A big ruling just came down from the Supreme Court.
The court ruling blocked OSHA’s strict vaccine requirements for large private companies.
This includes businesses with 100 or more employees.
These companies have been saved from the tyrannical vaccine mandates, at least for now.
On the flip side, some requirements will remain for medical facilities accepting Medicare and Medicaid payments.
The mandate would have required that companies with 100 or more employees either get vaccinated or show a negative COVID test weekly in order to go to work.
This is yet another huge blow to the Biden Administration.

CNBC with more:
The Supreme Court on Thursday blocked the Biden administration from enforcing its sweeping vaccine-or-test requirements for large private companies, but allowed a vaccine mandate to stand for medical facilities that take Medicare or Medicaid payments.
The rulings came three days after the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s emergency measure started to take effect.
That mandate required that workers at businesses with 100 or more employees must get vaccinated or submit a negative Covid test weekly to enter the workplace. It also required unvaccinated workers to wear masks indoors at work.
“Although Congress has indisputably given OSHA the power to regulate occupational dangers, it has not given that agency the power to regulate public health more broadly,” the court wrote in an unsigned opinion.
“Requiring the vaccination of 84 million Americans, selected simply because they work for employers with more than 100 employees, certainly falls in the latter category,” the court wrote.

For now, many are breathing a sigh of relief:
The Supreme Court has BLOCKED Joe Biden’s unconstitutional OSHA vaccine mandate.
This is a big win for American workers and sanity!
We must continue to fight against the Biden/Pelosi/Cartwright anti-job, anti-freedom agenda.

The Supreme Court blocked President Biden‘s OSHA mandate, which was blatantly and egregiously unconstitutional. The principle is simple: The president is not a king with the power to do whatever he wants regardless of the law and the facts.

SCOTUS VICTORY! Private employers are now free from an illegal, unconstitutional OSHA vax mandate.
Very happy to see the mandate blocked again after we got the same win in the 5th Circuit last month. https://t.co/FRXREe0nh6

BIDEN’S WORKPLACE MANDATE IS DEAD:
Supreme Court says OSHA Mandate exceeds “OSHA’s statutory authority and is otherwise unlawful”
It’s a terrible day to be a tyrant. God Bless the Supreme Court.
