House Oversight Committee chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY) is drawing attention to the need for term limits after former Biden chief medical advisor Anthony Fauci’s testimony before a congressional subcommittee earlier in the day. He made the remarks during a discussion on FBN’s “The Bottom Line.”

According to Comer, Fauci’s testimony, which showed an unwillingness to accept responsibility, demonstrated a need for term limits to be put in place.

Co-host Dagan McDowell had asked, “Going forward, how does Congress prevent someone from big-footing or, in his case, little-footing, say, Robert Redfield, at the CDC, who was truly supposed to be in charge of the pandemic response?”

In response, Comer responded, “Well, I think today was a perfect example of why we need term limits, not just for Congress, but for bureaucrats. Dr. Fauci has done more harm than any human being that I can think of in my lifetime to public education and to our economy, what he did to run up the deficit. He won’t take responsibility for anything. And what today’s hearing was about was not only to get the truth to the American people that he was wrong on so many of the damaging policies he had but to try to begin some type of accountability.”

“What Congress needs to do is to ensure that no one person ever has that much power again in the face of a public health crisis. Instead of one Dr. Fauci, we need three Dr. Faucis. And they need to cite their science. They need to cite their evidence and give the American people transparency when they make suggestions about public health,” he added.

During his hearing on Monday, Fauci was grilled by lawmakers about COVID-era restrictions recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, such as the six-feet distancing rule and the masking of schoolchildren.

Asked by Rep. Michael Cloud (R-TX) if school closures, business closures, church closures and the stay at home order placed on people were justified, Fauci said that “again, this was when we were trying to stop the tsunami of deaths that were occurring early on – how long you kept them going is debatable.”

Questioned about mask mandates which extended to children under the age of 5, Fauci explained that “5,000 people a day were dying” at the time the masks for the young ones were recommended.

He also defended the attempted forcing of vaccine mandates on students, employees and the military, saying, “Vaccines save lives. It is very, very clear that vaccines have saved hundreds of thousands of Americans and millions worldwide.”

“In the beginning, it clearly prevented infection in a certain percentage of people but the durability of its ability to prevent infection was not long. It was measured in months,” he continued.
