Health Secretary Becerra: ‘It’s absolutely the government’s business’ whether or not you’ve been vaccinated

U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra is attempting to justify Joe Biden’s idea of deploying vaccine monitors to go door to door to increase jab compliance.

Becerra, a career Democrat politician and lawyer went on CNN this morning to share the following insight when anchor Brianna Keilar brought up the intense criticism coming from Republicans that the government has no business snooping into individual health-related decisions.

“Perhaps we should point out that the federal government has spent trillions of dollars to try to keep Americans alive during this pandemic. So it is absolutely the government’s business. It is taxpayers’ business if we have to continue to spend money to try to keep people from contracting COVID and helping reopen the economy,” he claimed.

“And so it is our business to try to make sure Americans can prosper, Americans can freely associate. And knocking on a door has never been against the law. You don’t have to answer, but we hope you do, because you haven’t been vaccinated, we can help dispel some of those rumors you’ve heard and hopefully get you vaccinated.”

Watch:

Becerra hails from California, a state where oppressive lockdowns hardly contributed to helping residents prosper, and is headed toward a recall election of Governor Newsom.

The COVID-19 vaccine has yet to receive FDA approval. Moreover, health freedom is a time-honored principle in the U.S. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and was enacted, in part, to protect medical privacy.

Like various traditions, particularly in the last year or so, that revolve around individual freedom, this one may be heading toward abandonment.

When it comes to vaccine mandates, Fox News Host Tucker Carlson recently compared the situation to what is portrayed in the dystopian novel “The Handmaid’s Tale”.

That aside, Becerra’s whole-hearted backing of government intrusion prompted a robust response on Twitter. Here is just a sampling: (** Language warning)
