Federal Court Orders Nationwide Pause on Federal Employee Vaccine Mandate

Ridgewood NJ, A federal court in Texas has issued an injunction against President Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for the federal workforce, pausing implementation of a requirement for more than 2 million civilian servants.

U.S. Court for the Southern District of Texas Judge Jeffrey Brown, said the case was not about whether individuals should be vaccinated or even about federal power generally.

“It is instead about whether the president can, with the stroke of a pen and without the input of Congress, require millions of federal employees to undergo a medical procedure as a condition of their employment,” Brown wrote. “That, under the current state of the law as just recently expressed by the Supreme Court, is a bridge too far.”

The Supreme Court last week struck down a Federal Mandate that would have required private sector employers with more than 100 workers, and the U.S. Postal Service, to test or vaccinate their employees. The federal employee case was brought by Feds for Medical Freedom, which filed three different lawsuits against the mandate, as well as an American Federation of Government Employees council that represents workers in the Homeland Security Department’s Federal Protective Service.

    This is what’s shocking about our country. Individuals in high offices who behave like kings and with a stroke of a pen sign orders about personal health issues that mess up lives for millions of people. How do they do this when it is not on strong legal basis? They are forcing injections into peoples’ bodies in a totally non emergency situation and when the pandemic is clearly in decline not to mention that it is becoming more and more clear that the vaccinated get as sick if not more sick that unvaccinated by Omicron. I have seen this first hand. And in general Omicron for the vast majority of people if an easy cold. Where the heck is the logic? And then starts the marathon of passing the hot potato from one court to the another while the public suffers. What a circus of a country! A sad joke.

  2. This Covid sucks. And I received all of the shots. I wonder if it was a waste.
