Supreme Court Skeptical of Biden Vaccine Mandates, Decision Within Days

Ken Klukowski 8 Jan 2022 Washington, DC

WASHINGTON, DC – Vaccine mandates had a rough day at the Supreme Court Friday, as the justices appear poised to block President Joe Biden’s large employer vaccine mandate, though the fate of Biden’s healthcare provider mandate remains unclear.

Pursuant to Biden’s expressed wishes, federal agencies have been exploring how many Americans they could order vaccinated without Congress’s inserting a vaccine mandate into one of its coronavirus-response laws. (Think trying to impose Obamacare’s individual mandate without Congress ever passing the Affordable Care Act.) The Supreme Court heard challenges to two of those mandates Friday.

First was the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), a component of the U.S. Department of Labor, which issued a Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) mandating employers with 100 or more employees to require their employees to get vaccinated. The employer must either fire any employee who refused or pay a crippling penalty, beginning January 10.

“The government is trying to work across the waterfront, and is just going agency by agency,” Chief Justice John Roberts – considered a swing vote in these legal challenges – observed. He said the administration’s actions amounted to a “workaround. I’m just trying to figure out what you are trying to work around.”
