Fauci: To Hell With Federalism

Anderson Cooper asked, “Knowing the science, does it make sense to you that some states are still not issuing stay at home orders? I mean, whether there should be a federally mandated directive for that or not, I guess that’s more of a political question, but just scientifically, doesn’t everybody have to be on the same page with this stuff?”

Fauci responded, “I think so, Anderson. I don’t understand why that’s not happening. As you said, you know, the tension between federally mandated versus states rights to do what they want is something I don’t want to get into. But if you look at what’s going on in this country, I just don’t understand why we’re not doing that. We really should be.” [story here]


Here’s a question, Dr. Fauci: If stay-at-home orders are so essential, then why are the states without them doing no worse than the states with them? Here are two more questions: What’s the justification for sending our economy into a massive, unprecedented depression (as opposed to a slowdown) because you want several years to come up with a vaccine for a flu virus? And what about the Bill of Rights?

This is what we get for putting a career government doctor in charge of the entire world. Indefinitely.
