The Biden administration is quickly proving to be one of the most authoritarian and dangerous administrations in modern history.
On Tuesday, President Joe Biden announced that he was launching a coronavirus vaccination campaign where American citizens would be visited by strangers to urge them to take the COVID-19 vaccine.
“Now we need to go community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood and often times door-to-door- literally knocking on doors, to get help to the remaining people protected from the virus,” Biden said.
The announcement was met with fierce backlash considering the vaccination campaign seems like something that would happen under a Communist regime.
Instead of walking back on their door-to-door vaccination campaign, the Biden administration is doubling down.
During an interview with CNN on Thursday, Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra asserted that it is “absolutely the government’s business” to know which American citizens are vaccinated or not.
Yahoo News reports:
His comments were made in response to the host’s reading of a tweet by Republican Representative Andy Biggs, who wrote that the government should not survey the population and be privy to know who is and who is not inoculated.
Biggs and other Republican lawmakers’ criticisms came after White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said during a recent press briefing that the Biden administration might resort to “knocking on doors” to pressure those who have abstained from vaccination to receive the shot. The administration, confronting a missed vaccination goal to get 70% of adults vaccinated by the Fourth of July, has been getting innovative with strategies and incentives to persuade the hesitant, especially young adults, of the vaccine’s merits.
Becerra offered that the massive government-incurred cost of managing COVID and the subsequent economic crisis justifies keeping tabs on which citizens have been vaccinated.
“The federal government has spent trillions of dollars to keep Americans alive during this pandemic, so it is absolutely the government’s business, it is taxpayer’s business if we have to keep trying to spend money to keep people from contracting COVID and helping reopen the economy,” Becerra said.
“It is our business to make sure Americans can prosper, freely associate, and knocking on the door has never been against the law. You don’t have to answer, but we hope you do so we can help dispel some of those rumors that you’ve heard and hopefully get you vaccinated,” Becerra continued.

He was then asked if he is a supporter of government vaccine requirements.
“The president has demonstrated that he is open to moving in any direction we can to help Americans get safe, feel safe,” Becerra said. “We’ll continue to provide Americans access. We’re gonna go where you are, so you can get vaccinated.”
