According to Forbes, Dr. Anthony Fauci is the “most highly compensated federal employee,” earning more than the president, four-star generals, and 4.3 million of his colleagues.
Forbes reports that “[a]s director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Fauci earned $434,312 in 2020, the latest year available, up from $417,608 in 2019.” The president of the United States of America earns $400,000 per year.
We won’t be done paying Fauci’s exorbitant fees anytime soon, though. After 55 years of “service” as a federal employee, Fauci’s retirement pension would reportedly exceed $350,000 per year if he were to throw in the towel anytime soon. According to Forbes:
[D]ocuments released to our non-profit organization OpenTheBooks.com reveal that Dr. Fauci was approved for a “permanent pay adjustment” in excess of his regular salary in December 2004, during the George W. Bush Administration.
From 2004 through 2007, Fauci received a 68-percent pay increase from $200,000- to $335,000-a year. This award was permanent and carried forward through 2020. Fauci’s permanent pay raise was to “appropriately compensate him for the level of responsibility…especially as it relates to his work on biodefense research activities.”
Unfortunately, despite being 81 years old, the clueless Fauci has made it clear he isn’t planning on retiring anytime soon. “There’s no way I’m going to walk away from this until we get this under control,” he said in a recent interview, according to Breitbart. “I mean, that’s the purpose of what we do. That’s — that’s our mission in life. In the middle of it, I’m not going to walk away.”
