    Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) threatened Dr. Anthony Fauci during a testy hearing on Wednesday, making it abundantly clear that things would be different if Republicans were to gain control of Congress in the fast-approaching midterm elections.

    Fauci, who was on Capitol Hill to discuss the federal government's response to monkeypox, has sparred with the Kentucky Senator on a number of occasions - and Wednesday's hearing was no exception.

    WATCH:


    Paul began with a video of Fauci responding to a question about a patient who wondered whether it would be necessary or wise to get a flu shot after previously being infected with the virus - to which Fauci said no. He explained at the time that previous infection provided protection just like a vaccine would.

    "When people decry vaccine hesitancy, it's coming from the gobbledygook that you give us. You're not paying attention to the science. The very basic science is that previous infection provides a level of immunity," Paul said. "If you ignore that in your studies, if you don't present that in your committees, you're not being truthful."

    Fauci objected, first claiming that the video was "out of context" and then insisting, "I have never, ever denied fundamental immunology. In fact, I wrote the chapter in the Textbook of Medicine on fundamental immunology."

    Paul pushed back, however, noting that in nearly every study determining whether or not additional booster shots were necessary - particularly with regard to COVID vaccines - no one was considering whether or not a person had been previously infected as a factor.

    Paul then turned on Fauci directly, adding, "We've been asking you and you refuse to answer whether anybody on the vaccine committees gets royalties from the pharmaceutical companies. I asked you last time and what was your response? 'We don't have to tell you.'"

    "But I'll tell you this, when we get in charge, we're going change the rules and you will have to divulge where you get your royalties from, from what companies, and if anybody on the committee has a conflict of interest. We're gonna learn about it. I promise you that," he said.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
