Fake Conservatives Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski Announce They'll Be Voting Against Education Secretary Nominee Betsy DeVos
This means that she starts with only 50 votes, at most. One less than that, actually, because Jeff Sessions won't be a Senator for long (and governor will have to appoint a replacement -- and I don't know how long that takes).
Without the new Liberal Twins, the best she can hope for is a 50-50 tie, assuming a Sessions replacement willing to vote for her, with Pence breaking the tie with an Aye.
The Liberal Twins say they're against her because she doesn't seem All-In on the current education system, but rather seems All-In on school choice and vouchers.
And that is her biggest selling point. The system is failed. It has failed for 50 years, despite nonstop headlines Education In Crisis and constant tinkering and supposed fixes from the Department of Education.
It's time to let parents choose, and to make schools accountable to their customers.
