it’s imperative for brave Republican elected officials to use all of their legal might to combat Joe Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandate on private businesses, which went into effect last week.
Almost immediately, multiple state attorneys general filed suits against the Biden administration and his illegal use of OSHA’s emergency loop hole in ordering employees to get vaccinated or lose their jobs.
A miracle victory resulted and a U.S. federal appeals court issued a stay on temporarily halting the vaccine mandate that would have required companies with at least 100 employees to get vaccinated for the coronavirus or be tested weekly.
The ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit stated the following:
Before the court is the petitioners’ emergency motion to stay enforcement of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s November 5, 2021 Emergency Temporary Standard (the “Mandate”) pending expedited judicial review.
Because the petitions give cause to believe there are grave statutory and constitutional issues with the Mandate, the Mandate is hereby STAYED pending further action by this court.
Forcing Americans to choose between their livelihoods and their freedom is a grotesque abuse of power, plain and simple. Joe Biden insistence on doing just that tells you everything you need to know about the party he represents.
Some state officials have also vowed to take action against the OSHA mandate.
“Yesterday, I sued the Biden Admin over its unlawful OSHA vax mandate,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott said that emergency hearings would soon take place, and that “we will have our day in court to strike down Biden’s unconstitutional abuse of authority.”
Yesterday, I sued the Biden Admin over its unlawful OSHA vax mandate.
WE WON. Just this morning, citing “grave statutory and constitutional issues,” the 5th Circuit stayed the mandate. The fight is not over and I will never stop resisting this Admin’s unconstitutional overreach! pic.twitter.com/okt2vkNRKo

Other attorneys general joined the fight in halting Biden’s medical overreach.
Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry celebrated the Appeals Court decision, calling it a “major win for liberty.”
West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey wrote, “We’re diving deeper into how this impacts the entire country, but this is obviously very good news & consistent with our belief that Biden’s vaccine mandates are unlawful, unconstitutional & just wrong!”
The fight against Biden’s vaccine mandate is a refreshing reminder that the country as a whole is not doomed, regardless of how disconcerting Biden’s policies may be. There remains a cadre of brave Republicans willing to fight for what’s right: liberty, privacy, and above all else, freedom from the federal government.
