Let me just ask one question. Does anyone in here know a single educator that supports this appointment? I know plenty of educators from all parts of the country with all kinds of political leanings and not a one supports DeVos.
I feel like that should be a huge indicator that this woman is wholly unqualified.
Betsy DeVos' nomination to be the next education secretary was in serious trouble Wednesday, after two Senate Republicans said they would vote against her. Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, both said they would vote against her.
The two lost GOP votes could put DeVos at risk of being the first of President Trump's nominees not to be confirmed. The defections mean the most she could win is 50 votes from Republicans, and if she gets no support from Democrats, Vice President Mike Pence would have to vote in favor of her to break a 50-50 tie.
