On Thursday, American workers, most of them, were saved by the Supreme Court.
The high court struck down Joe Biden’s small business vaccine mandate.
Sadly, the mandate for some health care workers will remain in place.
Big Win, for Some
So, now it is official.
The OSHA rule that was put in place has been deemed to be unconstitutional and an overreach of the government.
That is now the second time this administration has lost a battle regarding the Constitution and its overreaching power before the Supreme Court (and there are surely more to come).
The ruling means that the federal mandate that would require all businesses of 100 or more to face heavy fines if their staffers were not vaccinated will be no more.
This ruling also puts up a roadblock for the possibility of future legislation for smaller businesses.
The problem for some workers is that numerous major corporations have already put their own mandates in place and have already lost their jobs.
Since those mandates were based on the expectation of the OSHA rule, it will be interesting to see how this all works out legally.
Health care workers did not get the same reprieve.
Tens of thousands of them have already lost their jobs, and more are now likely to join that growing list.
Ironically, even though the court allowed that mandate to remain in place, the health care industry is now allowing some COVID-positive workers to work due to staffing shortages created by all the firings.
Center for American Liberty CEO and civil rights attorney Harmeet Dhillon warned that we are seeing a massive overreach of government, even with the one mandate being struck down.
She stated, “Now we’re two years into this thing…this is a scary situation.
“We have unelected judges and in some cases unelected health officials in cities who are imposing regulations that govern a significant portion of our economy.
“This is not a democratic or even a Republican system of government anymore.”
She is correct, as we have seen this administration even admit that it was putting laws into place it knew would not hold up and that were unconstitutional.
When you have a current Oval Office occupant openly admitting this on TV and still bold enough to implement the rule anyway, we have a problem.
