“Fauci is currently the highest-paid employee in the federal government, bringing in $434,321 in 2020 which is more than the president”
Few people influencing U.S. government policy right now are more divisive than Dr. Anthony Fauci. If you’re a host on MSNBC, you might own a Fauci action figure or prayer candle. If you’re a freedom-loving American who is exhausted by COVID policies, you would be happy never to see Fauci again.
One thing is sure. No matter how you feel about Fauci, he will retire a very wealthy man.
Fauci is set to collect a record amount when he retires.
Andrew Mark Miller reports at FOX News:
Fauci on track to collect largest federal retirement in U.S. history: report
Dr. Anthony Fauci said recently that he does not plan on retiring soon but if were to step down as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the 81-year-old would reportedly be eligible for the largest federal retirement package in American history.
According to Forbes auditors at OpenTheBooks.com, Fauci’s 55 years of service in the federal government qualifies him for an annual retirement package of more than $350,000 which would increase through annual cost-of-living adjustments.
Fauci is currently the highest-paid employee in the federal government, bringing in $434,321 in 2020 which is more than the president, the highest-ranking commanders in the military, and the roughly 4.3 million employees in the federal government.
Tori Richards of the Washington Examiner outlines Fauci’s compensation history:
His eye-popping retirement will be the largest in U.S. history. Open the Books calculated his retirement earnings at 80% of his highest three-year average plus cost of living increases.
In contrast, 1 in 4 people in the United States have no retirement savings, and those who do are not saving enough. The median retirement balance for people ages 55 to 64 is $120,000, which would yield just $1,000 a month during retirement years, Yahoo News reported.
But Fauci’s finances have been on a steep upward climb for years. Between 2004 and 2007, the Bush administration awarded him a 68% increase to his $200,000 yearly salary to “compensate him for the level of responsibility,” according to an Open the Books investigation.
Between 2018 and 2020, he earned $1.252 million. For the second year in a row, he has out-earned the president, four-star generals, and any other category within the federal sector. Fauci has 55 years of service and could have retired long ago.
People have thoughts about 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.
