DeVos confirmed as Secretary of Education
Yes, frightening. It should be noted that 2 Republican Senators grew some ethical spine and voted against DeVos, Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. This forced a 50-50 tie vote and VP Pence, for the first time in US history on a Cabinet nominee, broke the tie for DeVos. Say good bye to public education and hello to for-profit corporate education, which will filter out those pesky things like human rights or environmental protections, as well as that evil multi-culturalism.
