White House press secretary Jen Psaki stated that the government does not support a requirement for the American people to carry vaccine credentials.
I guess trying to pursue rationale for vaccine passports would have required at least SOME sort of logical consistency for them previously denying the requirement of voter identification.
That would have been bad optics on their typical two-faced values, huh?
Then again, we’d have to expect some sort of synchronization between Democratic politicians and honesty to be remotely astonished by this.
“Let me be very clear on this. I know there’s been lots of questions. The government is not now, nor will we be supporting, a system that requires Americans to carry a credential,” she said during the White House press briefing.
“As these tools are being considered by the private and nonprofit sectors, our interest is very simple from the federal government, which is Americans’ privacy and rights should be protected and so that these systems are not used against people unfairly,” she said.
Don’t be fooled. The White House, mainly the Biden Administration, is more than happy to participate in creating a vaccine passport for corporations to utilize.
So basically – “we don’t support vaccine passports… until we solidify a system where we can gain more power from using them.”
There, fixed it.
