Joe Biden had hoped that the Supreme Court would push the case to the top of the list.
Instead, while the justices agreed to take the case, they pushed it all the way to the back of the line.
Arguments will not be heard until February.
The attorneys general of Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and South Carolina filed the initial suit.
In what was also surely a bit of a shock to Biden, the rule will now be able to remain in place until the hearing is made, as we have seen in other cases.
Instead, Biden’s order will remain on the sidelines until the case is heard, so everything must come to a screaming halt right now.
Biden had signed the order using the COVID pandemic as cover, but this was a Democrat issue long before COVID and everyone knows it.
At the same time Biden was using COVID to push this order through, he was on “60 Minutes” declaring to everyone that the pandemic was over.
Judge Mark Pittman had struck down the initial order.
When Pittman struck the order down, he wrote, “In this country, we are not ruled by an all-powerful executive with a pen and a phone. Instead, we are ruled by a Constitution that provides for three distinct and independent branches of government.”
When it went to appeal, the three-judge panel voted unanimously to leave the injunction against the order in place.
What was so noteworthy in that case was that the judges were from three different presidents, two of whom that had been very friendly to Democrat policy to that point, so hope is not running high on Biden being able to get his order to hold up.
I have maintained all along that COVID or not, Biden does not have the authority to issue an order of such financial magnitude.
