Dr. Anthony Fauci got a break from Sen. Rand Paul today, but instead he got questioned by Rep. Jim Jordan, who spent several minutes trying to get Fauci to say what level things need to reach for Americans to be able to return to normal. It got heated and Jordan’s question never did really get an answer:

This exchange is one that stands out:
.@Jim_Jordan: "You don't think Americans' liberties have been threatened the last year, Dr. Fauci?"
Fauci: "I don't look at this as a liberty thing… I look at this as a public health thing."
Jordan: "You think the Constitution is suspended during a virus, during a pandemic?" pic.twitter.com/A4lRuFFCPM

FAUCI: "I don't look at this as a liberty thing."
JORDAN: "Well, that's obvious!" pic.twitter.com/XqPot9QIqj

Wow, that escalated quickly!
Americans can have their freedoms back when "90% of the members of Congress get vaccinated"?? Ummmm what? https://t.co/HBdvBqO0sQ

Notice how he can’t give numbers on when to open the economy. If he gives stats of when to open, he has to bring this to an end and he doesn’t want that.

It's a simple question: What's the number?
He doesn't have one because they never want it to end.

Clearly can’t define when or what number he is looking to achieve… if we do not have clear goals from leadership, then it is time to change leadership.
