Top Biden aide says schools should get money before they reopen

When asked on CNN what schools would need to reopen safely, Klain simply responded, “Money.”

“That’s why the president of the United States sent a plan to Congress even before he took office, to make the investments you need to make the schools safe,” he said.

“President Biden has sent a plan to Congress that would make sure that a majority of our schools can be open within 100 days. We need Congress to pass that plan so we can do the kinds of things you need to do so that schools can be safe, so that teachers can be safe, so that students can be safe. Sadly, it costs money,” he added.
