Ruby-Red Indiana Seeks Public Health Power Grab Despite Massive Covid Failures

Amy Drake • March 30, 2023 • The Federalist

The gargantuan post-Covid plan seems like something that might come out of California or Illinois, not a solid red state such as Indiana.

At a time when red states should be unified in making sure the travesty of lockdowns never happens again, Indiana Republicans are entertaining an overfunded public health bill that would fortify the power structure that allowed state bureaucrats to control citizens with error-ridden “science.”

The gargantuan post-Covid plan, which would increase annual public health spending by a whopping $150 million per year for local health departments, seems like something that might come out of California or Illinois, not a solid Republican state such as Indiana.

More money means more influence, and that’s why the public health bill, which centralizes more power at the state level, is so threatening. The pandemic transformed the power structure around public health, giving the stage to self-proclaimed expert bureaucrats who considered their authority more significant than the U.S. Constitution and shut down dissenting voices in the name of “safety.” It would be naive to expect that such new-found power would not seek a foothold with which to expand.
