CDC Overhaul?

| Posted in Blog
CDC

Last week, the CDC Director finally stated the obvious. During an interview, Rochelle Walensky said her agency mishandled significant parts of its responsibilities during Covid, and an overhaul of that agency is now needed. You think?! Where do we begin with this? We’re talking about an agency that recommended masks for TWO-YEAR-OLD children, despite studies indicating their…

Statement on World Health Organization

| Posted in Blog

My office has received many calls and emails this week concerning the World Health Organization (WHO). Actually if I’m being honest, “many” is an understatement. Literally hundreds of you have reached out and I sincerely appreciate it. For those who just want to confirm my position: I am STRONGLY opposed to this effort and plan on fighting against it at every turn. For those who aren’t…

Mask Mandates for Air Travel

| Posted in Blog

If you’re wondering when the Biden Administration will back off mask mandates for air travel, the answer is sometime before the November election. I don’t mean to sound flippant about it, but that’s the answer. At some strategic, well-choreographed moment between now and November, unelected government bureaucrats at the CDC will unravel that agency’s mask guidelines for air travel. And…

One Missed Opportunity After Another

| Posted in Blog

Did any of you watch the State of the Union earlier tonight? It was a spin job like no other. Not to beat a dead horse, but inflation is at a 40 year high under Biden's watch. His policies have enabled & encouraged more than 2 million people to illegally cross our border in the last year. Violent crime is rising. We're now $30 trillion in national debt, while he wants trillions more…

Good News on Omicron

| Posted in Blog

Good news: data shows Omicron is fading fast. Infection rates are down sharply. Hospitalizations for Covid are also dropping. Deaths seem to have plateaued and should hopefully start falling soon. This is excellent news. It’s also great to see liberal states like Oregon, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Delaware lifting mask mandates for school children. Even California, the bastion of…

The FDA Should Correct Its Guidance

| Posted in Blog

Recent guidance from the FDA seems highly unethical. Let me start by posing a question: All things being equal, should someone’s race or ethnicity afford them preferential treatment for Covid medications? Here’s an example… Let’s say there were two people, both with Covid, both contracting it around the same time, both with the exact same symptoms and severity, both of the same age and…

Two Important Pieces This Week

| Posted in Blog

Here’s a quick recap of two important pieces of news this week: FIRST, the Supreme Court slapped down Biden’s vaccine mandate yesterday. The President was trying to implement this through OSHA (the Occupational Safety & Health Administration), which would have affected more than 80 million American workers and placed massive compliance burdens on countless businesses. The Court was…

Supreme Court Rules Against OSHA

| Posted in Blog

Great news just minutes ago from the Supreme Court, which BLOCKED Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandate for large employers. This affects around 80 million Americans who work for larger companies. President Biden was trying to use OSHA (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration) to enact this mandate. Fortunately, the Supreme Court halted that misguided order just moments…
