SCOTUS Ends Mandates for U.S. Businesses

In a huge blow to President Joe Biden, the U.S. Supreme Court responded to his COVID overreach the way most Americans had hoped: striking down the largest of his vaccine mandates. By a vote of 6-3, the justices agreed that the president had zero authority to demand that employers of 100 or more employees be vaccinated or bear the weight of routine testing.

In a rebuke to the White House’s COVID strategy, the court’s majority reminded Biden and his Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) that “Administrative agencies are creatures of statute. They accordingly possess only the authority that Congress has provided. The Secretary has ordered 84 million Americans to either obtain a COVID–19 vaccine or undergo weekly medical testing at their own expense. This is no ‘everyday exercise of federal power.’ It is instead a significant encroachment into the lives — and health — of a vast number of employees.”

Pointing out that there has “never before” been such a mandate from anyone — Congress included — Justices John Roberts, Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Samuel Alito, and Amy Coney Barrett tried to explain the limits of the government’s power. While OSHA can set “workplace safety standards,” that’s not the same as “broad public health measures,” they wrote. In our system of government, policies like this one are “the responsibility of those chosen by the people through democratic processes.”

Over the objections of Barrett, Thomas, Alito, and Gorsuch, the court did leave the vaccination requirement in place for health care workers at any facilities that get Medicaid and Medicare funds by a narrower 5-4 margin. By the White House’s estimate, that means about 17 million Americans will be affected by the stay, which will continue to fuel shortages of healthcare workers as they are fired or quit to avoid the forced vaccine. As far as Justice Thomas is concerned, if it’s unconstitutional in the private sector, then it’s unconstitutional in the health industry too. In a separate dissent, he argued that the administration doesn’t have the authority “to force health care workers, by coercing their employers, to undergo a medical procedure they do not want and cannot undo.”

For state leaders across the country, many of whom have been fighting these mandates in court for months, the news came as a huge relief. “Today’s ruling protects our individual rights and states’ rights to pursue the solutions that work best for their citizens,” said our good friend Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost (R), who led a coalition of states in challenging the rule. FRC congratulates him and the other attorneys general on a hard-fought victory for freedom and personal choice!


HD Editor’s Note:

Franklin Graham on Facebook also commended the supreme courts ruling, calling it an answer to prayer that Christians should thank God for:

Thank God for answered prayer! Today the Supreme Court halted the implementation of the Biden Administration’s OSHA Vaccine and Testing mandate. The Court said it was far beyond the authority of OSHA and that the agency tried to grab power more than at any time in its history. OSHA cannot usurp the role of Congress.
 
This socialistic mandate aggressively overreached and disrupted the lives of millions of people this week as businesses were trying to comply with a 490-page order to avoid unbelievable fines. I thank God that the Supreme Court had enough common sense to see this as what it is. OSHA is not in charge of public health and this was far beyond occupational hazards.
 
As this ruling goes back to the 6th Circuit Court for a final determination, pray that they will put an end to this madness.

Franklin Graham Establishes ‘Billy Graham Defense Fund’ To Protect Gospel Outreach In The UK

"We’re going to use these funds that came from this battle against cancel culture to help other Christians who may be threatened into silence," he announced. "This is a victory, not just for us, but for all Christians and churches across the UK."

Hamas Led The Charge On October 7th, But Islam Motivated Hamas

The Hamas attack does not reflect the actions of most Muslims, but it does reflect the Quran. All ideas are not equal. Adolf Hitler’s ideas were not as noble as those of Florence Nightingale. And Islam is not just another version of Christianity. They are as different as black and white, good and evil.
