House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has proposed the next multi-trillion dollar “coronavirus reliefâ spending bill that will support testing, tracing, treatment, isolation, and mask policies that have been part of a ânational strategic planâ she has been advocating. The Trump administration is not opposing Pelosiâs plan on principle. Instead, it is haggling over the price.
But, even if the strategic plan could be implemented at little or no monetary cost, it would still impose an unacceptable cost in lost liberty.
Pelosiâs plan will lead to either a federal mask mandate or federal funding of state and local mask mandate enforcement. Those who resist wearing masks could likely be reported to the authorities by government-funded mask monitors. We can label this the âStasiâ approach to health policy, after the infamous East German secret police force.
Contact tracing could lead to forcing individuals to download a tracing app. The app would record where an individual goes and alert authorities that an individual has been near someone who has tested positive for coronavirus.
The strategic plan could eventually include Bill Gates’ and Anthony Fauciâs suggestion that individuals receive âdigital certificatesâ indicating they are vaccinated for or immune to coronavirus. A certificate would be required before an individual can go to work, to school, or even to the grocery store. The need to demonstrate vaccination for or immunity to coronavirus in order to resume normal life would cause many people to âvoluntarilyâ receive a potentially dangerous coronavirus vaccine.
The Trump administration has already spent billions of dollars to support efforts of companies to develop a coronavirus vaccine. Policymakers have stated that once a vaccine is developed it will be rushed into production and onto the market. Supporters of expediting production and use of a vaccine should remember the 1976 swine flu vaccine debacle. The swine flu vaccine was rushed into production in response to political pressure to âdo something.â The result was a vaccine that was more of a danger than the flu.
