Watch: Biden Bows To Teachers Unions Again In Word Salad About Opening Schools After A Report Shows Teachers Unions Own Him
There is a growing tidal wave coming that is bipartisan and grass roots, people want schools open.
Kids are suffering through the pandemic and American children are falling behind. There is a growing movement from those on the left and right to get kids back in school and it seemed that Chuck Todd of NBC News “Meet the Press” was trying to warn the Biden administration. During their Sunday show Chuck Todd did a segment showing Democrat Governors and Mayors expressing their frustration with teachers unions blocking getting children back to in person school.
Guest David French warned that kids are suffering and if Biden really wants a bipartisan surge he’ll support kids going back to the classroom.

There is just one problem, teachers union literally own Biden, which is why during an interview on CBS Biden made this ridiculous statement.

Notice during the interview Biden didn’t run on the platform he said above for schools to reopen and in the above interview he listed the demands of teachers unions to open.
Respect for “science?” Really because his own CDC director said teachers don’t need to be vaccinated to open and even the great Dr. Fauci said, “There is a risk to almost everything we’re doing in this environment. So the question is relative risk. I mean, how much do you want to diminish the risk? You can have children going back to school, as we’ve had in the past, without necessarily having everyone vaccinated, all the teachers or all the students vaccinated.”
Fauci said the “default should be” to get kids back into school “as quickly as we can.”
But Biden is beholden to the teachers unions because they gave him a boat load of money during the election.
A Fox News report revealed that the Biden campaign received more contributions from teachers unions than any other candidate in the 2020 election cycle.
From Fox News:
Biden’s campaign raked in just over $232,000 from teachers unions during the 2020 election cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics’ “Open Secrets” website. The site says the National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) “account for practically all” political spending from teachers unions.
The second-highest recipient was Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who got $50,996.The amount of money that went directly to any one candidate, however, pales in comparison to the money teachers unions donated to liberal groups in general — over $23.5 million from the NEA and over $14 million from the AFT. Combined, those two groups spent $43 million in political expenditures during the 2020 election cycle, according to Open Secrets.
Biden’s failure to stand up to the teachers unions is purely political and treacherous
A disastrous experiment with the lives of millions kids
