Allen responds to Supreme Court blocking Biden vaccine mandate

U.S. Rep. Rick Allen (R-Ga.) released a statement in response to the United States Supreme Court’s decision to block the Biden Administration’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration Emergency Temporary Standard requiring mandated COVID-19 vaccinations or weekly testing among private employers with over 100 employees.

“After months of uncertainty, today’s ruling is a win for America’s workers, businesses, and economy. As I’ve said since day one, folks should get the vaccine if they’re able, but ultimately, it’s a personal choice and not up to OSHA to regulate actions outside of the workplace. OSHA is not a public health agency, and the Biden Administration should have never treated it as such. I’m proud to have led the fight at the congressional level and am grateful for the Supreme Court’s swift decision,” Allen said.

  1. Does that reasoning apply to seat belt laws, helmet laws, requiring childhood vaccinations to attend school or any other law or regulation whose stated purpose is to protect citizens from themselves or others?

  2. Yes, yes it does, but someone with big, big bucks will have to bring the lawsuit before they can make a decission. Then only the smart and strong will survive and no more stupid adults will be running their mouths, because they will be eleminated in childhood.
