House Rep. Jim Jordan slammed Dr. Fauci in a meeting with the House Judiciary Committee after the disease expert refused to give any specific metric as to when Americans can expect the country to return to pre-pandemic life. Jordan said that American’s First Amendment liberties were basically paused over the last year and Fauci claimed it isn’t a “liberty thing.” As Jordan fiercely defended American freedoms the flip-flopping Fauci struggled to piece together a coherent argument against him.
“When do Americans get their freedom back?” Jordan asked.
“When we get the level of infection in this country low enough that it’s not really a high…” Fauci responded.
“What is low enough? Give me a number. We had 15 days to slow the spread that turned into a year of lost liberty. What metrics, what measures, what has to happen before Americans get more freedom?” Jordan followed up.
“My message Congressman Jordan is to get as many people vaccinated as quickly as we possibly can to get the level of infection in this country low, that it is no longer a threat. That is when,” Fauci said. “I don’t look at this as a liberty thing Congressman Jordan. I look at this as a public health thing. I disagree with you on that completely.”
