A secret audio tape revealed a shocking truth that Joe Biden doesn’t want anyone to know
There is a growing voter backlash to Joe Biden’s failing Presidency.
But it’s about to get worse.
And this secret audio tape revealed a shocking truth that Joe Biden doesn’t want anyone to know.
Reason’s Robbie Soave obtained audio of Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Director Doctor Rochelle Walensky testifying before the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
In her testimony, Dr. Walensky made it clear that the Biden administration would continue to push masks in school as the government’s recommendation.
“The CDC provides guidance,” Dr. Walensky said. “Our guidance currently is that masking should happen in all schools right now.”
Washington Republican Cathy McMorris Rogers pushed back, noting that the U.S. was the only western nation that forcibly masked children in schools.
Congresswoman McMorris Rogers also grilled Walensky on the study the CDC used out of Arizona to justify forced masking of kids as flawed.
Walensky admitted as much, but also refused to back down on masks.
“They all have limitations, and that’s important to recognize because we are not randomizing schools,” Dr Walensky responded. “We have to control for whether there are windows, ventilation, and other activities happening outside of these schools. So all of these studies have limitations. But they are for the most part uniformly pointing to the fact that when there’s a lot of disease out there, the masks are preventing that disease and preventing that transmission and because of that we are able to keep our schools open.”
There is one reason and one reason only that the Biden administration is still recommending mask mandates in schools.
And that is because of the teachers union.
The teachers union is the single most powerful constituency in Democrat Party politics.
Union boss Randi Weingarten was responsible for schools closing for more than a year.
And Randi Weingarten is also responsible for masks in schools.
When the Biden administration took office, the CDC essentially let the teachers union write the guidance for reopening schools.
And, of course, it was as restrictive as possible.
Randi Weingarten recently outlined her criteria for when the teachers union would support an end to mask mandates: and that is when there is no COVID transmission.
Of course, that is impossible.
Zero COVID is a fantasy.
But Democrats cannot move on mask mandates until the teachers union gives them permission.
Voters in New Jersey and Virginia punished Democrats last November over school closures and mask mandates.
The longer school mask mandates are in place, the bigger the wave building against Democrats this November.
