(ConservativeInsider.org) – The mission of the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is to “enhance the health and well-being of all Americans.” With this, many Americans would assume the leader of such an agency would have a scientific or medical degree to help them make informed decisions when writing policies for the United States. However, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) recently highlighted that Joe Biden’s HHS secretary Xavier Becerra is simply a “lawyer with no scientific background.”
During a Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee hearing on Thursday, September 30, Paul asked Becerra his opinion about an Israeli study. It involved 2.5 million people and found that individuals with natural immunity to COVID-19 were “seven times” less likely to contract the virus than those who got a coronavirus vaccine. Becerra said he was “not familiar” with the study, which led Paul to confront him on his ignorance.
One American shared the exchange on Twitter:

Secretary Becerra received an Economics degree from Stanford University and his Juris Doctorate from Stanford Law School. He then went into politics, serving both in the US House of Representatives and as the Attorney General for California. It’s clear he has no legitimate medical training, as Paul pointed out. Perhaps before Becerra continues making decisions affecting the health of all Americans, he should get a bit more education on such matters.
