Xavier Becerra, the Health and Human Services Secretary for Uncle Joe’s administration, spoke out against critics who were talking about Uncle Joe’s plan to go door-to-door seeking to promote the COVID-19 vaccine. He heavily insisted that it is “absolutely the government’s business” to step into your life and know whether you have done what they want or not.
Earlier this week, Old Uncle Joe’s administration issued an announcement that they would be sending out groups that they are calling “strike forces” and giving them the mission to go “door-to-door” in order to try and convince the citizens that are vaccine-hesitant to go out and get the vaccine. While speaking out at a press conference, Biden lauded the idea as a community-by-community push for public health: “Now, we need to go to community-by-community, neighborhood-by-neighborhood, and oftentimes, door-to-door — literally knocking on doors — to get help to the remaining people protected from the virus.”
However, the whole plan has seen strong and violent criticism all over social media platforms and more directly from Republican lawmakers, who put Uncle Joe’s administration on notice for believing that it is the role of the government to manage and log each private citizen’s personal healthcare choices.
“How about don’t knock on my door,” stated Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) aimed at Uncle Joe this past Tuesday evening. “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?”
While on CNN this past Thursday, Becerra insisted that it “absolutely” is the job of the government to manage this, but refused to continue when asked to elaborate as to why. His only response was to cite the pandemic itself, and the government’s idea that it had to spend trillions on projects to try and handle 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,” stated Becerra in an attempt to rationalize the plan by stating that Americans have an outright obligation to Uncle Joe’s administration due to the COVID-19 relief programs that they had passed and the vaccine project they had funded.
“So it is absolutely the government’s business,” continued Becerra. “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.”
Becerra went on to add that “knocking on a door has never been against the law” and suggested that Americans who are against such a thing should just not answer the door at all.
“[They] don’t have to answer. But we hope you do” the man concluded.
