White House Quietly Delays Vaccine Mandate As Another Federal Judge Objects
Yet another federal court has decided to block the Biden White House’s COVID mandate, only this time the judge focused on a requirement for health-care workers to either get the jab, or say goodbye to their jobs.
Earlier this month, a judge in Texas blocked the White House from enforcing some of its mandate by way of large corporations. Now, a different federal district judge, this time in Missouri, is blocking the Biden administration from enforcing a vaccine mandate for health-care workers in some 10 states.
Meanwhile, as more courts object to the mandate, the White House is quietly telling federal agencies they can hold off on firing federal workers for not complying with the vaccine mandate until after the holidays, according to a memo obtained by the press on Monday. The decision was sourced to OMB, the White House’s Office of Management and Budget, according to the report.
