(Breitbart) The U.S. Supreme Court blocked President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate on large private businesses through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on Thursday, but upheld a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) mandate.
The decision on the OSHA mandate was 6-3; the decision on the CMS mandate was 5-4, with Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh joining the court’s three Democratic appointees in upholding it.
As Breitbart News reported last week, the Court had appeared skeptical of the mandates during oral arguments, especially the OSHA mandate, as Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar struggled to identify the statutory authority for imposing it.
Chief Justice Roberts had seemed particularly irritated by a comment by MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle that had been retweeted by White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain, which referred to the OSHA mandate as a “workaround.”
