President Joe Biden is so out of touch with average Americans that he doesn’t seem to realize the irony of his two latest initiatives — or he just doesn’t care.

Just weeks after Democrats in the House passed what some are calling the “Death of Democracy Act” to mandate ID-less voting across the country, the Biden administration has announced plans to develop a federalized vaccine passport program to speed the “return to normalcy.”

In other words, President Biden wants Americans to show a vaccine ID to go to a movie or travel, but not to vote in an election.

Bureaucrats in the Department of Health and Human Services are working with private companies to develop a standardized system by which Americans can prove they have taken a COVID-19 vaccine, according to The Washington Post.

Rather than allow the states to develop their own vaccine passport systems, Biden wants one nationwide system that can be used to prohibit the non-vaccinated from work, sporting events, entertainment venues and international travel.

Administration officials insist that this system won’t be used to crack down on Americans who refuse to comply. White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Monday that there will be “no centralized, universal federal vaccinations database” and “no federal mandate requiring everyone to obtain a single vaccination credential.”

We’ve heard this song and dance before. The left also insists that they don’t want a nationwide gun registry, but they passed a universal background check mandate that will require a registry for enforcement. They claim they don’t want nationalized health care, but Biden’s “public option” would effectively destroy private insurance companies.

Clearly, the passport system is just the first step. The enforcement of the vaccine mandate will come later.

Does anyone think for a moment that Washington will exercise restraint when not enough Americans agree to take the vaccine?
