White House Tells Businesses To Implement Vaccine Mandate Despite Court-Ordered Pause


On Monday, the White House told businesses to implement President Biden’s vaccine mandate despite a federal appeals court ordering a temporary halt to the rules.

White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said businesses “should not wait” for the legal issues to be settled before implementing the order, which would take effect Jan. 4 if courts allow it to go forward.

“We say do not wait to take actions that will keep your workplace safe. It is important and critical to do, and waiting to get more people vaccinated will lead to more outbreaks and sickness,” she said.

On Saturday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit blocked the mandate pending review, writing that “the petitions give cause to believe there are grave statutory and constitutional issues with the Mandate.”

The Biden administration responded by asking the court to lift the pause, arguing that companies’ concerns of losing more employees are “premature” because the deadline is not until January.

Biden’s vaccine mandate is expected to further impact the U.S. economy as workers are fired or leave their jobs to avoid being forced to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

According to a survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation from late October, five percent of unvaccinated adults had already left their jobs because their employer implemented a vaccine mandate. At the time, one-quarter of workers said that their employer required vaccinations against the virus.

The Biden administration’s decision to tell businesses to ignore the court’s pause on the vaccine mandate comes shortly after the administration reissued a nationwide eviction moratorium that had been ruled unconstitutional.

“Well, look, the courts made it clear that the existing moratorium was not constitutional; it wouldn’t stand,” Biden said at the time.

In June, the Supreme Court had ruled that the CDC “exceeded its existing statutory authority by issuing a nationwide eviction moratorium. … clear and specific congressional authorization (via new legislation) would be necessary for the CDC to extend the moratorium past July 31.”

After an extension for the moratorium failed to receive enough votes in Congress, the CDC ignored the Supreme Court’s ruling and reissued a nationwide eviction moratorium. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky announced on Twitter that she had “signed an eviction moratorium for US counties experiencing substantial & high levels of [COVID-19] transmission.”

    RN here. My hospital just fired me for not being vaccinated while they simultaneously gaslight the community about Covid, promote a CRT agenda, and have an unprecedented staffing crisis.

    They are blatantly defying US laws and US courts. This is a dictatorship. The US FedGov has been overthrown.

    Yep. Friend of mine called me this am said all unvaccinated employees must meet with administration. She has been an RN for 33 years. She (almost 58 years old) worked every day scheduled during Covid (even worked on a covid unit)- contracted it and recovered. Well, that is gratitude for ya. Took the battlefield against an undetectable enemy, even risking the health of her own family. No treatments at the time and the usual virus complication treatments weren’t working.
    Her facility is already short of help. And they use to call them “Heroes”. “Better be nice to your nurses…some day your life may depend on them”. They know…they just DON”T CARE !

    It’s a shame that everyone has to suffer the wrath of Groping Joe’s globalist asshole bullshit and not just the Gormley herd of dumbfuck Karens that voted for him to stop the Orange Man’s meanietweets…

    They thought they’d only get the tip, but now that he’s balls deep they’re only now realizing how fucked we are
