Reps. Jason Smith (R-MO) and Gary Palmer (R-AL) are leading a charge against Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra after he “spread misinformation to the American people” about the government incentivizing doctors to provide race-based medical care.
The letter comes after Becerra repeatedly testified before Congress that the federal government does not doctors to implement “anti-racism” policies in exchange for more government funding.
“At the very least, Secretary Becerra was spinning in response to questions about the existence of this program,” Protect the Public’s Trust Director Michael Chamberlain told Breitbart News. “If the facts emerge to indicate he was aware of it before his testimony, which is not out of the realm of possibility since it was created in response to an Executive Order, that spinning could have crossed the line into something much more serious, including a potential violation of the False Statements Act.”
