CNBC’s Wild Jim Cramer Demands Biden Order Nationwide Vax Mandate in EPIC Rant

44


Ordering people to inject something into their bodies is tricky stuff in America. In fact, the people involved in this website have real concerns about such a policy. It pushes the line on the Constitution and it pushes the line as to just what is fair. It was deemed Constitutional by the Supreme Court in 1904 when the SCOTUS upheld a mandatory vaccination by adults against smallpox.

Of course, vaccines were a bit newer and glamourous back then. Additionally, healthcare had not been held responsible for some major mistakes, thalidomide, smoking as good for you, silicon, etc. Times change.

But right now, such a mandate, if one sets aside the legal concerns, it sure makes sense from a public health and economic point of view.

James Cramer is looking at things from legal concerns, too – as well as economic view, as well as public health tucked in there somewhere. And he went off today on the need for mandatory vaccinations. LINK:

“With the new Omicron variant sweeping the globe, how do we finally put an end to this pandemic? How do we save lives and get business back to normal so everybody can put dinner on the table?”

“The federal government needs to require vaccines, including booster shots, for everyone in America by, say, January 1st.”

And he made a good case as to why this should be the case:

“It’s time to admit that our government has lost the ability, or the will, to make our people do the right thing. Nobody wants to be the bad guy, so we’ve allowed a pastiche of uncoordinated health organizations to dictate an on-again-off-again series of measures that mostly just leave us baffled and confused.”

And then he went right after President Biden:

We haven’t centralized the issue to the point where the White House actually seems to take responsibility. We’d see. First was the CDC, then the FDA, the National Institutes of Health, mostly coordinating policy through talk shows. Then we left vaccination policy to individual companies. Now it’s toothless OSHA going back and forth on what’s allowed in factories, but nobody with any power saying the frontline workers need to be vaccinated. It’s just plain wrong, and most of us are sick of it.

Even as a vocal, anti-vax minority is always grabbing the mic, this charade must end. The government must require vaccinations. Not of this group or that group, not company by company, in a cruise ship by cruise ship, or airline by airline or governor by governor. The buck stops at the White House.

True, but at no other point in time has there been Fox News. At no other point in time did we not have a peaceful transition of power. At no other time did we have a crazed group gone crazy over just masks in school. And, at no other time has that same group, the most resistant to vaccinations, have the number of guns, the type of guns, and the desire to use those guns as now.

It would be dangerous. But so is leaving the vaccination question wide open to individuals. We are watching the virus mutate. Can science keep up with the mutations and near always have a vaccine ready on demand? Could a mutation develop that suddenly made the virus lethal in 25% of the cases? In all age groups? Probably not, but there’s no guarantee that it can’t. Could the virus spread so thoroughly around the world and throw us into a global depression? No guarantee it could not. The last depression ended up with a lot of people who lost their lives to covid. The only bigger economic depression left one-third of Europe dead, is called the Dark Ages, and lasted for 350 years.

There is no easy answer, but there are extremely good arguments on both sides. We sure know what Jim Cramer believes.
