Republican Senator Rand Paul is waging a war against Anthony “America’s Doctor” with overwhelming support from his GOP colleagues.
The Kentucky Republican introduced an amendment yesterday to ban any taxpayer dollars from funding Fauci’s favorite “research” labs in Wuhan, China. The measure passed with flying colors with not one Republican dissenter in the bunch.
“Any gain-of-function research should not be funded in China with U.S. taxpayer dollars, and I recommend a yes vote.” Sen. Paul said on the Senate floor.
Lawmakers literally spoke their support of the amendment through voice vote, which passed unanimously. Paul’s takedown of Anthony Fauci earned massive adulation – lawmakers erupted in cheers upon the passing of his amendment.

Just two weeks ago, Sen. Rand Paul pressed Dr. Fauci during a Senate hearing, demanding answers from the “infectious disease expert” to hair-raising questions of why U.S. health institutions were funding gain-of-function research in China – specifically the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Watch their fiery exchange here:

Senator Rand Paul directly asked Dr. Fauci: “Do you still support funding of the lab in Wuhan?
Here’s Fauci’s incredible response:
@RandPaul: “Dr. Fauci, do you still support funding of the NIH funding of the lab in Wuhan?”#Fauci: “Sen. Paul, with all due respect you are entirely and completely incorrect… We have not funded gain of function research on this virus…"

However, just this week Dr. Fauci admitted that the NIH, under his tutelage, sent the Wuhan Institute of Virology over $600,000 in a five-year span to research whether COVID-19 and other viruses found in bats were transmittable to humans. Fauci still “categorically” denies funding any gain-of-function research.

Anthony “America’s Doctor” Fauci – the highest paid member of the federal government – calls the $600,000 in taxpayer dollars sent to the Wuhan lab “modest.”
That tell you everything you need to know.
