Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Democrat party’s corrupt authority on all things COVID, is set to earn upwards of $350,000 per year in retirement — the largest retirement package in federal history.
According to Forbes, 81-year-old Fauci has been the most highly compensated federal employee for two years in a row. Not only does he earn more than four-star generals and about 4.3 million of his colleagues, but he also out-earns the President, who earns $400,000 annually. In 2019, Fauci’s salary was $417,608.
In 2004, Fauci received a salary increase for his biodefense work. However, at this time, his work to test vaccines and medical treatments reportedly included harmful – sometimes deadly – experiments on monkeys, dogs, and, most disgustingly, orphans.
From 2018-2020, Fauci earned $1.252 million. However, Forbes was unable to gain access to Fauci’s payment records, the majority of which the NIH was unable to turn over. A Freedom of Information Act lawsuit has been filed and thus complete documentation of Fauci’s earnings remains to be included in these calculations.
Fauci does not plan to retire any time in the immediate future, as he told ABC in an interview. “There’s no way I’m going to walk away from this until we get this under control,” Fauci said. “I’m in the middle of it, I’m not going to walk away.” Fauci’s plans to continue working are unsurprising since his annuity payments continue to increase. He also obviously enjoys being in the spotlight amidst this pandemic.
“I’m the head of an institute that actually played the major role in the development of the vaccines that have saved now millions of lives from COVID-19,” Fauci said in an interview with CBS. “I’m the director of the institute that has now been very important in the basic research in leading to the drugs that will now have an important impact in the treatment of COVID-19. That’s what I do.”
Correction: Drugs to help treat COVID-19 already exist (i.e., Ivermectin). Fauci and his colleagues, however, want to profit solely off the drugs that they create, and eliminate any competition.
Fauci needs to hang on to his position of power so can claim all the glory and recognition from the Left, despite denying the American population life-saving treatment in the meantime.
