The Supreme Court struck down Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for businesses with 100 or more employees. The major ruling came down Thursday, alongside a separate decision from the justices to uphold the mandate for health care workers at federally funded facilities.
NEW: The Supreme Court blocked Biden’s authoritarian vaccine mandate for private businesses.
This is a victory for American workers, and the GOP is proud of our role filing one of the lawsuits that halted this mandate.

The OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) mandate for large businesses partially took effect Monday and has faced legal challenges since Biden’s announcement several months ago. On Thursday, the Supreme Court decided that mandate is unconstitutional and blocked it on a federal level.
???????????? Huge victory for freedom and hardworking Americans!
The Supreme Court just BLOCKED Biden’s authoritarian vaccine mandate for businesses.
But let’s be clear: This doesn’t go far enough. Health care workers should NOT be subjected to this tyrannical mandate either.

As expected, in a split ruling, the Supreme Court upheld the HHS (Health and Human Services) mandate for health care workers.
