Sorry, Joe, but you lose again.
An appeals court has once again dealt Biden a loss on the vaccine mandate front.
They will surely appeal the decision, but I do not see any way that the Supreme Court would overturn this verdict.
The original case was brought by Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron.
Two other states joined the case.
This centered around government contractors being forced to take the vaccine in order to do business with the federal government.
The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld a lower court ruling that blocked the mandate.
The ruling stated, “We decline the government’s invitation to construe as authorizing the President to ignore the limits inherent in the Property Act’s operative provisions in favor of an ‘anything goes’ pursuit of a broad statutory purpose.”
After the decision was announced, Cameron stated, “We argued that the federal contractor vaccine mandate is unlawful and that the Biden administration does not have the authority to impose such a sweeping mandate on Kentuckians.”

He continued, “For over a year, the Biden administration has fought against us, but the court has agreed with our legal arguments and has halted the federal contractor vaccine mandate for Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee.”
