The Supreme Court, vaccination and government by Fox News

Andrew Koppelman

Suppose Congress passed a law commanding the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to prevent deadly dangers in the workplace, and to act quickly if those dangers arise unexpectedly. And then suppose the Supreme Court declared that the bigger the emergency is, the less power OSHA has. OSHA can move fast to prevent a few bad injuries, but not if hundreds of thousands are dying.

That is, in essence, what the Supreme Court said yesterday, for reasons that threaten to merge Fox News with the US Reports.  I explain in my latest column at The Hill.
