Rand Paul Unveils Brilliant Plan to Deal with Fauci for Good

Since the early days of the pandemic, Senator Rand Paul and career bureaucrat Anthony Fauci have sparred over the government’s role in dealing with the pandemic.

On one side is Fauci, who almost always pushes the line that will expand the government’s power to the degree that is most acceptable to America at the time. He rarely goes all in and jumps seven steps ahead, as many Democrats do, but he is almost always pushing to move the marker one step farther, to push the policy up by just one or two notches.

Hence how no masks became one mask then two masks, how one shot became two then three then four, how two weeks to slow the spread became two months and then two years, and so on. Fauci is always pushing to expand the government’s power and add something new that you must do.

On the other side is Senator Rand Paul. He, ever the somewhat libertarian conservative, is constantly defending the right of Americans to live free. He’s been against mandates, against government shutdowns, and against all the other usurpations of power that the government has engaged in or Fauci has pushed.

As you might expect, the two have sparred, frequently fighting in Senate hearings over what Fauci has said, the measures he is pushing, and the concept of individual liberty.

Well, to fight Fauci, Paul has now released an amendment that would eliminate his position.

Describing that amendment in a statement, Senator Paul said:

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.

To ensure that ineffective, unscientific lockdowns and mandates are never foisted on the American people ever again, I’ve introduced this amendment to eliminate Dr. Anthony Fauci’s position as Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and divide his power into three separate new institutes.

This will create accountability and oversight into a taxpayer funded position that has largely abused its power, and has been responsible for many failures and misinformation during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The amendment is genius because it preserves the ability of the NIAD to act for good and help keep Americans safe from dangerous, infectious diseases, but also limits the ability of any one man to warp that power, a supreme responsibility, for personal gain.

Rather, by splitting up Fauci’s position into three and creating five-year terms for the positions that require, Paul hit at the staying power of the officials in a major way while also maintaining the agency’s ability to act in a way that is beneficial for Americans. It’s brilliant and just what is needed to keep Fauci and those like him from taking the US again down the dark route of the Covid days.

Now we have to see if he can get it passed and, if so, if Biden will sign it. Both are doubtful, but the first is at least possible. The second, getting Biden to sign it, is decidedly less so.

Still, if enough Democrats determine that Fauci is a political albatross that needs to go, then perhaps Paul can get his bill passed and limit Fauci’s power for good.
