SCALISE: "Well, Bernie Sanders and the far left have been wanting to do this for a long time. It’s been a big cause of AOC, who helped write this bill. So, again, this is where the socialist left and the unions have literally driven this bill. This bill should be about helping kids get back in school. Instead, it’s about bowing to the teachers unions who don’t want kids to be back in school when all the science and the CDC Director said, 'Get the kids back in the classroom.' It’s important for their mental health. Suicides are up, depressions are up, kids aren’t learning as well. But they are going to keep holding those millions of kids behind in this bill. It’s a national crisis and it's a national disgrace."
