In December 2021, mainstream media devoted effort in reporting how all House Democrats voted in favor of a bill called the Immunization Infrastructure Modernization Act.
Some mentioned that four House Republicans, including Reps. Larry Bucshon (R-IN), James Baird (R-IN), David McKinley (R-WV), and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), co-sponsored the bill, and some 80 House Republicans voted in favor of its passage.
Buried or eliminated in corporate media, was the warning to America by Rep. Mary Miller (R-IL):
These systems are designed to allow for the sharing of crucial information and maintenance of records. Do we really trust the government to protect our medical records? The bill’s author even bragged in her press release that these systems will help the government remind patients when they are due for a recommended vaccine and identify areas with low vaccination rates to ensure equitable distribution of vaccines. This was clearly a legislative tool to enforce vaccine mandates and force their Orwellian rules onto those who do not comply.
Rep. Byron Donald (R-FL), argued that the bill is a violation of the “fundamental right to medical privacy.” He said:
This legislation would unnecessarily appropriate millions of taxpayer funds intended to expand bureaucracy in Washington. A database solely created to record and collect confidential vaccination information of Americans explicitly encroaches upon individuals’ fundamental right to medical privacy. As a fiscal conservative, I cannot in good faith support legislation that contributes to the Democrats’ habitual pattern of reckless and wasteful spending and the intrusive heavy hand of government.
“This bill is another attempt by House Democrats to extend their government overreach by tracking unvaccinated individuals and recording personal health decisions made by the American people,” said Congressman Jefferson Van Drew (R-NJ). “There is no reason that $400 million in taxpayer dollars should be used to fund a program that creates a database to store citizens private medical information regarding vaccination status. This majority in Congress is doing everything in their power to seize control of Americans and exert federal control in every aspect of our daily lives. We see time and time again Democrats wasting taxpayer dollars on legislation like this; instead, they should be focused on issues affecting every American, like soaring gas prices, rapid inflation, the supply chain crisis, and the labor shortage. As legislators, we should be ensuring Americans are able to put food on the table and that shelves are stocked for the holidays, not spending more money to create an unnecessary and useless program.”
