Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis lambasted Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and John Roberts as having no 'backbone' as they sided with liberal justices to uphold President Biden's vaccine mandate for healthcare workers. 

The Supreme Court on Thursday released a highly anticipated decision blocking Biden's mandate ordering businesses with 100 or more employees to require vaccination or weekly testing. The high court however allowed a mandate requiring that facilities that receive federal funding to tell employees to get vaccinated.  

'On the nurse mandate and the doctor mandate, Roberts and Kavanaugh joined with the liberals to allow the nurse mandate,' DeSantis said during a guest appearance on the 'Ruthless' podcast on Friday. 

'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.' 

Chief Justice John Roberts

Justice Brett Kavanaugh

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said that Justices John Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh had 'no backbone' for deciding to allow Biden's healthcare vaccine mandate 

The court ruled 6-3 to turn down the federal mandate for private employers, 5-4 to allow the mandate for federally funded healthcare facilities to remain in place.

The court's decision is not the final say on the healthcare mandate - 27 states had petitioned the Supreme Court to issue a stay on the rule while it is battled out in lower courts. 

DeSantis noted that hospitals in places like California are allowing Covid-positive nurses to return to work due to short staffing. 

'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.'
