80 Republicans Vote with Radical Dems to Pass 'Dangerous' Federal Vaccination Database Bill
This is one of the most dangerous bills in a long time. 80 Republicans voted for it.
The House of Representatives has passed a dangerous bill that would establish a federal vaccination database. Alarmingly, the radical Democrats accomplished this with the help of 80 Republicans, including Minority Leader and Speaker hopeful Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).
"Eighty House Republicans voted with Democrats on Tuesday to pass the Immunization Infrastructure Modernization Act, which if passed by the Senate and signed into law would fund a federal vaccination database," Breitbart reported.
"According to the bill, also called H. R. 550, the government would provide $400 million in taxpayer dollars to fund 'immunization system data modernization and expansion,' a system otherwise defined as 'a confidential, population-based, computerized database that records immunization doses administered by any health care provider to persons within the geographic area covered by that database'," the report noted.
The government bill would spend $400 million on an “immunization system data modernization and expansion,” a system it says is “a confidential, population-based, computerized database that records immunization doses administered by any health care provider to persons within the geographic area covered by that database.”
"The database would allow the government to notify people about when their booster shot are due," one political observer notes. "Although the system is described as confidential, confidential in this case means confidential from the public, until of course records are indiscriminately released like has happened with the IRS, Department of Defense, Veterans Administration, or any number of high-profile government leaks and hacks."
The House Clerk provided the party breakdown: Democrats voted unanimously for the bill (214 Yeas) and 80 Republicans joined them. 130 Republicans voted against the bill.
Critics argue the bill will allow the federal government to track unvaccinated Americans, who could be segregated, targeted, and forced to comply with the vaccination mandates.
The bill has passed to the Senate and was referred to the Senate, read twice, and referred to the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions.
The roll call of the bill provides as good a primary list as Republican primary voters are going to find ahead of the 2022 midterms (links to office addresses and phone numbers are provided below):
Gonzales, Tony (TX)
Herrera Beutler (WA)
The bill's language itself is alarming in its blunt intention to violate Americans' privacy rights, as well as their bodily autonomy rights.
