SCOTUS Declines to Hear Biden’s Covid Vaccine Mandate

Some bad news on the legal front on Monday from the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court has declined to hear a case challenging Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for health care workers at facilities that get federal funds. The case was pursued by Missouri, Nebraska, Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming. The case is Missouri v. Biden.

This would apply to most of the healthcare workers in the country, some 10.4 million, who are subject to the mandate, although there are medical and religious exemptions. The case is Missouri v. Biden.

In their lawsuit, the states alleged that the mandate has exacerbated worker shortages in hospitals and is “now devastating small, rural, and community-based healthcare facilities and systems throughout the states.” [….]

In January, the court struck down President Biden’s vaccine requirement for private sector companies with 100 or more employees but it preserved the health-care-worker mandate pending litigation at the lower court level.

Justice Alito dissented at that time, noting:

“I do not think that the Federal Government is likely to be able to show that Congress has authorized the unprecedented step of compelling over 10,000,000 healthcare workers to be vaccinated on pain of being fired.” He noted that CMS rushed the mandate, admitting it “did not comply with the commonsense measure of seeking public input before placing binding rules on millions of people,” as it claimed the Covid-19 crisis was too urgent to delay the action.

Not a great decision for all those workers.

But the Biden Administration doesn’t care about how much this might hurt people, throw them out of work or decimate rural communities that need health care, even while Biden and the Democrats claim to care about health care.

This decision also comes after Biden declared that the “pandemic is over.” Yet he still going ahead with this.

As I reported previously, Biden is still pursuing similar requirements against members of our military. He recognized the heroic work of Zach Loesch, a member of the Coast Guard, who saved lives during Hurricane Ian in Florida. But Loesch explained to reporters after his call with Biden that he is about to be given the boot because he isn’t vaccinated, regardless of his heroic work.

Biden and the Democrats can’t justify this kind of insanity at this point and they need to be thrown out of office for allowing such things to happen.

    What bothers me more than the mandate itself is the routine end-run around the Constitution used to impose it: it applies “at facilities that get federal funds”. There shouldn’t be “federal funds” in the first place except for limited government purposes like defense. Once you allow that much, the tenth amendment is meaningless because feds can rule by threatening to withhold funds.

    Another stab in the heart of EVERY American. The SCOTUS has been selling us down the river for over 60 years now. It’s time to CLEAN HOUSE. It’s time to take back the country. There’s only ONE way to do it – KILL EVERY FUCKING PERSON in this current ILLEGITIMATE ‘Administration’, and KILL EVERY GLOBAL ELITIST responsible for the ‘world reset’. The following deserve NOTHING LESS than a bullet in the head: Soros, Schwab, Obama, Gates, Bezos, Clintons, (both), and HUNDREDS of others who need to be KILLED IMMEDIATELY.
    Go ahead, and laugh at my post. I GUARANTEE you, unless this is done, we’re going to continue to experience tyranny from dictatorial tyrants. FIND THEM. KILL THEM. DONE!

    They are cowards for failing to address this….hundreds, up to multiple thousands of hero’s have lost (or are losing!) jobs for refusing to get a jab that is known to have killed some and that has had horrible side effects for many others who bought the lie….

    Shame on the SCOTUS! Since when does Biden make law? Making laws is congresses job.

  • W. Hamil says:

    What good does it do us to have a Supreme Court if they refuse to hear important cases like this?

    Refusing to accept a case achieves the exact same result as ruling against it.

    Supreme Court is allowed to pick and choose which cases they’ll accept and which cases they’ll reject. A rejected case is the equivalent of a big fat “NO” from the court.

    Thumbs Down to Supreme Court for refusing to hear this case.
