(FreedomBeacon.com)- Dr. Ben Carson, the famed neurosurgeon and former Republican presidential candidate who went on to become President Donald Trump’s Secretary for Housing and Urban Development, recently expressed his disappointment at 80 House Republicans who recently voted with House Democrats to expand state databases on vaccines.
Carson told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo that the movie will be “used for other things” and that it is expanding surveillance over the American people.
“We have got to be smart enough to recognize these signs when we see them and stop them, to nip them in the bud before it becomes too late,” he said, adding that it doesn’t take much to change a nation.
Carson was referring to H.R. 550, a bill that didn’t even receive a hearing in the House of Representatives and has now been passed over to the Senate where it is being considered and will be voted on. If the legislation passes, it would give more power to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to connect vaccinate databases in each state and then use that information to track which Americans have received the vaccine…and who hasn’t received the vaccine.
Republicans who voted for the legislation in the House justified their decision by saying that it is actually just a “routine program” for which they trimmed down funding from $500 million to $400 million.
Hardly a great excuse, is it?
“Governments have a tendency to grow, to infiltrate, and to control,” Carson told Fox, adding that this can easily happen when either Democrats or Republicans are in control.
Boy, we miss Carson in government. Don’t you?
