Good move.

Biden said he is directing the Department of Health and Human Services to draw up new regulations making employee vaccination a condition for nursing homes to participate in Medicare and Medicaid. The decision on nursing home staff represents a significant escalation in Biden's campaign to get Americans vaccinated and the tools he is willing to use, marking the first time he has threatened to withhold federal funds in order to get people vaccinated.

Biden says US will require nursing homes get staff vaccinated or lose federal funds

Wow! Yes, good move. However,

Wow! Yes, good move. However, from what I've heard there are plenty of nursing home employees that have not gotten vaccinated. Will they get vaccinated or will there be a shortage of these workers?

So nobody is coming across

So nobody is coming across the border? What a relief. I guess crime hasn't risen in all the big cities either? What a safe and secure country we have. Except for all those evil anti-vaxers.

Nope....true conservative

Nope....true conservative Republicans that have integrity would not have much use for the Fox garbage. Also, many vets like my dad, who fought in WWII against fascism and evil dictators including Hitler would be sickened by the undemocratic and fascist commentators such as Fox mentally unstable Tucker Carlson. Fox is an entertainment network for lots of white supremacists, neo nazi, Proud Boy bigots. There are some misguided decent people that have been led estray by the lies and misinformation put out by Fox. We need to pray that these folks, including many elderly Americans will soon see the light. Instead of Fox News they should be renamed The Moron Network.

If only.

"true conservative Republicans that have integrity"

Vanishingly quiet for the last 20 or 30 years.

Since Knox Views is obviously

It is clear Red 53 has been led estray by Fox & Company. Since Knox Views is obviously a progressive site that encourages different viewpoints, it is great that Red is on the path to recovery. I hope and pray he can begin to see Fox for what it is, a network of fiction and not facts. All of the Knox View followers need to pray for Red 53 and all the many other Fox viewers that have been misguided and told lies.

Anybody that has been taken

Anybody that has been taken in and misguided by all the lies on Fox needs all the help and support they can get to see the light and realize the evilness of the Fox network of disinformation. Fox ignores facts and intentionally spreads lies to manipulates the minds of many ignorant, weak, and vulnerable individuals. It would be helpful if you and all the Fox viewers along with all Americans ask God for guidance in ending the influence of the Fox lies. God knows Fox has done enough damage to our democracy. All the damage Fox and Trump have done to our country can never be repaired but I hope and pray to God that you and others that have been brainwashed by Fox lies will soon realize your mistake and find a factual based source of news to guide your opinion and reject the evil and undemocratic Fox propaganda.
