One of the ideas that would seem the most obvious, if you want democracy to flourish in a nation (and the Democrats keep telling you that they’re just trying to “protect” democracy with all of their wrong-headed ideas), is the concept of transparency in the government. If the government really works for the people, shouldn’t the people know what is going on?
But politicians (especially Democrats) don’t want transparency because, then, they’d have to answer to the American people for their corruption. Or their hypocrisy.
I’m guessing that today’s story has to do with hiding their hypocrisy. Tom Ozimek writes,
The White House on Friday refused to release the number of COVID-19 infections among vaccinated staff, known as breakthrough cases, after one aide tested positive earlier last week and some reporters pressed for greater disclosure.
Speaking at a press briefing, press secretary Jen Psaki was asked whether the White House was “trying to hide something” by not disclosing the number of breakthrough cases among vaccinated White House staff.
“No, but why do you need to have that information?” Psaki replied.
“Transparency, in the interest of the public, having a better understanding of how breakthrough cases work here in the White House,” the reporter responded.
Amid the contentious exchange, Psaki pointed to efforts by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to track breakthrough cases of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, the pathogen that causes the disease COVID-19.
“There’s a range of means our public health officials are tracking—across the country, across D.C., across any individuals here—about who is vaccinated, who is getting the virus, getting hospitalized,” she said, adding, “it remains a small percentage.”
You know, in any other employment situation, the employer would know this type of information about their employees, and, as taxpayers, people on the government payroll work for us. So, we should be given this information.
So, we should all be asking: What is the Biden administration hiding?
