In an exclusive memo shared with Breitbart News, Republican Study Committee (RSC) Chairman Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) says Congress must prioritize holding Fauci and public health bureaucrats accountable for overreaching during the pandemic.
“If Congress fails to hold the Fauci clique accountable, and fails to reform public health agencies, we will be giving far-left bureaucrats a blank check to shut the country down whenever they want to,” Banks told Breitbart News. “We need to send a message that the restrictions, the mandates and the school closures can never happen again.”
The Republican Study Committee memo stresses that “trust in the public health bureaucracy is at a historic low, and … public health bureaucrats weaponized the public health bureaucracy to advance leftist policy goals.”
For years, the Left has been using ‘public health’ as an excuse to advance its radical agenda,” the memo explained.
“Republicans are poised to take back the House majority next year, and Banks’s memo could serve as a roadmap on how to rein in the NIH, CDC, and other unaccountable public health bureaucracies in the federal government. Banks said Congress could use the purse strings to defund woke spending at the agencies and oversight to hold public health officials accountable,” Breitbart reports.
“The RSC [memo] said that the breadth of public health has expanded to include nontraditional policy issues from ‘racism to policing to gun rights to the minimum wage,’” Breitbart continues.
The RSC detailed:
These arguments aren’t solely those of fringe ideologues. They’ve found political safe-haven in the Biden administration, which has publicly endorsed the idea of “racism as a public health threat.” Dr. Anthony Fauci reiterated this point, claiming racism has an “undeniable” impact on health outcomes. In two separate ExecutiveOrders (EOs) in his first week in office, the administration extended the reach of public health as far as it could. The first order, citing public health in its title, tackled everything from restoring national monuments to revoking the Keystone XL pipeline. The order, however, fails to even mention the pandemic, or any other actual public health issues. Instead, it simply takes the notion that climate change is a public health issue for granted. The second EO required almost every Federal agency to put climate change at the top of its agenda.
