“Last year, I voted for bipartisan COVID relief packages that brought much needed relief to Michigan families, health care professionals, schools, and small businesses. A lot of this funding is still available and the Biden Administration is not being honest when it says it needs tonight's bill to re-open schools. There is still $59 billion in approved school aid that has not been spent and scientific research shows it's safe to re-open classrooms and let every American student have the opportunity for in-person learning. “Democrats should join Republicans in getting students back in the classroom, making vaccines available to everyone who wants one, and letting small businesses safely and fully re-open. Unfortunately, tonight they decided to pass a bill that will spend billions to bailout state governments while putting more burdens on small businesses that have been devastated by the pandemic and state-imposed restrictions. Today’s bill is not COVID relief. It is a repeat of the failed Obama-Biden spending policies that led to the slowest economic recovery in American history."

“President Biden’s executive order takes money from hardworking Michigan families and sends it to foreign countries where it will be used to support the abortion of innocent, unborn children,” said Moolenaar. “Taxpayer money should never be used to support abortion and today I was proud to visit with two local organizations here in Michigan who are supporting parents and children during and after pregnancy. These organizations do outstanding work to help young families and I know people across mid and northern Michigan are thankful for all they do to protect the vulnerable in our region.”

I am confident that they will represent Michigan well both in the classroom and through military service.”

Their resiliency has been inspiring and I am proud to join them and Congresswoman Foxx this week in supporting educational choice for America’s students.”
