Today the Supreme Court of The United States upheld the stay on Biden’s vaccine mandate for businesses with 100 or more employees. The Court in a 6-3 decision said that Executive Branch could NOT use the regulatory power of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to, in Ron Klains words, “work around the Constitution” and issue health mandates to private businesses.
Republican politicians and conservative news outlets such as Fox News were touting this as another failure of the Biden administration and a victory for freedom and liberty.
What all these conservative talking heads are missing is that the decision by SCOTUS is a HUGE GIFT to Joe Biden. The Court handed him an Ace, a “get out of jail free” card that he can keep in his pocket. Biden can pull this Ace out if the virus pandemic goes South on him. This decision will allow Joe Biden to say, “C’mon man, I had a FOOL PROOF PLAN to shut down the virus but SCOTUS prevented me from executing my PLAN. If my plan had been implemented, the virus would have 100% been eliminated.“
There is no way to prove Biden wrong. Play the “Get out of jail free” card and blame ANY disastrous turn of the virus on the Court. “It’s the Courts fault and all those Trump appointed justices, Kavanaugh, Barrett, and Gorsuch that are making you suffer and your loved ones to die. This is why we need to realign the Supreme Court”.
If they play this right, they can blame almost anything wrong on this decision.
Supply chain issues. “Look, look, the shelves are bare in stores because my plan to “shut down” the virus wasn’t implemented because of the Supreme Court’s decision”
Voting rights. “No joke. We need to have Federal election laws because states are suppressing you right to vote, by not allowing universal mail-in voting during this continuing pandemic, created by the Supreme Court”.
Any problem can be blamed on the virus because of the Supreme Court’s decision.
This is NOT a failure for the administration. This is one SUPREME GIFT to Joe Biden.
