Ironic, that the same people who complained about the lack of diversity in Trump’s cabinet, can’t get behind a woman selected to head up the Department of Education. A woman who has set education and making great education available to ALL children a priority in her life, in fact, is unaccepted by the Democrats on the committee. Doesn’t this just float your boat?
The catastrophic reality of education these days is the acknowledgement that public education isn’t working for 76% of students now attending public school. And the committee has determined that if you’re not a part of that failing infrastructure, you’re uniquely unqualified for the job of running that failing piece of infrastructure, according to Chuck Schumer.
Confirmation of Betsy DeVos is said to be the narrowest approval of a Cabinet nominee in the nation’s history. All 48 Democratic caucus members, and two Republicans, Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Susan Collins (Maine), have stated they believe DeVos not qualified for the job. The remaining 50 Republicans expected to vote for DeVos remain a tie, only to be broken by a vote from Vice President Pence.
Pence has stated, “We’re very confident that Betsy DeVos is going to be the next secretary of education, and it’ll be my high honor to cast the deciding vote on the floor of the Senate next week.”
Nancy Pelosi says she can’t work with ‘President Bush.’
A day after House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was grilled by Meet The Press host Chuck Todd on whether her party’s leadership was out of touch with the current political climate, the nearly three-decade veteran of Congress mistakenly referred to President Donald Trump as “President Bush.”
This is said to be the first time that a vice president’s tie breaking vote is needed to confirm a Cabinet secretary. According to Daniel Holt, assistant historian of the Senate Historical Office, who related that the last tie breaking vote, by Richard B. Cheney happened nine years ago.
DeVos has faced unprecedented wave of partisan opposition. Union, NEA backers and those riding on the dollars of teacher’s unions continue to scream bloody hell and oppose her confirmation. Their reasoning to reject the nomination bearing little resemblance to a qualifications hearing, and more likely resembling a witch hunt as question after question is posed in an effort to imply lack of professional experience within the failed public school system.
Ridiculed because DeVos and her family are major donors to senators who will ultimately confirm her nomination, Betsy and family have spent more than three decades using their hard earned wealth and political clout to advocate for alternative school options. They support taxpayer-funded vouchers to help parents pay tuition for private and religious schools. She advocates for loosely regulated charter schools. Ultimately, Betsy DeVos advocates to support freedom of educational choice for ALL students.
ALL STUDENTS DESERVE QUALITY EDUCATION OPTIONS!
Defended by Republicans as an outsider, a conservative who would shrink the federal influence. Betsy DeVos’ free-market approach to education doesn’t sit well with the economically demanding unions and teachers. Even after mobilizing their considerable forces against Betsy, her efforts continue to be directed at performance, basic policy of helping children to obtain better educations, and the ideology of “school choice” to ensure quality schools for vulnerable children.
