During a recent CNN town hall, Dr. Anthony Fauci claimed that he didn’t understand why all states havent enforced a stay at home order, adding that he won’t discuss the federalism issue with regards to a national order.
According to Breitbart, CNN’s Anderson Cooper asked, “Knowing the science, does it make sense to you that some states are still not issuing stay at home orders? I mean, whether there should be a federally mandated directive for that or not, I guess that’s more of a political question, but just scientifically, doesn’t everybody have to be on the same page with this stuff?”
Fauci replied, “I think so, Anderson. I don’t understand why that’s not happening. As you said, you know, the tension between federally mandated versus states rights to do what they want is something I don’t want to get into. But if you look at what’s going on in this country, I just don’t understand why we’re not doing that. We really should be.”
