Where is Dr. Fauci?
Dr. Fauci, the guy who couldn’t get enough time in front of a television camera, has conspicuously gone missing from the public eye. Fauci appears to have disappeared after he was rightfully bombarded with criticism from lawmakers, members of the media, and American Citizens for his role in the horrible mishandling of the COVID pandemic.
Many believe Fauci, who behaved as though he were the ultimate authority on COVID throughout the pandemic, is actually responsible for the bat virus turned global pandemic after it was discovered US tax dollars were allegedly used to fund the controversial “gain of function” research at the Wuhan lab in China.
Thanks to Dr. Fauci, trust in government health organizations like the CDC and NIAID has never been lower.
This afternoon, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced an amendment that would eliminate Dr.Fauci’s position as the Director of the NIAID (National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases).
The goal is to “decentralize” Dr. Fauci’s current position, eliminating the ability for a “Dr.Fauci” to act as a “dictator-in-chief” in the name of public health, Senator Paul said.
Fox News reports – 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.
