BREAKING: Biden's Vaccine Mandate Gets Blocked By Federal Appeals Court

The Biden administration’s COVID vaccine mandate on businesses with more than 100 employees was temporarily blocked on Saturday.


The three-judge panel from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in Louisiana granted the stay in response to a joint legal challenge by businesses, religious organizations, and a number of Republican-lead states, who argued that the Biden administration overstepped its authority in issuing the mandate.


According to the order issued by the court, the panel blocked the mandate “because the petitions give cause to believe there are grave statutory and constitutional issues with the Mandate,” and suspended the mandate “pending further action by this court.”

Joe Biden has struggled to boost vaccination rates since his pause of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine caused a dramatic decline in trust in all of the available vaccines. As a result, Biden’s goal of a 70% vaccination rate by Independence Day was not met.

Earlier this year, Biden dismissed the idea that he would ever impose a vaccine mandate. “No, I don’t think it should be mandatory,” he said. “I wouldn’t demand it be mandatory. But I would do everything in my power — just like I don’t think masks have to be made mandatory nationwide — I will do everything in my power as president of the United States to encourage people to do the right thing. And when they do it, demonstrate that it matters.”


So now they're making him keep his word.
