Schmitt told Fox News he is hopeful that he and the other plaintiffs in Biden v. Missouri and Becerra v. Louisiana will be successful in neutering Biden’s assumed power that he believes allows the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to mandate workers inject themselves with a vaccine as a stipulation of employment.
“I think this is one of the most consequential cases the Supreme Court has ever heard,” Schmitt told “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“Especially if you care about individual liberty and personal freedom. It comes down to the central question, can unelected bureaucrats without any constitutional or statutory authority force a medical procedure on 100 million Americans? The answer should be no.”
Schmitt said if Biden and Health & Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra are successful, “there is no limiting principle” on them or OSHA.
He theorized that Biden could move next to declare global warming a COVID-like emergency, and then enforce his will on Americans through USDOT or another agency.
“[Biden could] weaponize them, and they can tell you what you can drive — and when you can drive and how long” to protect against that particular crisis, Schmitt said.
