Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) demanded the resignation of Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the leaders of the White House Coronavirus Task Force. Biggs argued that, with his containment policies, Fauci has caused “more damage” to the United States “than can ever be restored.”
Fauci is the head of the CCP [Chinese Communist Party] Virus expert committee in the United States and has been one of the major contributors to the federal, state, and local response to the CCP Virus over the past several months.
Although Fauci is a member of the White House Task Force, he has had serious differences with President Donald Trump over the handling of the pandemic, as the president questions the effectiveness of draconian isolation measures and the use of masks, among other policies.
Wrong! We have more cases because we have tested far more than any other country, 60,000,000. If we tested less, there would be less cases. How did Italy, France & Spain do? Now Europe sadly has flare ups. Most of our governors worked hard & smart. We will come back STRONG!

In a harsh column posted on the conservative website Townhall, on Aug. 7, Biggs suggested that Fauci and his colleague, Dr. Deborah Birx, have been running the country’s infectious disease agency for “long tenure.”
“Their policies and solutions do not value and protect all lives. Our future depends on these two exiting the stage immediately,” Biggs wrote on Twitter.
Sharing his article on the social network, Biggs added, “Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx have caused more damage to this nation with their COVID-19 [CCP Virus] prescriptions than can ever be restored.”

According to Just the News, led by noted investigative journalist John Solomon, Fauci and Birx have repeatedly defended their work, saying that the rise and fall in CCP Virus cases has been a product of states not staying closed long enough, not a result of their recommendations.
However, Biggs said that Fauci “has been the architect, if not the builder” of the policies applied by the CCP Virus, which have been “inconsistent, unpredictable, and destructive.”
Since the pandemic began, Fauci advised states and cities to block the movement of people, which led to a severe paralysis of the economy and a consequent increase in closed businesses and unemployed people.
“People who had mortgaged their homes or leveraged their retirement savings to open businesses saw their economic dreams vanish. But, Fauci told Congress he didn’t consider these things when crafting his policies,” Biggs said.
“His policies have resulted in an economic disaster, a public mental health crisis, and a secondary public health crisis that will become more visible in the coming months,” he added.
Biggs said that under Fauci’s policies, suicide rates “have soared.”
“Under Fauci’s guidance, domestic violence, child abuse, alcohol and drug abuse, have also skyrocketed,” he said, citing a recent Census Bureau survey that showed that one in three Americans suffers from clinical depression from confinement.
In the rush to save beds for patients with the CCP Virus, Biggs said, “The millions of patients stopped receiving necessary treatments for serious medical conditions, such as cancer, or who needed to be screened and didn’t receive the screening, diagnosis, or treatment necessary.”
Fauci was one of the great advocates of the use of the mask to supposedly protect people from the virus, a guideline that has been criticized by many specialists and leaders, such as President Trump himself.
However, during a recent interview, the official suggested that the spread of the CCP Virus could occur through the “aerosol,” although he later retracted this.
“That would leave spread by contact. And, it would mean, as we already suspect, that masking Americans does nothing, really, to stop the spread of COVID,” Biggs said.
Biggs went a step further, saying, “Ultimately, his counsel has transformed America’s vision of itself, from our belief in individual rights to the role of government.”
“His focus has been myopic and his public comments, that so many revere, have been casual, philosophical observations that are not necessarily based on science,” Biggs continued.
“The sell-by date of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s usefulness has expired. He should exit the public stage that he so obviously enjoys. His long tenure as a health care bureaucrat should come to an end. He has proven more adept as a showman than as a doctor,” Biggs wrote.
