After many failures and misinformation during the COVID-19 pandemic Rand Paul has decided to introduce the ‘Fauci Amendment’ to prevent ‘Health Dictatorship’ from taking place again.
Senator Rand Paul has stated that he intends to introduce legislation in the Senate to prevent anyone from ever again becoming the “dictator in chief” of health care.
Paul wrote in a Fox News op-ed that the move “would eliminate Dr. Fauci’s position as NIAID director” and “divide his power into 3 separate institutes.”
According to Paul, “Each of these three institutes will be led by a director who is appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate for a five-year term.”
The Senator added that “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.”

“No one person should have unilateral authority to make decisions for millions of Americans,” Paul said, adding that his amendment will “ensure that ineffective, unscientific lockdowns and mandates are never foisted on the American people ever again.”
“No one person should have the sole authority to dictate science, especially when that one person wasn’t ever following the science,” Paul said, adding, “For two years our lives were held captive by petty tyrants and power-hungry bureaucrats.”
Paul cited a recent Johns Hopkins study that concluded that worldwide lockdowns have harmed society far more than they have benefited it, with academics advising that they “are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument.”
“A rational person might ask, how in the world did it take us so long to get to the truth?””Why did we spend two years not following the science?” Paul wondered.
“Well again, that’s what happens when “the science” is dictated by one man, an unelected bureaucrat with far too much power,” he said, referring to Fauci.
“Dr. Fauci caused people to engage in activities they wouldn’t have normally by telling them it was safe when masked when it wasn’t. I tried to sound the alarm, but I was censored by YouTube and my videos were taken down,” Paul noted.
“Dr. Fauci and his friends worked diligently to silence opposing views” he continued. “The media amplified his efforts. We were branded conspiracy theorists and anti-science for simply asking questions and presenting alternatives to what had been delivered to the American people as ‘fact.'”
YouTube suspended Paul for questioning the efficiency of face masks, despite the fact that the Senator’s remarks were nearly identical to those made by Joe Biden’s former COVID adviser Dr. Michael Osterholm only one week previously.
“Does this mean snot-nosed censors at YouTube will come to my office and kiss my… and admit I was right?” Paul questioned months later, when the CDC updated its mask guidelines, conceding that cotton masks do essentially little to curb the spread of COVID.
“The biggest lesson we have learned over the last two years is that no one person should have this much unchecked power. And my amendment, which will get a vote this week, will finally force accountability and fire Dr. Fauci,” Paul declared on Sunday.
