In a 6-3 decision, the Conservative Supreme Court majority ruled that the vaccine or testing warrant for President Biden’s employer was unconstitutional.
Conservative Supreme Court majority votes in favor of COVID
The Conservative majority wrote, “While Congress has unquestionably given OSHA the power to regulate occupational hazards, it has not given this agency the power to regulate public health more broadly. Requiring the immunizations of 84 million Americans, selected simply because they work for employers with more than 100 employees, certainly falls into the latter category.
The three Liberals of the Court wrote in their dissent: “In our opinion, the court order seriously misapplies the applicable legal standards. And in doing so, it hinders the federal government’s ability to counter the unprecedented threat COVID-19 poses to our nation’s workers, ”they wrote in their dissent. Acting outside its jurisdiction and without a legal basis, the Court displaces the judgments of government officials responsible for responding to health emergencies at work. “
Supreme Court majority just limited how government can respond to health emergency
The majority decision was political, reckless and short-sighted. The court has crippled how the executive branch of government can respond to a public health emergency.
Americans die every day, but the court based its decision on the regulatory scope of OSHA. The decision makes no sense and has no legal basis.
The Conservative majority has been in crisis for months because its approval rating has plummeted and it is now seen as partisan.
The decision on the vaccine mandate is proof that the conservative majority is basing its decisions on ideology, not law.
The Biden administration is expected to release a new term from another government agency. Americans are dying, and they cannot give up this fight because a conservative majority insists on partisan politics.
