Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis recently criticized Supreme Court Justices John Roberts & Brett Kavanaugh because they did not have a “backbone”, in their decision regarding the Biden administration’s mandate to use vaccines for certain health care workers.
Thursday’s Supreme Court ruling allowed the health care worker mandate, but it blocked enforcement of OSHA’s mandate for employers with more than 100 employees. Justices Roberts, Kavanaugh, and others sided with liberal justices regarding the mandate for health care workers.
DeSantis stated to a cheering crowd, “On the nurse mandate and the doctor mandate Roberts and Kavanaugh joined the liberals to permit the nurse mandate.”
He continued, “So here’s the thing. Think about how crazy this is.” “Now, Florida protected nurses so that we have workers. In other states, nurses were fired for not being vaccinated.
DeSantis pointed out that there are some hospitals in California that have so few staff that they allow COVID-positive employees who have been vaccinated to return to work.
“So they have COVID positive people back on, while the unvaccinated and likely immune through the previous infection, healthy nurses on the sidelines are fired,” said the Sunshine State governor. These policies are insane!
DeSantis stated, “But honestly Roberts and Kavanaugh didn’t have a backbone in that decision.” “That’s the bottom line.”
DeSantis also pledged to enforce Florida’s nursing protections in the wake of the mandate for health care workers to get vaccinated.
DeSantis, who made his “Ruthless” appearance to praise his administration’s reaction to the vaccine mandates, said that his state “didn’t necessarily wait for courts” when he resisted Biden’s mandate that vaccines be administered to American companies with more than 100 employees.
DeSantis stated in the podcast that he called a special session to ensure that Florida workers are not affected by these shots. You have the right and privilege to work.
Florida Governor Rick Scott called the OSHA mandate ruling on vaccines a “no-brainer” saying that it was “a no-brainer” that anyone who isn’t a far-left jurist would be able to make that decision.
OSHA’s mandate was in effect as of Monday. It required that businesses with more than 100 employees must require their workers to be vaccinated or to wear a mask during weekly testing.
OSHA was not authorized to impose this mandate, the court found. The law that created OSHA “enables the Secretary to establish workplace safety standards and not broad public health measures.”
