Dr. Anthony Fauci suggested on Friday that President Biden’s sweeping new vaccine mandate for private businesses is a “moderate” measure. Critics are calling it unconstitutional and strategically ill-advised.

During an appearance on CNN, Fauci argued that “the president is being somewhat moderate in his demand, if you want to call it that. There are some people who really don’t want to get vaccinated but they really don’t want to lose their job. You’ve got to give them an off lane. And the off-lane is that if you get tested frequently enough and find out you’re positive you won’t come to work and you won’t infect other people.”

While Fauci believes Biden’s edict to be reasonable, over a dozen Republican governors have condemned it as an egregious attack on individual liberty, vowing to defy and fight it in court.

There were also prudential — though not legal — objections to Biden’s imposition of vaccine requirements for federal workers, who had previously been able to submit to weekly testing before Thursday’s announcement, but now will be allowed no such alternative to getting the vaccine.
