During a recent appearance on conservative podcast Ruthless, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis accused Supreme Court Justices Roberts and Kavanaugh of having ‘no backbone’ for ruling with the liberal justices on the healthcare worker mandate decision.
“The Court ruled that Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra did have the authority to require all health care workers at institutions that receive Medicare and Medicaid funding to get the jab, unless they get medical or religious exemptions,” Fox News reports.
“Healthcare facilities that wish to participate in Medicare and Medicaid have always been obligated to satisfy a host of conditions that address the safe and effective provision of healthcare, not simply sound accounting,” the court noted.
Governor DeSantis thinks this is ridiculous.
“So here’s what’s going on, think about how insane this is,” he continued. “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.”
DeSantis noted that some hospitals are so short-staffed due to strict COVID regulations, that they’re now allowing vaccinated but COVID-positive employees to go back to work.
“So they have COVID-positive people back on, meanwhile the unvaccinated, likely immune through prior infection, healthy nurses are on the sidelines fired. How insane are these policies?”
“But honestly, Roberts and Kavanaugh did not have a backbone on that decision,” DeSantis also said. “That’s just the bottom line.”
