Talk about a good gig if you can get it. Anthony Fauci milked a 40+ year career working as a doctor for the Federal Government into a small fortune.
The 81-year-old delighted many by announcing he would fade off into the sunset when Joe Biden’s term as President ended, but give Fauci credit for making sure he holds on to his status of being the highest-paid federal employee as long as he can.
A group called Open The Books analyzed Fauci’s pension he’ll make after retirement, and it’s pretty staggering. In the first year after he ends his reign of gloom and doom and puts all his extra beloved facemasks into a storage facility, he will bank $414,000
That is just under his current salary of $480,654, and Fauci, in retirement, doing nothing, will make more than the President of the United States earns. ($400k)
And even if he continues to perform like most 80+-year-olds do in jobs that should belong to someone 30 years younger, in other words, poorly, he’s getting pay increases his last couple years all the way up to $530,000 in 2024.
There are 4.3 million people on the federal government payroll, and nobody makes more than Fauci.
These are hard-earned taxpayer dollars going to an elderly man whom many believe is not good at what he does.
Here’s what Open the Books CEO Adam Andrzejewski told Fox News.
“Dr. Fauci has been the highest-paid federal employee for years, and now we know that his pay will be history-making even in retirement. With the flexibility to spend his days as he wishes, Fauci will rake in more than the leader of the free world earns in a year. There’s seemingly no limit to the money taxpayers will have to spend on him in perpetuity.”
