Biden’s mandate has just seen another successful challenge, yet it too has had its own legal victories.
The state continues to be a bastion of freedom amid Covid hysteria, and that’s probably why people are flocking to the state in droves…
According to reports, a federal court has blocked the mandate in Florida, at least for now…
The ultimate legal fate of the mandate will be decided by SCOTUS, but the civil and sociopolitical turmoil that will likely arise if SCOTUS votes to uphold Biden’s mandate will likely be significant.
