Congressman Rand Paul and Andy Biggs published an op-ed in which they call out Dr. Anthony Fauci, warning that if the White House coronavirus task force member has his way, there won’t be an America to reopen.

The column, appearing in USA Today, slams Fauci as out of touch, unaware or unwilling to see how Americans are suffering due to the economic shutdown.

“Fauci persists in advocating policies that have emasculated the medical care system and ruined the economy,” they said, citing models that have proven wrong time and again.

“Anthony Fauci wants America closed until there’s nothing to reopen,” they write.

Paul V. Fauci

Paul has been absolutely eviscerating Fauci at every turn. Though, as he and Biggs note, they respect his “service to our country and medical opinion.”

Earlier this week, the Kentucky Republican shared a link to a chart showing the coronavirus death rate is similar to the seasonal flu for people under 60.

He added the caption, “Paging Dr. Fauci.”

During questioning and testimony before the Senate last week, Paul referred to blanket lockdowns implemented by many states through advice doled out by Fauci as “kind of ridiculous.”

“I don’t think you’re the end-all,” said Paul. “I don’t think you’re the one person that gets to make the decision. We can listen to your advice, but there are people on the other side saying there’s not going to be a surge.”

What About Those Suffering Financially?

The USA Today op-ed goes on to address comments made by Fauci before Congress that serve little more than to scare the American people and their local leaders into overreacting.

“There is a real risk that you will trigger an outbreak that you might not be able to control … not only leading to some suffering and death that could be avoided, but could even set you back on the road to trying to get economic recovery,” Fauci claimed.

States such as Georgia and Florida have proven him wrong thus far.

“What about the countless stories of needless suffering and death produced by Fauci’s one-size-fits-all approach to public health?” Biggs and Paul ask.

The congressmen concluded, “We must forge ahead even as Fauci tries to brush away the optimism of the president and the American people.”

It’s time this charade ends – with or without the blessing of Dr. Fauci.
