When the Joe Biden administration isn’t talking about knock, knock, knocking on your door about the jab, then it’s Xavier Becerra calling out critics over the door-to-door outreach plans and saying yes, the government should know your business and if you’ve gotten the “jab” yet.
Of course, this is usually information you share with your family doctor, or if you’re a liberal, you’ve announced it to the whole planet to get “likes” on social media, because people don’t hug you enough in real life and you’re literally deprived of attention (because maybe no one likes you).
But make no mistake, Joe Biden’s Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra certainly said out loud, for the people in the back, that it is 100% “absolutely the government’s business” to know who has been vaccinated.
It was just the other day that Jen Psaki mentioned the Biden door-to-door plan, referring to it as community outreach to help people get vaccinated if they had trouble – suggesting that, by now, people still can’t figure it out – once again insulting Americans as if they’re incapable of doing things on their own (like getting an ID).
Critics blasted Jen Psaki and the Biden administration, suggesting this is a bit over-the-top, as reported on Daily Wire:
“How about don’t knock on my door,” Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) fired back at the president Tuesday night. “You’re not my parents. You’re the government. Make the vaccine available, and let people be free to choose. Why is that concept so hard for the left?”
Becerra went on CNN Thursday to insist that it “absolutely” is the government’s business but refused to elaborate as to why — other than to cite the pandemic itself, and the government’s decision to spend trillions on handling COVID-19.
“Perhaps we should point out that the federal government has spent trillions of dollars to try to keep Americans alive during this pandemic,” Becerra said, rationalizing the plan by suggesting that Americans have an obligation to the federal government because it passed COVID-19 relief programs and funded a vaccine research project.
“So it is absolutely the government’s business,” Becerra 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.”
It’s nice that the government spent money to get the vaccines made, but their aggressive push could be turning people away from it.
Imagine going to McDonald’s and they say “we made this McRib and you must order it or else” – because that’s basically what the government is doing to Americans right now.
Of course, you wouldn’t have to force me to order the McRib, but the point here is that their aggressive nature and selling of the vaccine has become a turn-off for some people and they need to chill out.
