Cheri Bustos said : “The teacher vacancy crisis hurts our most vulnerable children most. When we sell our teachers short by leaving them underpaid and undervalued, we sell our next generation short,” “As conversations about reopening our schools begin to ramp up in Illinois and across the country, the number of empty teacher positions has continued to skyrocket, and the COVID-19 pandemic has only compounded the problem. We cannot wait any longer. To directly address this issue and bolster efforts to recruit and retain teachers, I’m proud to put forward the RETAIN Act today with Senators Durbin, Baldwin and Smith to invest in our educators and improve the classroom experience for our students” External link

Cheri Bustos said ( about Affordable Care Act ) : “Why Washington Republicans would choose to trudge forward with a reckless lawsuit to strip coverage away from millions of Americans during a devastating pandemic is beyond me,” “Access to affordable health care must be a non-negotiable – especially in the middle of a pandemic. That’s why House Democrats have passed more than a dozen bills to drive down the costs of health care and prescription drugs. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Enhancement Act continues that commitment at a time when it is desperately needed, and Illinoisans are anxious about their physical and financial wellbeing. I will proudly support this legislation to lower premiums, protect people with pre-existing conditions, allow Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices and strengthen our health care system for working families” External link

Cheri Bustos said : “I cannot think of a more glaring example of government waste than paying nearly $1.4 billion to deceased people,” “While it was critical to get economic stimulus checks into American’s hands, today’s report reveals staggering waste that demonstrates the vast magnitude of these improper payments. The report also shows the IRS knowingly failed to use death records made available to them that could have saved hard-earned taxpayer dollars. It’s clear more needs to be done to prevent this from occurring in the future, and a good start would be implementing the GAO’s recommendation of providing access to the full set of death records to the Treasury as outlined in my legislation, the Stopping Improper Payments to Deceased People Act. It’s long past time we fully adopt the measures my colleagues and I have called for – including sharing this vital information with all appropriate federal agencies” External link
