According to a new report by Forbes, infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci is the highest paid employee in the U.S. federal government.

In 2019, his salary was $417,608, the highest salary out of all four million federal government employees.

In comparison, Speaker Nancy Pelosi will earn $223,500 this year, U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts will make $270,700 and Members in the House of Representatives and Senators will make $174,000, Forbes reports.

Dr. Fauci even made more than the salary of the President of the United States, which is $400,000.

In a ten-year period between 2010 and 2019, Fauci made $3.6 million in salary. Since 2014, Fauci’s pay increased from $335,000 to the current $417,608.

In an Instagram interview in August 2020, actor Matthew McConaughey asked Fauci if he had millions of dollars invested in the vaccines.

Fauci laughed and said, “Matthew, no, I got zero! I am a government worker. I have a government salary,” failing to mention that his “government salary” was the largest in the entire federal government.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with Florida state health officials, are investigating what is believed to be a case of monkeypox. A statement from the Florida Department of Health in Broward County stated the “case is related to international travel, and the person remains isolated.”

Late Friday a New York City resident also tested positive for the virus that causes monkeypox, and is the state’s first confirmed case. On Sunday, President Joe Biden made his first public statements about the outbreaks, saying the recent spread of monkeypox in at least 12 countries are “something that everybody should be concerned about.”

Axios reports a person was confirmed positive with the virus in Massachusetts, New York and “roughly a half dozen other cases” are “being monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
