Following is a portion of Dr. Fauci’s testimony during a House subcommittee on the China Virus. Rep. Jim Jordan finally called out Dr. Fauci for attacking our civil liberties.
“When is the time?” Jordan asked. “When do Americans get their freedom back?”
“When we get the level of infection in this country low enough that it is not a really high threat,” Fauci said. Jordan continued to ask for specifics as far as what level would be deemed low enough.
“What is low enough? Give me a number … what metrics, what measures, what has to happen before Americans get their freedoms?” he asked.
Fauci replied that his message was to make sure as many Americans as possible get vaccinated quickly “to get the level of infection in this country low that it is no longer a threat.”
“That is when,” he answered.
Jordan, not satisfied with the response, asked Fauci what determines when that level is reached.
“What outcome do we have to reach before Americans get their liberty and freedoms back?” he asked.
“You don’t think Americans’ liberties have been threatened the last year, Dr. Fauci?” Jordan asked, raising his voice. “They’ve been assaulted!”
“I don’t look at this as a liberty thing, Congressman Jordan, I look at this as a public health thing,” Fauci said. “I disagree with you on that completely.”
