WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congressman Bryan Steil (WI-01) released a statement after, once again, voting against the Pelosi Payoff.

“Congress should be focused on getting our way of life back by reopening schools and getting workers back to work. Instead of focusing on defeating coronavirus, Pelosi’s Payoff is a costly liberal spending wish list. Only 1% of this $1.9 trillion spending bill goes to accelerate vaccine distribution. Less than 10% of total funds combats coronavirus. Getting our kids safely back into the classroom should be our top priority, yet Pelosi’s bill has no requirement for schools to reopen. The bill also puts Wisconsin taxpayers on the hook to bailout the bad spending habits in Illinois. I am focused on getting our way of life back. This spending bill fails to do that,” said Steil.
