As the legal battle over Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate heats up, 12 states announced on Monday a lawsuit against the Biden administration that would block mandatory vaccinations for health professionals.
The state’s attorneys general argue that the mandate is unconstitutional — the federal executive has no such power over the mandate.
The crux of the argument is that Medicare and Medicaid health professionals mandated to be vaccinated are not only unconstitutional, but also adversely affect patients.

will not comply
The latest lawsuit to stop Biden’s mandate has been filed by the attorneys general of Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Utah and West Virginia.
A statement announcing the lawsuit reads as follows:
“The Biden administration is playing statutory games with the courts and is making efforts to justify an unwarranted and unprecedented attempt to federalize public health policies and reduce the constitutional powers of sovereign states. No statute authorizes the federal government to mandate vaccines to boost societal immunity. The solution of the administration? Use legislative arrangements never before interpreted to allow federal vaccine mandates to push presidential goals into the fabric of American society.”

The suit goes on to say, “The Vaccine Mandate poses grave danger to vulnerable individuals that Medicare and Medicaid were supposed to protect — the poor, the sick and the elderly — by forcing the termination of millions of ‘healthcare heroes’.”
I count five Biden vaccine mandates:
They are all immoral, illogical and unscientific.
I have a bill, HR3860 to end the military mandate. The other mandates are unconstitutional abuse of power. Defuse them

call it what it is
Earlier this month, the United States’ 5th Circuit Court of Appeals temporarily halted the Biden administration’s attempt to mandate vaccinations for companies with 100 employees or more, or force those employees to undergo weekly tests.
The court cited “serious statutory and constitutional issues with the mandate, the mandate is hereby suspended pending further action by this court.” The 12 states involved are asking for a provisional provision to end the mandate.
The court’s decision did not stop the Biden administration from telling companies to ignore the court and comply with its mandate.

Florida can opt out of OSHA
Again, Florida could lead the way when it comes to shedding massive government force majeure. At a special session of the state legislature dealing with COVID-19 issues, the “HB 5B” measure is likely to be passed.
The bill would allow Gov. Ron DeSantis to devise a plan for the state to take control of worker safety and health, and come under the thumb of OSHA and the control of the federal government.
