There’s more and more news about the mandatory vaccine movement that the Biden administration wants to implement in the US. Just the other day, we were revealing that there’s been an important movement taking place in this direction.
It’s been just revealed that a U.S. federal appeals court issued a stay Saturday freezing the Biden administration’s efforts to require workers at U.S. companies with at least 100 employees be vaccinated against covid 19 or be tested weekly, citing “grave statutory and constitutional” issues with the rule.
An important win in court
The ruling from the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit comes after numerous Republican-led states filed legal challenges against the new rule. This was set to take effect on Jan 4.
As the press agency Reuters noted, in a statement, Solicitor of Labor Seema Nanda said the Labor Department was “confident in its legal authority” to issue the rule, which will be enforced by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
“The Occupational Safety and Health Act explicitly gives OSHA the authority to act quickly in an emergency where the agency finds that workers are subjected to a grave danger and a new standard is necessary to protect them,” she said.
She continued and stated the following:
“We are fully prepared to defend this standard in court.”
More important House and Senate members are making moves in this direction
The Daily Wire just noted that some very important House and Senate Republicans are moving to put an end to Democrat President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate. It’s also worth noting the fact that they are calling the move “a highly inappropriate invasion of what should be a personal medical decision for every American.”
Fox News reported that Rep. Fred Keller (R-PA) and Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN) were working together to use the Congressional Review Act to nullify the executive order.
“The Congressional Review Act allows us as members of Congress to keep the executive branch in check when they release these mandates, and we’re exercising our constitutional authority,” Keller told Fox News.
Keller continued and said:
“The federal government does not rule over the people. States make up the federal government. It is we the people that give the government its power, the government does not give power to the people.”
