Dr. Anthony Fauci is coming under increasing fire as his strategy of endless lockdowns tanked the American economy.
On Tuesday, Dr. Fauci finally had to answer for his recommendations.
And all hell broke loose when one Senator called out Dr. Fauci for this terrible mistake.
Dr. Fauci testified before the Senate Help, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee on Tuesday.
In his testimony, Dr. Fauci bent over backwards to help Democrats bring down Donald Trump by predicting death and despair unless lockdowns continued indefinitely.
Dr. Fauci also warned that schools should consider closing until a vaccine is available late in 2021 or 2022.
When it came time for Senator Rand Paul to question Fauci, Paul tore into Fauci for his track record of horrendous predictions and pro-lockdown propaganda that would result in the collapse of society.
It was Fauci who helped persuade Donald Trump to adopt a national shut down using the faulty model from Imperial College in London whose prediction of 2 million dead in the United States missed the mark entirely.
“And I think that one-size-fits-all, that we’re gonna have a national strategy and nobody’s gonna go to school, is kind of ridiculous. We really ought to be doing it school district by school district, and the power needs to be dispersed, because, people make wrong predictions. And really, the history of this when we look back will be of wrong prediction after wrong prediction after wrong prediction, starting with Ferguson in England,” Paul began.
Paul also called out Dr. Fauci for his support for lockdowns that would result in economic ruin and harm to children by stunting their educational and social development by keeping them out of school for an entire year.
“So I think we ought to have a little bit of a humility in our belief that we know what’s best for the economy, and as much as I respect you, Dr. Fauci, I don’t think you’re the end-all. 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 and that we can safely open the economy and the facts will beat this out,” Paul concluded.
