OSHA to officially WITHDRAW vaccine mandates after SCOTUS ruling

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will officially end Joe Biden’s Covid-19 private worker vaccination mandates after they were ruled unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Biden administration’s mandates will formally be withdrawn by OSHA on Wednesday, Jan. 26.

“After evaluating the Court’s decision, OSHA is withdrawing the Vaccination and Testing ETS as an enforceable emergency temporary standard,” said Douglas Parker, Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA.

“This agency action becomes effective immediately both because there is good cause and because the action removes a requirement on the regulated community,” said Parker.

OSHA’s withdrawal comes after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that the agency did not have the authority to issue the private employer vaccination mandates.

“The Act empowers the [Health and Human Services] Secretary to set workplace safety standards, not broad public health measures,” the Supreme Court wrote in their per curium opinion.

Chief Justice John Roberts, and Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Bret Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett voted to block Joe Biden’s vaccination mandates against private businesses.

Biden’s and OSHA’s mandates, issued in November, required private businesses with 100 or more employees to see that all workers get vaccinated, or wear face masks and be subject to weekly Covid-19 testing.

The Biden administration threatened to fine and fire people from their jobs if they did not comply with the orders.

The Supreme Court majority maintained that the authority to “respond to the pandemic,” they continued, “rests with the States and Congress, not OSHA.”

However, the justices did rule that the Biden administration’s vaccine mandates for healthcare workers could still stand.

Conservative Justices John Roberts and Bret Kavanaugh joined the three liberal justices to form a majority.

While the vaccine mandates were sent back down to the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for a potential challenge from the Department of Labor, OSHA’s withdrawal signals that there will be no challenge.

Biden can call a reporter a stupid son of a bitch on an open mic and we rarely hear nothing about it on the news! Why? But I guess I'm going to ask this question who's the stupid son of a bitch now? Health care workers shouldn't have to be vaccinated either they was doing the job for over a year without a vaccine why now? This country is going to shut since this president came into office he needs to be impeached
