Biden somber as SCOTUS blocks employer mandate and federal overreach

The Supreme Court on Thursday has stopped the Biden administration from implementing the employer “vaccine mandate” on businesses with 100 or more employees. In the 6-3 ruling the administrations federal overreach on business was deemed unconstitutional and blocked.

The mandate was a cornerstone tactic of the administration in order to force the unvaccinated into getting vaccinated by forcing them to choose to feed themselves or their family or lose their lively hood.

In the courts majority ruling they wrote, “OSHA [Occupational Safety and Health Administration] has never before imposed such a mandate. Nor has Congress. Indeed, although Congress has enacted significant legislation addressing the COVID–19 pandemic, it has declined to enact any measure similar to what OSHA has promulgated here.”

This is the first time the federal government has ever tried such an overreach and an unconstitutional implementation in forcing people to get a medical treatment even against their will.

Biden has has issued a statement saying, “I am disappointed that the Supreme Court has chosen to block common-sense life-saving requirements for employees at large businesses that were grounded squarely in both science and the law,” Biden said, adding, “The Court has ruled that my administration cannot use the authority granted to it by Congress to require this measure, but that does not stop me from using my voice as President to advocate for employers to do the right thing to protect Americans’ health and economy.”
