'WHO' DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? Rick Scott Introduces Bill to Limit Power of World Health Organization

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.26.22

Florida Senator Rick Scott has introduced a bill that would limit the power of the World Health Organization; the WHO is currently considering a radical global pandemic treaty that Scott calls a “dangerous global overreach.”

“The bill, introduced Thursday, would prevent U.S. officials from being bound to orders or directives given by the WHO or its branches,” Fox News reports. “In addition, it would require U.S. officials to oppose changes to the WHO charter until the House and the Senate agree to adopt the change in a joint resolution of Congress.”

“The WHO’s radical ‘pandemic treaty’ is a dangerous globalist overreach. The United States of America must never give more power to the WHO. The WHO is a puppet for Xi Jinping, controlled by the Chinese Communist Party, and helped Beijing cover up the origins of COVID-19,” Scott told Fox News Digital.

“We must quickly pass this bill to ensure that public health matters in the country remain in the hands of Americans, not globalist puppets working for Communist China.”

Scott has been blasting the WHO on Twitter.

“I’ve been saying this for years: the @WHO has turned into a puppet for Communist China and cannot be trusted. I’ll be introducing a bill this week to protect American families and taxpayers from the gross overreach of corrupt organizations like the WHO.”

“[Scott’s] legislation comes as the Biden administration is set to propose amendments to the International Health Regulations (IHRs) during the 75th World Health Assembly in Geneva this week, which Republicans have argued would surrender the U.S. government’s control during a public health emergency to a foreign body,” Fox reports.

Last week, Senators Steve Daines (R-MT) and Tom Cotton (R-AR) implored the Biden Administration to remove the U.S. from the WHO over the agency’s “abysmal lack of competence” throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
