It is a bill that's fully paid for, as you know, and it seeks to help states keep teachers on board so the class sizes are not exploding and we think that is going to keep about 160,000 teachers on the job this fall, which we think is positive for students, for parents and our country...

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer says voters in Massachusetts sent the message that “our country is not working right,” and Congress needs to “turn [its] frustration into something productive.”
