President Joe Biden saw another one of his vaccine mandates blocked by the courts on Tuesday. This time, it was Biden’s mandate for federal contractors.

U.S. District Judge R. Stan Baker ruled that Georgia, and other plaintiffs, “will likely succeed in their claim that the president exceeded the authorization given to him by Congress.”

Biden and his administration are barred from enforcing the mandate in any state, which expands on a Nov. 30 ruling that related to a trio of states.

Biden’s mandate was set to take effect on Jan. 4, 2022.

Idaho Gov. Brad Little said the mandate is temporarily shut down because states “took a stand against (Biden’s) unprecedented government overreach into Americans’ lives and businesses.”

Baker wrote that “in its practical application, it operates as a regulation of public health,” regarding the mandate.

“It will also have a major impact on the economy at large, as it limits contractors’ and members of the workforce’s ability to perform work on federal contracts,” he wrote. “Accordingly, it appears to have vast economic and political significance.”
