U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement after the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals blocked the Biden Administration’s OSHA vaccine mandate.
“The Fifth Circuit got this one right — these vaccine mandates are unconstitutional slop. The vaccines themselves are miracles of modern medicine and American ingenuity. But we’re not going to beat this awful virus with extreme partisanship or unconstitutional executive orders. The OSHA mandate is unconstitutional, and at the end of the day will only increase vaccine hesitancy. The President should take a long look at this decision and reverse course before the courts embarrass him again.”
