Posted on 04/27/2022 6:21:01 PM PDT by ChicagoConservative27
On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg stated that “most of us understand the difference between a hotel ballroom” where the White House Correspondents’ Dinner will be held without a mask mandate and airplanes and that the main purpose behind the Biden administration’s appeal of the transportation mask mandate ruling is “making sure there’s clarity on the public health authority that the CDC has.”

I hope 50 of them come down with it. Crowds is one of those pass it on venues.
Government by the government, of the government, and for the government.
More about clarity of power than about public health. Got it.
There is no better circulated and filtered air than in a plane.
I’m a bit confused, my understanding was that the CDC has no power to enforce anything, just make recommendations. Anyone?…
It’s about obtaining legal charity for marxist authoritarian rule.
Excuse me Mr. Buttigieg, but where in the Constitution is the Federal government and its offspring, the CDC, given the power to tell the American people what they must wear and where and when they must wear it?
Haven’t we always had the Fashion PoPo?
Unless you are completely morally bankrupt every which way from Sunday and just plain evil with nothing but lust to have Complete Control over your fellow man. How do you even make an argument that the CDC should have power the US Government doesn’t even have???
Sorry Pete, the CDC has lost all credibility.
Does that mean due to court cases that have gone their way they have power?
Like Stare Decisis?
Using a politicized CDC as a “non partisan” alibi to wage an economic war on Americans should clearly indicate that the CDC should not make laws.
Man, Biden is unpopular but if his admin successfully SUES to force masks on travelers after they were taken away finally ... is he trying to get to single digits? Or is he just showing us that he doesn’t give a damn what we think or the upcoming election, which would suggest it’s already decided in the dems favor in the back rooms of DC?
“Guidance” is apparently stronger than “recommendations”.
This must not come as a surprise. One big reason the Left loves the Democratic party is because they share a belief that the business of governing the proles is too complex for non “experts” to tackle. Legislation is just too messy.
He should stick to just being a queer mom and leave everyone else alone....
Does guidance mean destroy people’s lives for two years?
