On Nov. 4, 2021, the Biden administration issued a sweeping and blatantly unlawful mandate that confronted tens of millions of Americans with a grim choice — get vaccinated or get tested and wear a mask to work, or risk losing your job. How did the Biden administration plan to pull this off? By commandeering every company in America with over 100 employees to comply. Under the administration’s mandate, companies would be fined around $13,600 per “violation.” A violation would entail refusing to discriminate against your unvaccinated employees. An “egregious violation” could result in a fine higher than $136,000 — for “bad actor employers who willfully disregard” the administration’s unconstitutional demands. This would not only crush businesses and risk putting millions of Americans out of work, but it is an outright attack on our freedom. Immediately after the administration officially released its mandate, The Daily Wire — with the help of Harmeet K. Dhillon of the Dhillon Law Group and Alliance Defending Freedom — filed a lawsuit to challenge it. That case and others eventually worked their way up to the U.S. Supreme Court on an emergency challenge. On January 13th, the Supreme Court ruled 6-3 to halt implementation of the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for large, private employers. No matter what you think about vaccines, this is about your freedom. And we won’t stand by while the government tries to trample our liberties.
