SCOTUS To Hear Oral Arguments On Biden Vaccine Mandates Today

Once again, I whole-heartedly recommend getting vaccinate. I have, and I got the booster, and I have a reminder to check on getting another booster in April. I prefer to be protected, and, if I get it, know it will most likely be mild. Others can make their own f’ing decisions

Vaccine mandates: The ‘big question’ at the heart of a Supreme Court challenge

The U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled on Friday to hear oral arguments on emergency applications for and against the Biden administration’s right to enforce two vaccine mandates that impact roughly 100 million U.S. workers, and that, for now, remain in legal limbo.

The in-person arguments, rarely granted to handle emergency applications, will address a narrow issue: whether the states and business groups seeking to invalidate the mandates as unconstitutional can keep them from being carried out until courts determine the legality of the mandates themselves.

“The big question in both cases is whether the federal government has the authority to impose such a sweeping requirement, whether the government followed the appropriate due process procedure, and whether the government overreached by imposing rules that are going to strain businesses already struggling with major staffing shortages,” Harry Nelson, founder and managing partner of health care law firm Nelson Hardiman, said about the broader constitutional issue.

The administration’s authority to direct private business to require vaccination policies has been mired in litigation brought by Republican-led states, as well as business groups. Court orders in those cases, some allowing and some denying enforcement during their pendency, have shown enough inconsistency to get the high court’s attention.

The mandates’ challengers say that in directing OSHA and CMS to adopt vaccination requirements, the Biden administration overstepped its executive authority. Congress never delegated that power to the executive branch, they argue.

Has the Legislative branch been granted the power to pass a law which would allow vaccine mandates, and did Congress pass a law on any Constitutional authority that grants the Executive branch the power to implement mandates? I’m betting one question will be on why it’s only on companies with 100+ employees.

I guess we will see.

    Good news on the vaccine front…

    (Reuters) – COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy was not associated with preterm delivery or underweight newborns, in a study published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Tuesday.

    Rates of preterm birth were 4.9% among more than 10,000 women who received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, compared to 7.0% for roughly 36,000 unvaccinated women, researchers said on Tuesday in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. The difference was not deemed to be statistically significant.

    In addition, COVID-19 vaccination did not increase the risk of delivering a baby who weighed less than usual for the number of weeks of pregnancy, the researchers found.

    A federal judge has ordered the FDA to release 55,000 pages of Pfizer licensure data a month, instead of the 500 pages that the FDA said they could do (which would mean that it would be 2097 before all of the information was released).

    It’s pretty clear from the first data drop as to why they are wanting to keep this stuff under wraps. In the first three months of the Pfizer vaxx rollout, there were over 1200 deaths and 160,000 adverse events. Most of these effected people in the 31-50 age range in the US.

    It took 108 days of review for the FDA to approve the Pfizer shot (which was still not available in the US) and they wanted 75 YEARS to release it all.
    The age range (31-50) of the initial adverse events is included in the age range who are having a higher death and disability claim rate in Indiana (18-64).

    Bwaha! Lolgf

    A “wise” Latina indeed!

    Why is a human being not like a machine if it’s spewing a virus, blood-borne viruses?”

    “There’s no mandate here for a vaccine… ”

    Bwaha! Lolgf
