Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (R-GA) introduced a pair of bills on Thursday that would end Dr. Anthony Fauci’s salary — the “Fire Fauci Act” — and ban proposed vaccine passports — the “We Will Not Comply Act.”
The Congresswoman’s Fire Fauci Act would eliminate the salary of the nation’s COVID-19 spokesperson. The move would remain in place until a new director could be confirmed by the Senate.
Greene’s We Will Not Comply Act champions a ban against vaccine passports. The proposed document or digital tool would be used to prove a person has taken the coronavirus vaccine for certain business actions, travel or attendance at events such as concerts or professional sports.

The bills do not hold wide support and are not expected to pass the Democrat-controlled House. The efforts highlights the Congresswoman’s attacks against government overreach against Americans.
Fire Fauci Act will:
Remind the American public that Dr. Fauci is the highest paid ($434,312) of all 4 million federal employees, including the President.
Cite numerous findings about Dr. Fauci’s evolving and contradictory advice on COVID-19.
Reduce Dr. Fauci’s salary to $0 until a new NIAID Administrator is confirmed by the Senate.
Direct GAO to conduct a study about the correspondence, financials, and policy memos inside the NIAID before COVID through the end of this year. This will allow us to see what Fauci and the NIAID knew, when they knew it, what they spent money on, and how the agency responded to the virus.
Greene’s fight against vaccine passports adds to others opposing the growing effort. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) announced this week his plan to ban the use of vaccine passports in his state.
Democrats continue to mock the Congresswoman’s efforts. Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) said the legislation reveals “why Members of Congress need good staff.”
“Helps prevent us from introducing stupid, nonsensical bills,” he tweeted.

Greene’s bills may not pass, but they certainly highlight the concerns of many Americans who are fed up with COVID-19 restrictions and government overreach.
