How about waiting to see what she actually does and then complain?

EVERY PERSON on that committee who voted for DeVos is to be blamed. She will ruin this country with her ridiculous and inept ..........
DeVoses' long support of vouchers for private, religious schools; conservative Christian groups like the Foundation for Traditional Values, which has pushed to soften the separation of church and state; and organizations like Michigan's Mackinac Center for Public Policy, which has championed the privatization of the education system.
Added Dick DeVos: "As we look at many communities in our country, the church has been displaced by the public school as the center for activity...[I]t is certainly our hope that more and more churches will get more and more active and engaged in education."
Collins, Murkowski to vote no on education secretary nominee Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska both said Wednesday they would not vote to support President Donald Trump's choice for education secretary, Betsy DeVos, the first two sitting Republican senators to publicly say they wouldn't back one of Trump's Cabinet nominees. "I simply cannot support her confirmation," Collins said on the Senate floor. Without Murkowski or Collins, DeVos would need the vote of Vice President Mike Pence to win approval if all Democrats voted against her. www.cnn.com...
It’s no secret that the Republican party is actively trying to turn this nation into some form of theocracy. Well, at least socially. The GOP is some kind of hybrid where their economic ideologies are based on the philosophies of Ayn Rand (a devout atheist) while their social ideologies are based on some warped view of “Christianity” that I call “Republicanity.” You might be saying to yourself, “It doesn’t make any sense for a political party to base their economic ideologies on someone who didn’t believe in religion while supporting social issues based on religion.”
And you would be right. It makes absolutely no sense. Which is another reason why I don’t consider most of these people actual Christians.
[In November 2013] twelve new reports were jointly announced by CMD and ProgressNow research groups in a press release.
The findings of these comprehensive reports expose the involvement of a nefarious network operating under the umbrella of the
State Policy Network (SPN), an $83 million web of right-wing "think tanks" embedded in every state across the country. This network, operating under guidance from the Koch brothers, Charles and David, is responsible for many "spin-off" organizations and groups such as American's for Prosperity, American's for Tax Reform and the Tea Party.
Through their joint efforts our public school systems, healthcare, rights to vote, tort "reforms" and other key initiatives are funded and the conservative position on each advanced. In effect this is a highly organized and influential network used to advance a political agenda expressing only one point of view. Additionally nearly every member of this Cabal operates as a non-profit entity with tax exempt status, allowing the millions spent to be recouped as tax deductible "contributions" and/or operations. The goal sought is to allow a minority to gain and exert control and power over the majority.
