A Judge Doing His Job

NewsMax posted an article today about a decision by a Louisiana federal judge.

The article reports:

President Joe Biden cannot require teachers in the Head Start early education program to be vaccinated against COVID-19, a Louisiana federal judge ruled Saturday, handing a victory to 24 states that had sued the federal government.

U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty wrote that the Biden administration unlawfully bypassed Congress when ordering that workers in Head Start programs be vaccinated by Jan. 31 and that students 2 years or older be masked when indoors or when in close contact outdoors.

The article concludes:

It was not immediately clear whether the federal government would appeal the decision to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.

Doughty’s ruling is similar to a Friday ruling in which a federal judge also blocked the Head Start mandate in Texas.

Saturday’s ruling affects Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Wyoming and West Virginia.

None of the vaccine mandates or mask mandates have passed through the normal legislative process. Until they do, and our congressmen go on record as to whether or not they support them, these mandates should not become law. We have reached the point in our representative republic where our normal legislative process is being ignored and laws are being made by un-elected bureaucrats in federal agencies. That is not the way our Constitution states that laws should be made.

For those of us who need a refresher course, here is a Schoolhouse Rock video to explain the process:
