A federal vaccine mandate on businesses throughout the United States has been blocked by the U.S. Supreme Court. The high court said in a 6-3 ruling that the mandate is too broad and thus is unconstitutional.
Senator Mike Braun is overjoyed with the ruling by the court — saying in a vide on Twitter that part of the reason why the court was swayed to block the mandate was his effort to invoke the Congressional Review Act to overrule the order.
A vaccine mandate on healthcare workers was upheld.
U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski released the following statement regarding the high court’s decision:
“I am relieved the U.S. Supreme Court rightfully has struck down President Biden’s unconstitutional mandate on workers and job creators, protecting Americans’ fundamental rights,” said Congresswoman Walorski. “The administration’s mandate on private employers clearly trampled on Americans’ liberties, and it would have been a disaster as we face mounting inflation, supply chain, and workforce crises. Northern Indiana is home to a robust manufacturing and small business community that feeds and powers our nation. Today the Supreme Court upheld these Hoosiers’ vital right to work and provide for their families.”
