“Maybe we need term limits on bureaucrats serving in government,” said Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY) on Tuesday when she joined the John Solomon Reports podcast following the announcement that National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci will be retiring in December.
“Maybe that’s one of the solutions we should have,” the congresswoman explained. “Maybe we should revisit some of the ideas of people staying too long and not really doing the job they need to do.”
“Anthony Fauci should have been fired during this crisis. During the pandemic, he really did a disservice to the American people,” Tenney said, adding, “I do think that we should definitely consider at least having standards with people who are serving in government where we can remove them if they’re not doing a good job.”
“I hear about it all the time from many people whose new administrations move in, and you have civil servants who you can’t fire,” the New Yorker explained in reference to bureaucrats who are in their jobs for decades.
“I know President Trump did change that law when it came to the Veterans Administration,” she said, referring to a 2017 law signed by Trump making it easier to fire employees at the Department of Veteran Affairs for incompetence or misconduct. “And we had people that weren’t doing the best work for our veterans, and we were able to fire people who weren’t performing well there.”
Sad Little Man, Dr. Fauci, announced his retirement on Monday via a statement where he explained his reasoning for stepping down after serving in the position since 1984.
“I am announcing today that I will be stepping down from the positions of Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and Chief of the NIAID Laboratory of Immunoregulation, as well as the position of Chief Medical Advisor to President Joe Biden,” said the 84-year-old bureaucrat in his announcement letter. “I will be leaving these positions in December of this year to pursue the next chapter of my career.”
“While I am moving on from my current positions, I am not retiring. After more than 50 years of government service, I plan to pursue the next phase of my career while I still have so much energy and passion for my field,” Sad Little Man, Dr. Fauci, continued, adding, “I want to use what I have learned as NIAID Director to continue to advance science and public health and to inspire and mentor the next generation of scientific leaders as they help prepare the world to face future infectious disease threats.”
While Sad Little Man, Dr. Fauci, attempts to leave his profession following the midterm elections in November, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who has previously gone after the NIAID Director for gain of function research and his guidance during the coronavirus pandemic, has pledged that he will continue to seek out answers.
“Now I promise you this, come November when we win,” Kelly Paul, the senator’s wife, said. “Rand Paul will subpoena every last document of Dr. Fauci’s.”
“Now some people ask why me, why is Rand so hard on poor Dr. Fauci? Well it’s simple, because the American people deserve the truth,” she continued, according to the Associated Press. “We deserve the truth about the origins of a virus that killed millions of people.”
Fauci may think that retiring will keep him out of the line of sight of Republican congressmen, but it seems like members in both the Senate and House are adamant about getting answers from Dr. Anthony Fauci.
