Rick Scott introduces bill to limit powers of the World Health Organization, Warns of “Dangerous globalist overreach”

According to a new report from Fox News “Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., is introducing legislation aimed at curtailing the power of the World Health Organization (WHO) to ensure that the public health matters are handled by the U.S., not “puppets” for Communist China.”

Scott told Fox News Digital “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.”

“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,” he added.

Per Fox:

The 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.

A source within the White House told Fox News Digital this week that the administration “believes in science.”

“The WHO is an important body to coordinate global health activities and provide evidence-based guidance on the world’s health crisis. Would also note that the United States is in a stronger, more effective position to advance WHO reforms that would create global health equity while also protecting the homeland if we have a seat at the table,” the Biden administration source said.
