Rep. MTG's Fire Fauci Act Press Conference
Yesterday, I held a press conference with my Republicans colleagues at the Capitol in Washington, DC, to discuss my legislation, the “Fire Fauci Act” (H.R. 2316).
The Fire Fauci Act:
- Reminds the American public that Dr. Fauci is the highest paid ($434,312) of all 4 million federal employees, including the President.
- Cites numerous findings about Dr. Fauci’s evolving and contradictory advice on COVID-19.
- Reduces Dr. Fauci’s salary to $0 until a new NIAID Administrator is confirmed by the Senate.
- Directs GAO 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.
