PHOENIX — President Joe Biden announced Thursday a extensive COVID-19 action plan that will affect as many as 100 million Americans.

Arizona politicians on both major political parties were quick to share their thoughts on the new federal vaccine requirements.

Republicans and Democrats turned to social media to discuss how they felt the new plan Biden laid out, which will mandate all employers with over 100 workers to require them to be vaccinated or test for the virus weekly, as well as require all employees at health facilities that receive federal Medicare or Medicaid to also be vaccinated.

Arizona Rep. Ruben Gallego, a Democrat, backed Biden’s plan, stating the president is “doing what needs to be done to beat COVID-19.”

Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego, also a Democrat, said the new mandate is “critical action” needed to fight the virus.

Republican Gov. Doug Ducey denounced the plan, stating it “will never stand up in court.”

Attorney General Mark Brnovich, a Republican, said Biden is “taking federal overreach” and vowed to review his actions and take “all legal recourse to defend” Arizona’s sovereignty and the rights of Arizonans.
