JEFFERSON CITY, Mo – Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt is putting the full weight of the Attorney General’s Office behind opposing President Joe Biden and congressional democrats with multiple lawsuits.
Biden lost Missouri in the 2020 presidential election in a landslide by 15.4%, so it comes as no surprise that his actions are opposed by Missouri’s Attorney General.
Schmitt joined several other states in suing the Biden Administration this week for the shutdown of the Keystone XL pipeline. The lawsuit comes after thousands of jobs were lost due to the shutdown and many concerns about the legality of Biden making the decision unilaterally without consulting Congress.
Schmitt also joined Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost and 17 other states in filing a motion to prevent taxpayers from funding abortions through the Title X program.
The Title X program provides family planning services for low-income individuals. However, according to Schmitt and the several states involved in the suit, abortions do not fall under that category.
On Tuesday, Schmitt joined twenty other Republican attorneys general in threatening the Biden Administration over a significant measure in the recent stimulus plan.
The states involved claim the $350 billion measure for state, local and tribal governments will prevent states from delivering tax cuts. They warned that preventing states from lowering taxes is “the greatest attempted invasion of state sovereignty by Congress in the history of our Republic.”
Other efforts include challenging an executive order by Biden that Schmitt said is “perhaps the broadest expansion of federal regulation we’ve ever seen,” and attacking Biden for the border crisis that continues to worsen.
