The ‘Fire Fauci Act’ Has Officially Been Introduced in the House


Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene introduced the “Fire Fauci Act” on Thursday to cut the government’s leading infectious diseases expert’s salary. The Georgia Republican introduced the bill to reduce Dr. Anthony Fauci’s salary to $0 “until a new [National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases] Administrator is confirmed by the Senate,” according to a news release on Twitter. The director of NIAID’s position is not subject to confirmation by the Senate, The Hill reported. Greene’s bill points out that Fauci is the highest paid of all 4 million federal employees, including President Joe Biden, with a salary of $434,312. It is not known at this time if cutting Fauci’s salary could be authorized even if the bill is passed. The bill also directs the Government Accountability Office “to conduct a study about the correspondence, financials, and policy memos inside the NIAID before COVID through the end of this year.” “This will allow us to see what Fauci and the NIAID knew, when they knew it, what they spent money on, and how the agency responded to the virus,” according to the news release.
