Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) Used Twitter to draw attention to the Fire Fauci Act that she had introduced to reduce Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's leading infectious disease expert, is set to be cut to $ 0.
"Nobody chose Dr. Fauci. He's the highest paid federal employee, "said Greene, who has continued to downplay the severity of the Covid-19 pandemic and has not worn a mask to fend off the viral portion of her political brand.
"On his orders, shutdowns and masks are ruining our country because it appears to be a man-made virus that Fauci paid for with our money, ”she added.

Greene is mistaken about the extent of Fauci's authority: he can only recommend public health measures and has no power to force states to comply with mask mandates. Covid-19 was also not made in a laboratory, despite their claims.
"A draft study, working with a group formed by former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, revives claims on social media that the coronavirus was deliberately made in a Chinese laboratory, ”Associated Press reported last year after fact-checking.
"The four authors list their affiliations with the Rule of Law Society, a group founded by Bannon whose aim is to expose corruption, disability, illegality, brutality, wrongful imprisonment, excessive condemnation, harassment and inhumanity that are common in politics and law ubiquitous are China's business and financial systems. "It's not a scientific organization," added the outlet, noting that the conspiracy theory continues to thrive.
