DeSantis Says Roberts, Kavanaugh Lack ‘Backbone’ on Vaccine Mandate Ruling

In a guest appearance on a conservative podcast Friday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis criticized Supreme Court Justices John Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh for lacking a ”backbone” in their ruling on the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate for certain health workers.

On Thursday, the Supreme Court allowed the healthcare worker mandate to go into effect but blocked enforcement of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s vaccine mandate for businesses with 100 or more employees. Justices Roberts and Kavanaugh sided with the liberal justices on the healthcare worker mandate.

”On the nurse mandate and the doctor mandate, Roberts and Kavanaugh joined with the liberals to allow the nurse mandate,” DeSantis said on the podcast “Ruthless.” ”Now, in Florida, we protected the nurses, so we have people that are working. But in other states, they fired nurses who were not vaccinated.”
