Americans have had to deal with Dr. Anthony Fauci’s smug face on our television screens for years.
But now that towns, cities, states, and other countries are ending their COVID restrictions, Fauci’s days as a medical menace may, hopefully, be coming to an end.
Thankfully, Senator Rand Paul isn’t leaving things to chance and recently unveiled his plan to neuter Fauci’s powers for good.
If you may recall, Dr. Fauci and the good senator from Kentucky have had a series of well-publicized arguments during Senate hearings.
From the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic, Sen. Paul questioned Fauci’s actions every step of the way.
Senator Paul was one of the first Members of Congress to (rightly) question Dr. Fauci’s decision to fund controversial gain of function experiments at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which many believe sparked the Coronavirus pandemic.
Given the fact that Dr. Fauci has been wrong about the Coronavirus pandemic every step of the way and the devastating economic consequences of Fauci’s decisions, Senator recently introduced an amendment that would eliminate Fauci’s position as the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and replace it with three separate national research institutes.
In a press release announcing the amendment, Rand Paul said, “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.” No one person should have unilateral authority to make decisions for millions of Americans.”
But Senator Paul wasn’t finished knocking Dr. Fauci down a peg.
Rand continued by saying, “To ensure that ineffective, unscientific lockdowns and mandates are never foisted on the American people ever again, I’ve introduced this amendment to eliminate Dr. Anthony Fauci’s position as Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and divide his power into three separate new institutes. 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.”
And when Paul was asked about his motivations for introducing this amendment, he responded by saying, ”I’ve been a physician for over 33 years. 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.”
Usually, there would be enough reasons to doubt the viability of such an amendment, especially given the current composition of Congress.
However, Fauci’s popularity has waned in recent months and COVID is no longer dominating the headlines, as all eyes have become fixed on Ukraine.
And with Democrats’ poll numbers in the dumps, some vulnerable Democrats could end up supporting Paul’s plan to avoid being called Lockdown Leftists in future campaign ads.
