On Monday, The Conservative Review posted an article about a suggestion made by Senator Rand Paul. Senator Paul has a medical background and has not always been happy with the edicts of Dr. Fauci during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The article reports:
Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky has proposed an amendment that would nix the position of director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, a role Dr. Anthony Fauci has occupied for more than three decades.
Under Paul’s proposal, Fauci’s role would be eliminated and replaced with three directors tasked with leading three new institutes: A National Institute of Allergic Diseases, a National Institute of Infectious Diseases, and a National Institute of Immunologic Diseases.
“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,” Paul said, according to a press release. “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.”
The article concludes:
Paul noted that the amendment will receive a vote this week.
Fauci, who has been a prominent and controversial public health figure throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, began serving as the NIAID director in 1984. He is also currently serving as the chief medical advisor to President Joe Biden.
During the past two years we have seen an unelected bureaucrat tell business owners to shut down their businesses, tell Americans they did not have the right to go to church, put treatment of Covid on the back burner while searching for a (relatively ineffective and expensive) vaccine that generated millions for those invested in certain pharmaceutical companies, and generally disrupt the freedoms Americans fought for generations ago. It is time to divest Dr. Fauci of that non-existent power and get on with our lives.
