Biden Doubles Down On DEI Bureaucracy
The Biden administration is already the most woke in history. Now it’s embedding this divisive ideology even deeper in federal agencies.
That’s the reality of the President’s Feb. 23 Executive Order, “Further Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through The Federal Government.” It directs the federal bureaucracy to reach new levels of wokeness, including those that oversee and influence health care.
The President’s order compels all federal department and agency heads to establish “Agency Equity Teams” within 30 days. What’s more, they must submit an annual “Equity Action Plan” on diversity, equity, and inclusion to a new White House “Steering Committee on Equity.”
What does this mean in practice? Everything from the Department of Health and Human Services to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will be forced to create these teams and draft these plans. That surely means more staff focused on DEI and more policies that force woke ideology on physicians, patients, medical schools, and health care as a whole. The executive order also includes a command that agencies spend additional taxpayer money on woke constituencies.
This de facto DEI mandate for the federal government is bad enough. What makes it worse is the lack of transparency. The White House doesn’t have to disclose these new equity plans, meaning the public could be kept in the dark.
Americans deserve to know how the federal government is forcing divisive and discriminatory ideology on society. For that matter, we deserve better than a woke federal bureaucracy at all.
