Missouri’s Attorney General’s office is arguing in front of the U-S Supreme Court this morning.

Ashley Byrd reports:

The United States Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on Missouri and Louisiana’s lawsuits against the Biden Administration’s mandatory COVID-19 vaccines on health care workers.

They are likely to decide whether or not to continue to block a federal rule that requires all health care workers at facilities that participate in Medicare and Medicaid programs to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 — except for a medical or religious exemption.

Deputy Attorney General Jesus Osete will argue the case for the AG’s office.

Attorney General Eric Schmitt calls this a historic and consequential case – arguing that in Missouri, rural hospitals, nursing homes, and health care organizations are facing staffing shortages as it is, and forcing their employees to get vaccinated could potentially lead to their collapse

The oral arguments in Biden v. Missouri and Becerra v. Louisiana will be heard today (Friday) at 10:00 AM CT and will be streamed live on the SCOTUS website.
