GOP Rep. Introduces Bill to FIRE Fauci

'Dr. Fauci represents everything that President Eisenhower warned us about in his farewell address: the scientific-technical elite steering the country toward their own ends...'

An Ohio congressman used the ever-growing controversies surrounding coronavirus czar Anthony Fauci to propose 12-year ‘term’ limits for the unelected bureaucrats whose ability to flip on and off pandemic restrictions affords a dangerous degree of power without accountability.

Specifically, the bill targets the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, a position that Fauci has held since 1984.

“Despite successful treatment therapies, a historic vaccination development, and decreasing cases, Dr. Fauci has continued to advise healthy, low-risk Americans to continue to act as if the pandemic were out of control—after overseeing nearly a year of draconian public health policies that have decimated the U.S. economy,” said a press release from Rep. Warren Davidson, R-Ohio.

Further evidence that Davidson does not approve of the NIAID director’s inconsistent pandemic stewardship may be the bill’s name: the Fauci Incompetence Requires Early Dismissal (FIRED) Act

“Dr. Fauci represents everything that President Eisenhower warned us about in his farewell address: the scientific-technical elite steering the country toward their own ends,” Davidson said in a statement.

“Americans have had decades of Dr. Fauci’s leadership, and he publicly failed to respond appropriately to the COVID-19 pandemic,” he continued. “It is time for him to step aside so that new leadership can ‘follow the science’ and start reopening America.”

The bill, which had yet to make the official House docket, faces an uphill battle in the legislature, which Democrats control by a margin of five votes.

Although conservatives have long since turned on the partisan virologist, who publicly undermined former president Donald Trump’s pandemic policies but has repeatedly reversed his own guidelines, many on the Left continue to lionize him.

On Tuesday, during a Senate hearing, Fauci publicly clashed with his top congressional nemesis, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., over NIAID’s past funding of coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where the deadly disease is widely believed to have originated.

Paul forced an acknowledgement from Fauci that the official COVID-origin narrative—claiming it arose organically from a Chinese wet market—was not supported by the evidence.

“I do not have any accounting of what the Chinese may have done, and I’m fully in favor of any further investigation of what went on in China,” Fauci said.

However, some suspect that Fauci may have perjured himself before the committee by denying outright that the National Institutes of Health, which oversees NIAID, had financially supported the institute’s risky and controversial “gain of function” research to mutate bat coronaviruses into human strains.

Several reports in conservative media have furnished documented evidence linking Fauci to the institute, amid speculation that the research was intended to advance Chinese pursuits of biological weaponry.

In a tweet, Davidson noted that his bill was part of a broader effort to hold accountable public officials who had thrown American citizens under the bus while acting in the interest of their own special interests and political ambitions.
