Are Justices Kavanaugh & Roberts A Disappointment To Conservatives?

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis slammed Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and John Roberts as having no "backbone" as they supported liberal justices to keep President Biden's vaccine mandate for healthcare workers.

The Supreme Court on Thursday published an expected ruling blocking Biden's mandate ordering businesses with 100 or more employees to require vaccination or weekly testing. The high court, however, enabled a mandate requiring facilities that receive federal funding to tell employees to get vaccinated.

"On the nurse mandate and the doctor mandate, Roberts and Kavanaugh joined with the liberals to allow the nurse mandate," DeSantis said during a guest appearance on the "Ruthless" podcast on Friday.

"So here's what's going on, think about how insane this is," he added. "Now, in Florida, we protect the nurses, so we have people that are working. But in other states, they fired nurses who were not vaccinated."

The court ruled 6-3 to turn down the federal mandate for private employers, 5-4 to allow the mandate for federally funded healthcare facilities to remain in place.

The court's decision is not the last say on the healthcare mandate - 27 states had demanded the Supreme Court to publish a stay on the rule while it is fought in lower courts.

DeSantis stressed that hospitals in places like California are allowing Covid-positive nurses to return to work due to short staffing.

"So they have COVID-positive people back on, meanwhile the unvaccinated, likely immune through prior infection, healthy nurses are on the sidelines fired," the Sunshine State governor continued. "How insane are these policies?"

"But honestly, Roberts and Kavanaugh did not have a backbone on that decision,' DeSantis also said. "That's just the bottom line."

DeSantis already in November signed a bill banning vaccine mandates in the state unless employers offered up a broad range of exemptions.

"I called a special session of the legislature in November and we provided protections so that, in Florida, you're not going to lose your job over these shots," DeSantis said in the podcast. "You have the right to work."

DeSantis said on Thursday after the SCOTUS order that he would implement the Florida law banning private employers' vaccine mandates as well as requirements for public workers.

"We're going to make sure that that is enforced, and we're going to make sure we're providing protection for people so that they don't have their livelihoods ruined by an unconstitutional and really ham-handed federal mandate," DeSantis said.

But Florida Hospital Association President and CEO Mary Mayhew said that centers getting Medicare and Medicaid funding could still implement vaccine mandates for their employees.
