Rep. Tenney to Newsmax: NYC Mayor a ‘Tyrant’ With ‘Last-Gasp’ Mandate

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is acting like a “tyrant” by imposing his “last-gasp” COVID-19 vaccine mandate on the city’s businesses when there is no evidence that such extreme measures are needed, Rep. Claudia Tenney said on Newsmax Tuesday. 

“Businesses across New York, especially private entities, are going to tailspin because even our own governor, Kathy Hochul, is not imposing as extreme a mandate,” the New York Republican said on Newsmax’s “National Report.”  

Under the mandate, all 184,000 businesses inside the New York City limits must make employees show proof of vaccination by Dec. 27. Further, by Dec. 14, all children ages 5-11 must have had at least one dose of the vaccination in order to be allowed to enter restaurants or to participate in extracurricular school activities, de Blasio said.
