Senate continues work on Biden’s plan to build back better

Negotiations continue in the Senate on a two-track process to advance key elements of President Biden’s plan to build back better. The Senate may vote again this week to move ahead on a bipartisan roads and bridges infrastructure bill that could attract the 60 votes necessary to defeat a filibuster. But the second, more comprehensive part of the process is an emerging $3.5 trillion budget resolution that could clear the Senate with a simple Democratic majority of 50 votes plus Vice President Harris. Passage of that resolution or framework would then lead to months of work on the actual legislation, which can—and should—include NEA priorities such as modernizing school facilities, making education more affordable, providing free school meals for all students, enhancing worker and family protections, and fair taxation that invests in America.


Email your senators and representative and urge them to enact and expand President Biden’s plan to build back better.

  2. Minority leader McConnell stated it clearly, “100 percent of our [Republican] focus is on stopping this new [Biden/Harris] administration.”
    In the previous 6 years of Republican dominance of the Senate, there have been 2 major accomplishments: $2 Trillion in tax welfare give-aways to the rich and rich corporations, stacking the Federal courts with Federalist Society, activist, extremist, reactionary judges. And, of course, there’s been obstruction on nearly every issue, public education included, of use to most Americans.
    We need to #EndTheFilibuster to stop the obstruction or, true to McConnell’s words, we will lose our ability to progress as a nation.

  3. I would also like schools to pay teachers a fair wage and end the “white zones”. ALL teachers deserve raises117304teachers who have their master’s plus forty hours of education. “White zones”in pay scales should not exist. Please look into this and help us teachers who lost years for being stay home mom’s, or single moms who couldn’t afford to go back to school because we had to pay for daycare instead. Please help.

  4. Please include tuition relief/forgiveness for people who have worked for their school district for 10 or more years!
    When the pandemic started March 2020, I have worked every day in my elementary schools to support in-person learning, hybrid learning and distance learning in both the classroom and the school-age daycare program taking care of first responder’s kids!

  5. We need to move NOW. The other party is not a player; they have left the field; they are in the Mar-a-Lago clubhouse.

    Dems need to go it alone and quickly.

  6. Our children need all the help they can get! They have a lot to catch up with; not only academically, but socially. I anticipate a rough year ahead on several levels and sincerely believe that the more support we can all get from you, the better the outcome will be.
    Please help us do that! Thank you.
