President Joe Biden got some bad news from a federal judge on Monday when his COVID-19 vaccine mandate for health workers employed at hospitals that get federal funding was temporarily blocked in 10 states.

Daily Mail reported that this ruling was made by U.S. District Judge Matthew Schelp, who was appointed by Donald Trump, and that it affects the following ten states: Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming.

“The scale falls clearly in favor of healthcare facilities operating with some unvaccinated employees, staff, trainees, students, volunteers and contractors, rather than the swift, irremediable impact of requiring healthcare facilities to choose between two undesirable choices — providing substandard care or providing no healthcare at all,” Schelp said in his ruling.

Schelp added that these mandates that were put in place by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid were improperly issued.

“Truly, the impact of this mandate reaches far beyond COVID,” Schelp wrote, according to the Springfield News Leader. “CMS seeks to overtake an area of traditional state authority by imposing an unprecedented demand to federally dictate the private medical decisions of millions of Americans. Such action challenges traditional notions of federalism.”

Not stopping there, Schelp went on to describe the mandate as “arbitrary and capricious,” arguing that CMS “lacks evidence showing that vaccination status has a direct impact on spreading COVID” in the hospitals.

“No one questions that protecting patients and health care workers from contracting COVID is a laudable objective,” the judge continued. “But the court cannot, in good faith, allow CMS to enact an unprecedented mandate that lacks a ‘rational connection between the facts found and the choice made.'”

This lawsuit was led by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, who is running for U.S. Senate. He described the ruling as a “huge victory for health care workers in Missouri and across the country, including rural hospitals who were facing near certain collapse due to this mandate.”

The Kansas City Star reported that White House press secretary Jen Psaki has already fired back at the ruling by calling on health care companies to mandate vaccination on their own.

“We’re obviously going to abide by the law and fight any efforts in court or otherwise to prevent local authorities, officials, leaders in the health care industry and other industries from protecting their workforces,” Psaki said. “Individual companies and health care leaders and others can put in place requirements in order to protect their workforce. That’s something that a number of companies, a number of health care providers across the country have done and done successfully.”

Red Voice Media would like to make a point of clarification on why we do not refer to any shot related to COVID-19 as a "vaccine." According to the CDC, the definition of a vaccine necessitates that said vaccine have a lasting effect of at least one year in preventing the contraction of the virus or disease it's intended to fight. Because all of the COVID-19 shots thus far available have barely offered six months of protection, and even then not absolute, Red Voice Media has made the decision hereafter to no longer refer to the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson substances as vaccinations.
