Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul is set to propose a new Amendment, which is going to tackle what he calls “The Fauci Problem” this new amendment will completely get rid of the position that Dr. Fauci is currently holding for over a decade.
Dr. Anthony Fauci is the Director of The National Institute Of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984.
In this new amendment, Senator Paul suggests separating this position into three different positions so that “one person wouldn’t have a monopoly of so much power that they could use against their enemies.”
“We’ve learned a lot over the past two years, but one lesson, in particular, is that no one person should be deemed “dictator-in-chief.” No one person should have unilateral authority to make decisions for millions of Americans.” Senator Paul wrote in a statement.
“I will present an amendment that will get a vote on eliminating Anthony Fauci’s position. I think we should eliminate his position, divide it into three, and appoint three new directors that will be approvable by the Senate.” He said in his latest Fox News interview.
“The problem with having only one person and having everything go before him for like 40 years is that he’s monopolized power and he’s created a culture that’s not conducive to scientific inquiry,” he added.

The Senator also accused Fauci and Dr. Francis Collins of acting less as physicians and more like political puppets.
“Dr. Fauci and Dr. Collins, have both shown that they’ll get into the mud. If you don’t agree with their political opinions, they’ll go after you. That’s why, the last time I had an exchange with Dr. Fauci, we asked him about some emails between him and Dr. Collins. And in the emails, he says let’s do a dramatic takedown of three scientists who they disagreed with politically.” He told host Jesse Watters.
