to produce safer vaccines, Congress granted them total immunity from civil litigation due to injuries or deaths resulting from vaccines. Claims to the “Vaccine Court” were first filed in 1989. [Since… Read more »
