Republicans introduce bill to fire Anthony Fauci
Several Republican lawmakers, eager to blame a US government official for the response to the coronavirus pandemic, introduced a bill Tuesday to fire Anthony Fauci, the face of American efforts to combat Covid-19. Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene led a handful of colleagues in announcing the so-called Fire Fauci Act, which would reduce the famed infectious disease expert's government salary to zero and require the Senate to confirm someone to fill his position. Conservatives accuse him of misleading Americans and providing contradictory advice on masks and social distancing. The bill is not expected to receive a floor vote in the Democratically-controlled House.
