BREAKING BIG: Federal Judge Terry Doughty has enjoined the CMS vaccine

A federal court in Missouri has halted Joe Biden ’ s vaccine mandate for workers in Medicare-certified medical facilities in 10 states on Monday. Judge Matthew Schelp of the Eastern District of Missouri granted the preliminary injunction for healthcare workers at Medicare-certified facilities in Alaska “In conclusion, CMS [Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services] mandate raises substantial questions of law and fact that must be determined, as discussed throughout this opinion,” Schelp wrote. “Because it is evident CMS significantly understates the burden that its mandate would impose on the ability of

The mandate would require employees of federal contractors to be fully vaccinated against COVID by Jan. 4.

"The question presented here is narrow," Van Tatenhove wrote in his ruling. "Can the president use congressionally delegated authority to manage the federal procurement of goods and services to impose vaccines on the employees of federal contractors and subcontractors?

"The judge's opinion clearly states that, and it has been our position all along that the president cannot impose these mandates on the people."

A judge blocked the federal government on Monday from mandating COVID-19 vaccinations for health care workers in ten states. According to USA Today, U. S . District Judge Matthew Schelp in the Eastern District of Missouri wrote in his ruling that regulations handed down by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid The agency did not get approval from Congress to mandate vaccinations for health care workers, Schelp wrote, which he argued was necessary given the mandate ’ s “vast economic and political significance.” The rules were also issued without a standard period for public comment, which

The ruling comes amid a tumultuous few days for Biden's vaccine mandates, as Van Tatenhove's ruling became the third since Monday morning to slow one of the several mandates being challenged in courts across the country.
