WASHINGTON, D.C. – In case you missed it, Senator Rick Scott wrote a letter to the editor for the Wall Street Journal in response to a recent op-ed, School Isn’t Closed for Lack of Money. In his letter, Senator Scott reiterates that schools already have the resources and funding needed to re-open safely without the hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars Democrats pushed for in their $1.9 trillion “COVID” spending package.

In the letter to the editor, Senator Rick Scott wrote, “… Every student in this nation deserves the option of in-person learning. Is another $128 billion to schools, most of which won’t be doled out until the 2022 school year and beyond, really the right answer? No. What we need are elected officials with courage who actually care more about the well-being and educational needs of our kids rather than a campaign contribution from teachers unions.”
