If we learned anything from the last two years, it’s that we can’t trust the government with our health. At the start of 2020, the federal government placed the fate of the country into the hands of one group, led by one man: Anthony Fauci.
Fauci’s wildest claims and theories practically become law. He pushed for lockdowns that crippled our country and ruined lives, calling it all “inconvenient.” And he continued to push hysteria and fear, even as his own credibility was called into question.
He’s made a few enemies in D.C., including senator (and physician) Rand Paul. Paul has been one of a few lawmakers willing to challenge Fauci when the “expert” was proven wrong or caught in a lie. And even as things are calming down (after two terrible years), Paul wants to ensure Fauci (or anyone else) doesn’t wield that kind of power again.
From Fox News:
This week marks the two-year anniversary of the COVID lockdowns. I join the American people in mourning the lives lost to this virus. I also mourn those we lost to the crushing and overbearing lockdowns and mandates that were based on junk science…
To ensure that ineffective, unscientific lockdowns and mandates are never foisted on the American people ever again, I will introduce an 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.
Sen. Rand Paul is introducing an amendment that will break up Fauci’s position and divide it into three new institutes. These institutes will replace the NIAID, a group that was controlled by, as Paul says, a “dictator in chief.” The senator believes this will prevent one man from making decisions that ruin the lives of 300 million Americans.
He wants these institutes to be led by a director who is appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate. He or she will have a five-year term. This will not only “create accountability” as Paul says, but ensure nobody else will end up like Fauci, who has served for decades (and earns more money than any other government flunky).
Paul blasted Fauci’s decisions which wrecked America. He claims “We lost our freedoms. Our liberties. Our vibrant small town Main Streets. Our children’s growth and learning. For two years our lives were held captive by petty tyrants and power-hungry bureaucrats.”
It’s hard to find anyone in America that won’t agree with at least a portion of what Paul stated. Even the most die-hard Democrat voter at this point will agree that the mandates and rule went too far. The only person that perhaps won’t agree, is Fauci himself.
But will this amendment see the light of day? Only if many lawmakers get behind it.
- Paul wants an amendment that will eliminate Fauci’s position.
- He wants to break up the NIAID into three institutes, with term-limited directors.
- Paul blames “dictator in chief” Fauci for costly lockdowns and other abusive measures.
