Dr. Anthony Fauci, Chief Medical Advisor to President Biden and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the National Institute of Health, is set to have a record breaking retirement from the federal government at over $350,000, according to an analysis by OpenTheBooks.com.
Fauci is currently the highest paid government bureaucrat with his 2020 salary coming in at $434,312.
The analysis is based on information from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management where Fauci’s long government employment of 55 years will translate to “80 percent of [their] high-3 average salary, plus credit for [their] sick leave,” as noted by Adam Andrzejewski in his Forbes commentary.
If true, Fauci would get the biggest retirement in history from the federal government.

Critics of Fauci pounced on the news about his pension.
Dr. Fauci should be in jail for misleading the American people for the last 2 years and now he is receiving up to $350,000 for RETIREMENT. This is outrageous! Sign our petition if you agree we shouldn’t give Fauci a PENNY!: https://t.co/V0rV14khQz

#Fauci gets paid more than the President of the United States and will get a $350,000+ annual retirement package…
Seems legit for someone who has been wrong about everything

While Fauci gets slammed from the political right, he is a favorite of Democrats and their media allies.

Regardless of what the public thinks, Fauci is essentially a permanent fixture on Sunday morning TV shows.

Fauci’s exorbitant salary and outrageously high pension adds a new meaning of “government service.”
Most outrageous, Fauci failed at his primary mission of stopping pandemics.
On that basis alone, Fauci should have been fired and not richly rewarded for failing Americans.
