Was President Joe Biden’s announcement on Sept. 9th of a vaccine mandate for business using 100 or more individuals a bluff to encourage more Americans to be vaccinated?
One month later, as mentioned by The Federalists’ Pleasure Pullman, no rule has been released by the Department of Labor’s Occupational Security and Health Administration, referred to as OSHA.
The Republican attorneys general who has threatened to take legal action against this on constitutional grounds has not yet filed, because there is no mandate for them to bring to court.
That “might be part of the strategy,” wrote Pullman, The Federalist’s executive editor.
The Biden administration, she said, is imposing the public perception of a mandate by following an unusual rule-making process called an emergency temporary standard, or ETS.
However, although the emergency procedure, OSHA states it uses up to six months for a rule to go into effect after it is provided in the Federal Register. Which hasn’t occurred yet. On the other hand, companies are telling reporters their vaccine required will have until the December deadline.
Pullman observed that “using the ETS procedure instead of normal federal rule-making processes both allows the Biden administration to push its demands faster and without any public input or requirement of responding to public input, which is normally required of even legally laughable federal rule-making like this one would be.”
“That is part of why ETS rules have actually been overwhelmingly reversed in courts,” she wrote.
OSHA has actually used that legal authority only 10 times in 50 years, said David Rivkin Jr. and Robert Alt in the Wall Street Journal in September. Courts have actually ruled on difficulties to six of those standards, declining five and maintaining only one.
