A group of top GOP lawmakers introduced a bill to have Dr. Anthony Fauci fired for his poor response to the coronavirus pandemic and excessive control over the lives of the American people. The bill led by Congresswoman Majorie Taylor Greene was announced which would lead to drastic reduction of his salary and might also require the Senate to fire him.

Dr. Anthony Fauci who was a trusted figure and an adviser to seven U.S. presidents failed in his performance during the outbreak of Covid-19 by misleading the American people and providing contradictory advise on masks and social distancing.

“Dr Fauci was not elected by the American people. He was not chosen to guide our economy. He was not chosen to rule over parents and their children’s education, yet Dr Fauci very much controlled our lives for the past year. It’s time to fire Dr. Anthony Fauci and give answers to the American people,” Taylor Greene told reporters.

The bill introduced by lawmakers reads:

    • The Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Dr. Anthony Fauci, M.D., earned $434,312 in 2020.

    • Dr. Fauci is not only the highest paid doctor in the Federal Government, but the highest paid of any of the 4,000,000 Federal employees, including the President.

    • Part IV of the Executive Schedule generally caps government salaries at $172,500, but Dr. Fauci’s salary is much higher due to an exception put in place to make Federal salaries for doctorsand scientists more competitive with the private sector.

    • The role of the Director of the NIAID is to ‘provide scientific leadership, policy guidance, and overall operational and administrative coordination for the Institute. NIAID is funded by American taxpayer dollars and, as part of the National Institutes of Health, seeks to apply scientific knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce illness and disability.

    • Dr. Anthony Fauci has continually failed to provide Americans with accurate information about the COVID–19 pandemic and has shown distrust in the American private sector and American ingenuity.

    • In March 2020, Dr. Fauci told Americans not to wear masks, noting: ‘‘There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask. When you are in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better and it might even block a droplet, but it is not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is. And, often, there are unintended consequences, people keep fiddling with the mask and they keep touching their face.’’ Now, more than a year later, he is telling Americans to continue quarantining as much as possible and to wear a mask, maybe even into the year 2022.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the vaccines have been ‘‘highly effective’’ at preventing infection. Research from Johns Hopkins Medicine has shown that the vaccine is 95 percent effective, and also works to prevent serious illness in the 1 in 20 people who may contract COVID–19 after being vaccinated.

None the less, there is continuous surge in protests all across the country against the Joe Biden administration’s vaccine mandates. Protesters took their fight against New York City vaccine mandates to the mayor’s front door, protesting outside Gracie Mansion a day ahead of a deadline for municipal workers to get a shot or be suspended without pay.
