Dr. Fauci demands Congress pass Joe Biden’s trillion-dollar stimulus package before allowing schools to reopen. This demand comes after CDC released new guidelines last week that schools can take to get children back in the classroom.
The leading White House doctor brushed off concerns from teachers, claiming other mitigation methods besides the vaccine will keep students and teachers safe. While this is true, it still remains unacceptable
When pressed on the idea of CDC guidelines vs requirements, Fauci unleashed, doing his part to push the Biden administration’s radical spending policies. “That’s the reason national relief if crucial and necessary. Schools need more resources from the federal government,” he said.
Fauci added that it’s important to get children back to school in a way that is “safe for the children, but also safe for the teachers and the other educators.”
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky discussed the relationship between school re-opening guidelines and vaccination requirements over the weekend, as well.
As reported by The Daily Wire:
…Walensky claims that teachers do not to be vaccinated in order to return to classrooms but suggested “universal masking” to ensure teacher and student safety.
“…we don’t believe a vaccine is a prerequisite for reopening schools,” Walensky said.
Last week, committees in the House refashioned parts of the stimulus bill, which is expected to be put into one piece of legislation early next week by the House Budget Committee.
The Democrats picked the pill apart, hoping to wedge in their radical economic policies. A mandatory $15 minimum wage is currently being debated. The bill also includes “$1,400 per-person direct payments, an expanded child tax credit, federal aid to state and local governments and an expansion of unemployment insurance with $400-per-week federal payments through Aug. 29.”
In order to pass the bill, the Democrats are using a sneaky process called reconciliation which could potentially jam through the trillion-dollar spending without Republican approval.
The legality of reconciliation remains unclear specifically on the increase of minimum wage.
President Biden met with a bipartisan group of U.S. mayors and governors on Friday to “discuss the vital need to pass the American Rescue Plan,” as described by the President’s remarks released by the White House.
Some who attended the meeting reportedly said that states and cities need more money, but others thought the package was too expensive.
The Democrats are prepared to pass the massive spending bill with zero votes from Republicans.
