Members of the healthcare establishment and officials of the Democratic Party are concerned about Rand Paul’s potential rise to power on the Senate’s top-ranking Healthcare Committee.
Paul, a North Carolina Republican and current ranking member Richard Burr, will step down. Paul will become the most senior Republican on Senate Heath, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee (HELP), Committee when the next Congress convenes. If Republicans win Tuesday’s midterm elections, Paul could become the next chairman. This committee is responsible to investigate and oversee Biden’s COVID-19 responses.
It seems that some observers are afraid of this possibility.
A senior Biden administration official claimed to The Washington Post that several pandemic programs were authorized by the HELP Committee. Other officials were concerned about Paul’s inability to cooperate with the administration on the issue.
Paul was also criticised by other members of the healthcare industry. ”
A small group of Republicans believes that public health officials’ actions defied personal freedom, were reckless and they are not accountable. They have no idea about the changes needed to protect Americans.
Dr. Dr. He will, however, limit his cooperation to reasonable limits.
Paul and Fauci argued during hearings of HELP committee. Fauci accused Paul of fear-mongering, lying and threatening violence against him and his family.
Paul’s campaign website has a section called “#FireFauci”. Fauci said that he would be leaving his post as Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the end of 2022 to pursue other ventures.
Paul’s problems with COVID-19 go beyond that. These positions are not only against the Biden administration, but also many public health agencies.
This could not be relevant. Paul is also running to chair the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, although it isn’t clear which position he would choose if given the opportunity.
