Judge isues injunction against the CMS healthcare worker vaccine mandate

Another huge win (finally).  First the OSHA mandate was halted, and now the Medicare/Medicaid mandate, which was imposed on all healthcare entities that did business with Medicare or Medicaid, has also been halted.

Ten states were parties to a lawsuit, led by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt,  requesting injunctive relief from the healthcare worker Covid vaccine mandate.  And today an injunction was granted.  It applies only to the ten states that were party to the lawsuit.

I have read the NYT, WaPo and several other accounts of this decision, but none so far have elaborated on how this is likely to affect the rest of the country.  I will say that the judge's conclusions were very strong that the mandate did not pass muster in many different ways.  I need a lawyer to tell us if these cases are likely to go to the Supreme Court, and what the next steps will be.

I expect that by tomorrow the legal scholars will have weighed in with detailed interpretations.  I will be watching for these.

I have a bad feeling about the SCOTUS. I hope I'm wrong.

You don't get to that level of power without being compromised. They will do what they are told. We win by everyone not complying. We have the power.
