Millions of Americans are sick of Dr. Fauci and would love to see him retire.
If he does walk away from his job however, he is set to receive the largest government pension in U.S. history.
Given how many people have lost their jobs as a result of Fauci’s policies, this hardly seems fair.
Dr. Anthony Fauci’s Golden Parachute Will Exceed $350,000 Per Year – The Largest In U.S. Federal Government History
On Christmas Eve, Dr. Anthony Fauci turned 81. However, he is not retiring just yet. If he did, Fauci would reap the largest federal retirement package in U.S. history.
Our auditors at OpenTheBooks.com estimate Dr. Fauci’s annual retirement would exceed $350,000. Thereafter, his pension and benefits would continue to increase through annual cost-of-living adjustments. Fauci has 55 years of service as a federal employee.
For the second year in a row, Fauci was the most highly compensated federal employee and out earned the president, four star generals, and roughly 4.3 million of his colleagues. As 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.
Fauci is currently the Chief Medical Advisor to the President. However, his big salary boost came in 2004 under the George W. Bush Administration (as we reported earlier at Forbes) when Fauci received a “permanent pay adjustment” for his biodefense work. In January 2000, Fauci was also appointed to the Ready Reserve Corps, a corps of “officers on full-time extended active duty.”
Does he really deserve this?
Dr. Fauci will get a $350,000 per year retirement pension.
Meanwhile, the Americans laid off due to his vaccine mandates will get $0.

Fauci retirement estimate is $350k/yr.
Guess where part of that money comes from—American tax payers.
Accountability will come with an America First Congress.
Remember what happened to Andy McCabe’s retirement benefits in Congress?
Fauci will beg for that kind of mercy.

Fauci might want to act before the 2022 midterms.
There are a few Republicans who may take issue with his retirement package.
