It’s ‘government business’ who’s vaccinated, HHS head says in defense of ‘door-to-door’ canvassing

Suddenly worried about wasting taxpayer money, Joe Biden’s White House is saying that it’s “absolutely” the government’s prerogative to grill Americans about whether they’ll get vaccinated for COVID-19

Why? Because they’re the ones footing the bill for everyone — every American’s husband, father and guardian.

According to coverage at, Head of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra said on July 8: “The federal government has spent trillions of dollars to try and keep Americans alive during this pandemic.”

The sudden flood of concern for giving Americans something for their tax money comes as the administration that seized power in January launches a new door-knocking initiative to push the coronavirus vaccine.

” … It is absolutely the government’s business, it is taxpayers’ business, if we have to continue to spend money to try and keep people from contracting COVID,” Becerra said. “We hope that they choose to live,” he added darkly, of the disease that kills only a tiny fraction of those who contract it.

Biden announced this week that “COVID-19 surge response teams” would soon be canvassing neighborhoods to promote vaccination to those who have not yet gotten one.

In Arizona, the attorney general is voicing “great alarm” at this plan, saying that the president’s strategy may be a violation of privacy. Mark Brnovich sent a letter to the White House on July 6 slamming Biden for Psaki’s suggestion that the White House may have acquired the medical records of unvaccinated citizens.
