On Thursday, Heath and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra addressed the criticism of the White House’s door-to-door vaccination effort.
However, his response was just as George Orwellian as you can imagine.
Becerra told CNN host Brianna Keilar that it is “absolutely” the government’s business to know who has and has not been vaccinated.

“[P]erhaps 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,” he continued. “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. And so it is our business to try to make sure Americans can prosper; Americans can freely associate.”
“Knocking on a door has never been against the law. You don’t have to answer, but we hope you do. Because if you haven’t been vaccinated, we can help dispel some of those rumors you’ve heard and hopefully get you vaccinated,” Becerra added.
So because the government has used our own tax dollars to “keep Americans alive,” that gives them the power to invade our privacy and freedom? I don’t think so.
