Under Biden, Teachers Unions Dictate to CDC

It’s about the science, our rulers bark. Except when it is about sucking up to unions. If schools still aren’t open, it isn’t because of science, even if the CDC is involved. It is about teachers unions:

The American Federation of Teachers lobbied the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on, and even suggested language for, the federal agency’s school-reopening guidance released in February.

The powerful teachers union’s full-court press preceded the federal agency putting the brakes on a full re-opening of in-person classrooms, emails between top CDC, AFT and White House officials show. …

The lobbying paid off. In at least two instances, language “suggestions” offered by the union were adopted nearly verbatim into the final text of the CDC document.

The CDC, like the rest of the federal government, has been dragging its feet on students returning to school, despite the insignificant Covid risk and the hardship caused to students and their parents, who unlike many teachers would like to get back to work.

Health experts are aghast at the politicization of even the CDC.

Dr. Monica Gandhi, a professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco who has written extensively on coronavirus, called the CDC-AFT emails “very, very troubling,”

“What seems strange to me here is there would be this very intimate back and forth including phone calls where this political group gets to help formulate scientific guidance for our major public health organization in the United State,” Gandhi told The Post.

As confirmed by his influence-peddling to our communist Chinese adversaries, Joe Biden is all about pay to play:

The AFT and its affiliates have long been one of the most reliable and deep pocketed donor constituencies of the Democratic party, dropping almost $20 million to elect party members during the 2020 election cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Even liberal shill Jake Tapper sounds fed up with the corruption.

In a widely viewed CNN interview on Feb 14, anchor Jake Tapper grilled [CDC director Rochelle] Walensky and demanded to know why the guidelines would allow schools in areas with high coronavirus community spread — know as “red zones” — to opt out of in-person reopening, noting that 99% of US kids fell within those areas, according to a CNN analysis.

“Can you point to any scientific reason for students in the United States not to return to in person classes tomorrow?” Tapper demanded several times.

There is only one reason, and it isn’t scientific: unions. They have bought and paid for the Democratic Party, as we see in the war on freelance work. To keep the money flowing, Biden openly panders to them.

On a tip from ABC of the ANC.
