The Political and Legal Stars Are Aligned For Challenges to the OSHA Vaccine Mandate
The New York Times writes about the infuriated Republican Governors who plan to challenge the new OSHA vaccine mandate. Here are some of the highlights:
News of the mandates prompted Gov. Henry McMaster of South Carolina to say he would fight Mr. Biden and his party “to the gates of hell.”
“@JoeBiden see you in court,” Gov. Kristi Noem of South Dakota wrote on Twitter.
Gov. Brian Kemp of Georgia suggested that he might sue to “stop this blatantly unlawful overreach by the Biden administration.”
Gov. Kay Ivey of Alabama referred to the rules as “outrageous, overreaching mandates.”
And in Florida, where a judge on Friday allowed a ban on school mask mandates to remain in place as a legal challenge works its way through the courts, Gov. Ron DeSantis said in a fund-raising email that Mr. Biden had “declared war” on the rule of law and millions of Americans’ jobs by issuing the vaccine requirements.
Gov. Tate Reeves of Mississippi, who called the mandates “terrifying,” made a point of noting that “the vaccine itself is life-saving.” He added: “This is still America, and we still believe in freedom from tyrants.”
