The Justices Who Gave Biden a Win

I am sure by now you have all heard of Democratic President Joe Biden’s overreaching and disastrous vaccine mandates. By and large, they weren’t meant to be a good thing, I think, something to supposedly ensure that the COVID-19 pandemic would end here in America and that lives would be saved.

However, as you well know, it has turned into quite a battle over the last few months.

The main problem with the mandates is, of course, that they are mandates. They force individuals into healthcare procedures they don’t necessarily need or want, which defies our individual rights.

And so, it is no surprise that the controversial issue was brought before the Supreme Court.

Now, to be clear, there is more than one mandate and therefore more than one Supreme Court case to be heard. One mandate sought to force all companies in the US that employ 100 or more individuals to require a double jab, if not triple jab. This case was heard over the last week as well, and the Court struck it down.

However, the same cannot be said of the mandate that will require all employees of US nursing homes and other federally funded health care facilities to be fully vaccinated.

On Thursday, this case was ruled upon in the Supreme Court and allowed to be pushed through with a 5-4 decision.

Naturally, the White House and Joe Biden are rather ecstatic over the win. After all, the last few weeks have been a bit rough, what with their other vaccine mandate getting knocked down, their hopes for the filibuster being dashed being the boot, and Biden’s overall approval rating dropping to even lower rates than ever before.

As White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in a news briefing shortly after the ruling in the High Court was made, “CMS’s requirement for health care workers to be vaccinated will save the lives of patients as well as the lives of doctors, nurses, and other who work in health care settings.” As she continued to explain, some 17 million health care workers at about 76,000 health care facilities will soon have to be fully vaccinated or risk being fired.
