Paul Moves To End Fauci's Crooked Career, For GOOD
We may be rid of Fauci sooner than you think. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul just introduced an amendment that would eliminate Dr. Anthany Fauci's position as he Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID).
Paul explained more in an article that he's written for Fox News:
Paul's amendment would reorganize NIAID by breaking it down into three separate national research institutes, all with their own director, including the National Institute of Allergic Diseases, the National Institute of Infectious Diseases, and the National Institute of Immunologic Diseases.
"We’ve learned a lot over the past two years, but one lesson in particular is that no one person should be deemed ‘dictator-in-chief,’" Paul said in a statement announcing the amendment. "No one person should have unilateral authority to make decisions for millions of Americans."
"This will create accountability and oversight into a taxpayer funded position that has largely abused its power, and has been responsible for many failures and misinformation during the COVID-19 pandemic," he said.
Each of the three institutes proposed by Paul would be led by a director who is appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate for a 5-year term.
"I’ve been a physician for over 33 years," Paul wrote in a piece Monday for Fox News Digital. "In all my years studying and practicing medicine, I had never encountered someone with the gall to proclaim himself ‘the science’ and portray anyone opposing him as ‘attacking science.’ That is, until Dr. Fauci became the COVID dictator-in-chief."
"The biggest lesson we have learned over the last two years is that no one person should have this much-unchecked power," he wrote. "And my amendment, which will get a vote this week, will finally force accountability and fire Dr. Fauci."
Just under a year ago in April 2021, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene introduced House Bill H. R. 2316, also known as the Fire Fauci Act, to reduce the NIAID’s director’s salary currently at $434,312, which is the highest paid of any of the 4,000,000 Federal employees, including the president.
