The Supreme Court issued an opinion Thursday — but not the ones about the Biden administration’s vaccine mandates.
Fox News host Shannon Bream clarified that the decision could come at any minute.
“It’s always possible SCOTUS drops the vaccine mandate decision on an emergency basis with little warning,” Bream tweeted.
Many business owners and administrators are furious no decision has been made as the mandates went into effect on Monday.
“This is unbelieve this was not the 100% focus of this court after oral arguments,” one person wrote on the SCOTUS Blog. “This has serious repercussions without some clarity. Businesses cannot simply start a mandatory testing program for 1000’s of employees overnight. It takes planning and many businesses are waiting for a decision.”
The Supreme Court heard more than three and a half hours of oral argument Friday on the two cases against Biden’s vaccine mandates for private businesses with more than 100 employees and healthcare workers that get federal funding.
The liberal justices, Justice Sotomayor chief among them, shared misinformation about COVID during their questioning.
Sotomayor claimed 100,000 children have “serious” COVID symptoms with many on ventilators, but the number is closer to 3,000 and not in serious condition. She also said the Omicron variant is just as deadly as Delta for the unvaccinated, which is not true. Finally, she claimed, “This is not a vaccine mandate…It’s something totally different.”
