The Supreme Court ruling states that facilities that receive Medicare and Medicaid funding must ensure their staff are vaccinated against COVID-19, “unless exempt for medical or religious reasons.” Peggy Hall explains that health care workers are legally entitled to an exemption and have recourse for employers who deny exemptions.

Peggy Hall explained that the Supreme Court upheld the federal government’s vaccination requirement for health care workers under the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) rule as a condition for facilities that receive funds from Medicare and Medicaid. The decision affects over 10 million health care workers. However, the lawsuits filed by Missouri and Louisiana is still ongoing in the lower district court. The cases are likely to eventually reach the Supreme Court.

The first page of the Supreme Court’s ruling states, “…In November 2021, the Secretary announced that, in order to receive Medicare and Medicaid funding, participating facilities must ensure that their staff—unless exempt for medical or religious reasons—are vaccinated against COVID–19.”

Peggy Hall indicated that if employers do not accept exemptions, they may be vulnerable to lawsuits because health care workers are legally entitled to an exemption.

On page 18 of the ruling, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote:
“These cases are not about the efficacy or importance of COVID–19 vaccines. They are only about whether CMS has the statutory authority to force healthcare workers, by coercing their employers, to undergo a medical procedure they do not want and cannot undo. Because the Government has not made a strong showing that Congress gave CMS that broad authority, I would deny the stays pending appeal. I respectfully dissent.”

The Supreme Court does not deserve our respect. It is a ridiculous institution that is not made up of mostly “conservatives” but rather is full of STATISTS. It does not uphold the Constitution. It is only there to help sell us poor serfs on the idea that the government ultimately needs to control every aspect of our lives. To summarize some of the Court’s more outrageous rulings: a black person can be considered three fifths of a person; killing viable babies in the womb is fine and dandy; forcing people to pay for overpriced Obamacare insurance is legal; and bullying… Read more »
