When the Supreme Court blocked OSHA’s vaccine-or-test mandate on Thursday while upholding the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ vaccine requirement for all health workers, you might think this was a split decision with the justices just calling balls and strikes. You’d be dead wrong.
First let’s discuss just how hypocritical the six conservative justices are. The Court insists on some of the strictest COVID-19 policy rules in the nation. All attorneys must take a PCR test and wear N95 or KN95 masks in court. But what they demand for themselves they deny to a construction or assembly worker. In other words, the most privileged can protect themselves, but they would deny that protection to everyday workers.
