Flurry of lawsuits to greet Biden administration's vaccine mandate

- WASHINGTON EXAMINER - Haisten Willis - NOV 4, 2021 -


Within hours of the Biden administration unveiling a Jan. 4 deadline for 100 million workers to get vaccinated, a small business advocacy group announced it is filing a lawsuit seeking to block the measure.

“The Biden administration’s vaccine mandate is clearly illegal and will have a devastating impact on our small business community and our entire economy," said Alfredo Ortiz, the CEO of the Job Creators Network.

JCN is suing the administration on the grounds that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration doesn't have authority to impose the mandate and that, in any case, there is neither the grave danger nor necessity to issue it.

It's just one of many court battles set to ensue over the rules, many coming from Republican leaders accusing the federal government of overreach into personal medical decisions.

At least 19 states have filed three separate lawsuits aimed at stopping the previously announced mandate for federal contractors, and the rules are being challenged by most of the Republican caucus in the Senate.

“This federal vaccine mandate is unconstitutional, and I can’t think of a worse decision for Joe Biden to make right now," Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall said in a statement Thursday.

"Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate is going to create more supply chain blocks, and that’s going to lead to more inflation — of course, Biden knows this, so he’s decided to hold off on enforcement until after the holidays. I will continue to do everything in my power to put a stop to this unconstitutional mandate.”

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, who filed the first lawsuit in the country against federal vaccine mandates in September, promised to file a new suit Friday morning over the OSHA rules.

"When faceless government bureaucrats dictate what you must inject into your body, that’s the furthest thing in the world from a safe workplace,” said Brnovich. “The government doesn’t get to be your nanny, and it’s certainly not your doctor.”

Lawsuits have been filed at all levels of government. Some police unions, including those representing Chicago , Los Angeles , and New York City , have filed suit against local mandates.

In a Wednesday evening call with reporters about the mandate, White House officials stated their belief that the OSHA measure is legal.
