President Obama says parents should vaccinate their children so, of course, some Republicans and conservative pundits are against it.
Fox News host Sean Hannity was accompanied on his show last night by the "Fox News Medical A-Team" who indicated that we should been vaccinating our children (but it shouldn't be mandatory), while Hannity insisted that he is "not trusting President Obama" to tell him "whether to vaccinate" his kids.
If President Obama is for it, we have to be against it.
Meanwhile, Representative Sean Duffy (R-WI) told MSNBC that the last thing we need is the oppressive big government telling us what to do.
"I want that to be my choice as a parent," Duffy, a father of seven, said said during an appearance on MSNBC's "The Rundown With José Díaz-Balart." "I know my kids best. I know what morals and values are right for my children. I think we should not have an oppressive state telling us what to do."
It wouldn't be a stretch to say that the GOP's vaccine contrarianism and trutherism will endanger the lives of children. That's exactly what it has done and will do.
I'm not necessarily looking forward to that moment when the presidential hopefuls are asked to raise their hands if they believe vaccination should be a choice.
