As far as Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) is concerned, the Supreme Court only got it half right; DeSantis would liked to have seen the healthcare worker mandate struck down as well.
According to Fox News, DeSantis slammed Supreme Court Justices Roberts and Kavanaugh during a guest appearance on the popular conservative podcast “Ruthless.”
“On the nurse mandate and the doctor mandate, Roberts and Kavanaugh joined with the liberals to allow the nurse mandate,” DeSantis said.
“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, such as in California, are so short-staffed that they’re now allowing vaccinated but COVID-positive employees to go back to work,” Fox News reports.
“So they have COVID-positive people back on, meanwhile the unvaccinated, likely immune through prior infection, healthy nurses are on the sidelines fired,” the Sunshine State governor continued. “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.”
