Sen. Rick Scott Applauds SCOTUS’ Rejection of Biden’s Unconstitutional Vaccine Mandate

January 13, 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released the following statement after the United States Supreme Court rejected President Joe Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandate on private businesses.


Ahead of the case, Senator Scott joined Senator Mike Braun and 45 of their Senate colleagues in an amicus brief arguing that Congress did not grant the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) the authority to impose such an overreaching mandate and urging the court to block it. Senator Scott also joined Senator Braun last month in leading a bipartisan group of their colleagues to pass a Congressional Review Act measure striking down President Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandate in the U.S. Senate.


Senator Rick Scott said, “Today, the U.S. Supreme Court confirmed what the American people have always known and put President Biden back in his place. Joe Biden thinks that he has the authority to tell Americans how to live their life and what health care decisions they must make. He could not be more wrong, and the Court’s decision should serve as a powerful reminder to Biden that he is a president, not a king. I had COVID and I got the vaccine, but I will NEVER support a mandate that kills jobs and takes decisions out of the hands of hardworking American families.”
