US Supreme Court blocks Biden’s vaccine-or-test mandate for businesses – Insider Paper

The US Supreme Court dealt a blow to President Joe Biden on Thursday, blocking his Covid test or vaccine mandate for big business.

In a split ruling, the nation’s highest court allowed a vaccination mandate for health care workers at facilities that receive federal funds to go forward.

But the court’s six conservative justices ruled against Biden’s offer announced in September to make Covid vaccinations or weekly tests mandatory at businesses employing 100 workers or more.

The three liberal justices dissented.

The vaccination mandate for health care workers passed in a 5-4 vote, with Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh, both conservatives, joining the three liberals.
