Press Release: Little, Wasden Praise Win on OSHA Vaccine Mandate Strike Down at U.S. Supreme Court

By • January 13, 2022

The following Press Release was sent out by Governor Brad Little. Note: Press Releases sent out by elected officials do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of those at the Idaho Dispatch.

(Boise, Idaho) – Governor Brad Little and Attorney General Lawrence Wasden issued the following joint statement praising the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling today striking down President Joe Biden’s overreaching OSHA vaccine mandate on private businesses with 100 or more employees. The Court narrowly upheld Biden’s vaccine mandate for healthcare workers, which affects 17 million Americans at facilities that use the Medicare and Medicaid system.

 “Idaho was quick to join other states in challenging Biden’s unprecedented government overreach into the lives of 84 million American workers with his OSHA vaccine mandate on private business. The states’ actions led to the highest Court’s ruling today upholding Americans’ freedoms, and it affirms our position that the government cannot wield such power in private sector decisions. Living in a capitalist society means giving businesses the independence to manage their workers as they see fit. We are disappointed the Court narrowly upheld Biden’s vaccine mandate on healthcare workers because it intensifies a problem confronting our country – we already have a short supply of healthcare workers available to handle the pandemic. We will continue to hold the line on our third lawsuit challenging Biden’s vaccine mandate for federal contractors, which for now is stayed in the courts, and we will remain vigilant and aggressive in defending Idahoans and Idaho businesses from future attempts at federal overreach in whatever form,” Governor Little and Attorney General Wasden said.

  1. And yet you two clowns won’t lift a finger in the State of Idaho to protect the People’s Freedoms and Constitutional Rights against illegal executive actions, mandates or actions by both public and private employers.

    Spare us the BS and simply resign.

    1. While I agree with your assessment and desired outcome, I think we all know that a resignation from “Accomplished” Little is not in the offing. This is just one more in the ever-growing list of so-called press releases that are filled with self-serving, poorly disguised campaign posturing from the current occupant of the governor’s office. His actions speak so loudly that we cannot hear a word he’s saying.

      I sincerely hope that Idaho sees through the smoke and mirrors on the day the polls open and show this individual the left foot of fellowship…

      1. Right there with the both of you! However, he won’t go quietly, why would he? He’s got it made, sitting in his chair, making up his own rules and doing what he feels like doing, all the while getting paid for it!
        Each day I hope that people see the light, but I fear we will only see the same people getting elected again.

    2. Couldn’t agree more. Their efforts for Idaho citizens has been very little.
      Just remember it is not your vote but who counts the vote. They will be bringing on the Dominion Voting Machines.

  2. He is a bag of wind! Always slapping his own back. He will not have my VOTE. Voters please do your research and pick a GOVERNOR for “ WE THE PEOPLE “.

  3. Both of these men work for IACI, the largest lobby group in Idaho. St. Lukes and St. Al’s are part of IACI. They are NOT working for the people of Idaho, regardless of what they try to “portray”.

  4. Elections are not far away. They have got to produce something to help convince voters that they are not the useless politicians that they really are.
