From Pandemic to Endemic
Normally, we’d applaud someone for displaying candor during a Congressional hearing. In their infinite narcissism, politicians have given up any pretense that these meetings are trying to uncover truth or guide wise governance. Today they’re just chances for grandstanding blowhards to spout whatever nonsense will earn them more cash from donors. Since they’re getting paid while talking, they’re essentially fundraising at taxpayers’ expense. At the same time, our tax dollars pay for Dr. Fauci, too. According to Forbes, his salary in 2020 was $434,312 — making him one of the highest paid government employees. Even the president only makes $400,000. And that’s just Fauci’s take-home pay. We don’t know if he’s earning any royalties from drugs he helped develop while working in the private sector… or if he owns stock in any companies that have benefited from the pandemic. It’s a pretty sweet gig… and not one he’s eager to give up.
