Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene just introduced a bill that would “reduce Dr. Fauci’s salary to $0 until a new NIAID administrator is confirmed by the Senate.”— Andrew Desiderio (@AndrewDesiderio) April 1, 2021
The NIAID director’s appointment is not subject to Senate confirmation.
NIAID is the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
Does Greene have aides who write these bills? Wouldn't they reality check the content for her? Is this only about symbolic gesturing or is Greene one of those people who can't listen to reason when people try to explain reality to her?
We have an abundance of data favoring the latter explanation.
Andrew Desiderio is a congressional reporter for Politico. He covers the Senate, national security, and foreign policy.
