GOP lawmakers introduce legislation that would terminate Dr. Anthony Fauci

Dr. Anthony Fauci serves as the director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and the COVID-19 pandemic has made him a polarizing figure — especially as President Joe Biden appointed him as a chief medical adviser on the pandemic upon taking office.

Although he has been hailed as a heroic figure by many on the left, many Republicans have grown increasingly critical of Fauci’s performance, especially due to his incessant flip-flopping on COVID-19-related guidance. Because of that, a number of Republicans are currently working on legislation that would effectively fire the epidemiologist, according to Fox News.

Fired by way of legislation?

As Fox reported Friday, Rep. Warren Davidson (R-OH) has authored a bill called the “Fauci’s Incompetence Requires Early Dismissal (FIRED) Act.”

Supported by fellow Republican Reps. Chip Roy (R-TX), Andy Biggs (R-AZ), and Ralph Norman (R-SC), the legislation would impose a retroactive 12-year time limit on Fauci’s lucrative government position — a role that he’s held since 1984. The doctor is also the highest-paid government official on the United State’s payroll, as Forbes notes.

“Few people have earned their termination more visibly,” Davidson, a public critic of Fauci, said after announcing the legislation, according to Fox.

“His excessively long tenure is emblematic of Eisenhower’s farewell address caution against scientific-technical elite steering the country for their own ends — at odds with truth and the national interest,” he added.

Fox noted that although Davidson’s bill has little chance of being signed into law, it nevertheless reflects a growing sense of frustration that Republicans have with the Fauci and the way government health institutions handled the COVID-19 pandemic overall.

Trusting the CDC?

What’s more, that frustration over the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) handling of pandemic-related guidance isn’t simply limited to the Trump-centric faction of the Republican Party, as even moderate, establishment GOP members like Sen. Susan Collins (ME) have recently voiced concerns.

“I used to have the utmost respect for the guidance from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention),” Collins told CDC Director Rochelle Walensky during a contentious hearing last Tuesday.

“I always considered the CDC to be the gold standard,” Collins continued before adding that she no longer has the same level of confidence. “The conflicting, confusing guidance from your agency has undermined public confidence and contradicts the scientific guidance of many experts.”

During his Friday podcast, conservative commentator and Daily Wire founder Ben Shapiro accused the CDC of updating its recommendations regarding mask usage simply to distract the public from President Joe Biden’s poor performance, saying it “has nothing to do with science and everything to do with politics.”

“Have there been any new studies?” Shapiro asked with regard to face coverings. “No, not a one. We knew this months ago — months ago.”

    1. No one cares miss Rose. The conversation relates to firing of Dr. Fauci. Yes he needs to go. He can’t make up his mind. To much flip flopping.

  5. Facuci needs to GO. Hooray for some people in Government who really care about Our Country. Facuci only cares about Facuci .

  6. Word is that he promoted all this COVID stuff and vaccinations because he is making money off of them with Bill Gates and others. He does not care about us AT ALL!!

    Doctors are now coming forward saying that his making them delay treatments for two weeks instead of using the stuff Trump recommended (hydroquinine?) resulted in many unnecessary deaths and allowed COVID to morph into stronger versions. He has consistently done harm to this country and our people!

  7. If the clownlike elected congressman did their jobs, as well as he does , maybe we would not have the problems that their inaction creates.
