Pence Schools Dems: VP Deciding Vote on DeVos for EdSec

by
February 7, 2017

School choice advocate Betsy DeVos was narrowly confirmed Tuesday as the next education secretary despite deep opposition from teachers unions and other groups, after Vice President Pence intervened to cast a historic tie-breaking vote.

Pence’s vote marked the first time in American history a vice president has broken a tie on a Cabinet nominee’s Senate confirmation – and the first tie-breaking vote by a VP since 2008. Pence was compelled to cast the vote after two Republican senators – Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska – joined all 48 Senate Democrats in opposing DeVos.

“The Senate being equally divided, the vice president votes in the affirmative and the nomination is confirmed,” Pence said, stepping into his role as president of the Senate in a brief appearance on Capitol Hill.

With his support, DeVos was confirmed on a 51-50 vote.

The confirmation of the wealthy GOP donor will mark a sharp change in philosophy at the helm of federal education policy, given DeVos’ history boosting alternatives to public education.

“She’s led the most effective school reform movement of the last 30 years,” Senate education committee Chairman Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., said moments earlier on the floor, shoring up DeVos’ Republican support.

  • justinwachin says:

    Public education needs to be reformed. Taxpayers spend a lot of money each year on the local, state and federal level. In return we get a mediocre system turning out mediocre students. We need to have competent teachers and school administrators who can spend money wisely. Hopefully Ms. DeVos will be able to reform our nation’s education system.

  • Joe Don says:

    60 years of Democrats running the education system and what has happened to our schools? Kids who cannot read, write, or do math. Keep them ignorant. Keep them poor. Keep them voting Democrat. Shameful.

  • Bob says:

    Give DeVos a year or two, and the country will want Pence and DeVos’ heads on a platter. And rightfully so. He’ll wish he was back in Indiana living on the farm and stealing from his neighbors. And you Low-IQ, Uneducated can get ready to pay about $8,000.00 PER CHILD-PER YEAR FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL and A HELL OF A LOT MORE FOR EACH HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT. Just remember, PRIVATE SCHOOLS MEAN PROFIT SCHOOLS! You’ll PAY THROUGH THE NOSE and like it, suckers!!!

    1. Ghost Forever says:

      I’ll pay for private schools verses the dumbing down that the kids are receiving now.

      1. Bob says:

        If you have kids in school, you can bet you butt you’ll pay. And yes, the Republicons want dumbing down so they can hire them for $4.00 an hour. Don’t you get it!!!

        1. ABO says:

          Just want to thank you for your little string of childish tantrums that show everyone who reads them just exactly what you are.

        2. Ghost Forever says:

          I have a 15 year old grand daughter graduating from HS in May. I paid for her private education proudly. And will pay for her college when she decides she’s ready. Public schools and common core are a joke! She will be 16 in July and done with HS before she gets her drivers license.

          1. Bob says:

            Whoooo – Whoopie. So you support Education for PROFIT. I’m happy for you and the Republicons are THRILLED TO DEATH!!

    2. Glenda Jordan says:

      I have no problem with that….considering how our tax $ is being wasted I would rather see it go to quality education.

      1. Bob says:

        Jordan – “Quality Education,” surely you jest. Are you hoping for a spot on the “Apprentice?”

    3. Mike N says:

      Obviously you are a lib. Only the libs will want their heads. The remainder will thank them for the improvement in our educational system which rates 25th world wide.

      1. Bob says:

        Mike N – Call me what you wish, Mr. Uneducated, but I notice you didn’t address my comment about what the costs will be when the Republicons establish their Schools for Profit Plan. Picture a family with 3 or kids in school. Enough said. Of course Sec. DeVos bought her office by giving more than 2 hundred million (that’s $ 200,000,000.00) dollars to elect Republicons to office. Wow, Citizens United REALLY CAN BUY ELECTIONS! As if we didn’t know that!!

        1. Mike N says:

          First I apologize. I should have said progressive rather than lib. Since Unions can buy elections why shouldn’t corporations be able to do the same. We come from the other side of the fence and will never agree. I favor school choice. Give DeVos a chance and see what happens.

          1. ABO says:

            Isn’t it strange that these kind, inclusive, understanding liberal/progressives are anything but?

          2. Bob says:

            N – I have to agree with you, we’ll never come to agreement. Just wondering, do you or did you ever have kids or grandkids in private schools? Something that struck me while watching DeVos’ hearing, she couldn’t answer, NOT ONE QUESTION. Except the one about guns in schools. She said guns might be needed to protect against grisly bears. Many bears in your neighborhood? Not mine.

          3. Mike N says:

            I have 7 grandkids, but none in private schools. I went to a Catholic school in the primary grades. I have one grandson is a school for exceptional kids, but none in private schools

    4. ABO says:

      Well, aren’t you just the typical liberal. Just full of hateful rhetoric, insults and baseless accusations. Grow up you childish, pathetic rube.

      1. bambi69 says:

        Lookie, lookie — pot calling kettle black. Just what are you, ABO, doing if not spouting hateful rhetoric, insults and baseless accusations. (to say nothing about your childish “Grow up you childish, pathetic rube.” ). I guess that doesn’t count as an insult either, or does it???

        1. ABO says:

          Hey, you earned it. Every word of it. You started right in without any attempt at reasonable discussion whatsoever, you just start throwing around your insults and now you’re actually going to whine about it when you get it back???Give me a break. As far as “Grow up you childish, pathetic rube” you bought and paid for it. If you can’t take it DON’T DISH IT OUT!!!

      2. Bob says:

        Too bad you can’t handle the truth. But then, you Uneducated are used to Fake News and Alternative Truths. Keep watching Fox Boobs for all your Twitter News from the Tax Evader, Pervert you adore!!

        1. ABO says:

          You wouldn’t know the truth if it bit you in the face. You’ve shown everyone with your moronic blather just who the uneducated one is. You are, in the words of the great Ian Anderson, Thick as a Brick.

    Imagine, an Education System where TRUTH is taught and hyperbole is rooted out and dismissed.

    1. wordwaryor says:

      Only if Devos does something about the “New Civics”. Kids are being indoctrinated into Socialist Progressive action …. with schools literally abandoning the teaching of traditional history and civics ….. to be taught “New Civics” = Civic Engagement …. You all need to get up to speed on this travesty in education and especially colleges.

      We are notifying State Legislators in our state about the insidious evil that New Civics is doing in our state colleges and high schools.

      1. CrustyOldGeezer says:

    The vote by the liberal Democrat senators show that they do NOT care for the kids or helping anyone except themselves. They need to control the education of kids so they will have more low informed voters. Those voters are generally for libs and Demorats.

  • notalib says:

    Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska—vote these two turncoat RINO’s out. They lean too far left.

    1. i have noticed that about these two….

  • John R Hanson says:

    I want everyone to remember exactly what went on here. The President wanted to shape his cabinet according to the agenda he proposed to the American people who then voted this man Donald J. Trump into office as the President of our land. The Democrats still reeling over the loss of Hillary Clinton and the rest of her crime family cannot seem to get it. The American people want Trump’s agenda and not yours Mr. Democrat. So get over it and become a REAL American for once and get with the program and allow Trump’s policies to reign in the land.

    1. Gary Border says:

      John R Hanson –

      Nicely stated!

      1. John R Hanson says:

        Thank you.

  • bobnstuff says:

    Isn’t if cool you can buy a cabinet post under the Trump administration. Here is the proof that you don’t need to have any qualification to hold a cabinet post in the Trump White House, only money. Toomey vote only cost her $58,000.

    1. Webb says:

      Wow…
      Really, you will decide to spread a lie that Toomey voted for a $58,ooo dollar donation…
      Prove the lie…

          1. bobnstuff says:

            Explain , with all the people out there, why her? There are experts in alternative education, there are people who have worked both side, publican and private schools. There are no shortage of truly qualified people out there. Other then her money what other reason is there. She has zero track record of success in the field. She hasn’t even sat on a school board.The only good thing is that the federal government really doesn’t have all that much power in our educational system. The power base is in the states and the local school boards. The federal government only provides about 10% of the money.

          2. Webb says:

            Bob…

            The one topic you avoid is Teachers Unions…
            Interested Only in Pay and Retirement not the education of the students…
            Devos may or may not be good for Federal Education…but Teachers Unions surely are not!!

          3. bobnstuff says:

            Less then half the teachers are members of unions. I don’t care if shes good or bad for them. There are some very good unions out there. I have three children in education, two have worked both public schools and charter schools, My son in law it principle of a charter and he is very anti DeVoe as are all the teachers I know. My guess is you don’t know very many teachers.

          4. bobnstuff says:

            Toomey, like many senators voting on DeVos’ confirmation, has received donations from the nominee.

            Surely All 51 have…

          6. bobnstuff says:

            Sure they have. Shes been working on this for some time. You know shes not much good when even the charter school people don’t like her. Toomey’s phone wasn’t taking calls this week-end. There have never been so many people coming out against a cabinet apointment as there was on this one. It’s one for the books.

          7. ABO says:

            You can’t actually believe that anyone possessed of any intellect whatsoever is going to buy your idiotic, childish stories. Or are you really that abysmally disconnected from reality?

          8. bobnstuff says:

            I guess you support her even though she really isn’t qualified in any way for the job. Tell me if you were a boss hiring someone for this job, looking at her resume would hers be at the top of the stack? There are hundreds of people with far better backgrounds out there. Even if you want someone to privatize the public schools there are much better people for the job.

          9. ABO says:

            If you know of so many tremendously better qualified candidates for the position let’s hear it. name a few for us. C’mon bobnstuff, let’s hear it. give us the scoop and try not to push your BS from opensecrets and HuffPo.

          10. bobnstuff says:

            Richard Barth ,CEO KIPP
            Wendy Kopp, Founder of Teach for America
            Jim Peyser Secretary of Education Massachusetts

            Here’s three right off the top of my head. they have run successful programs.

          11. ABO says:

            Funny thing, bob, I live in one of the most entirely liberal states in the country. One that claims to have made huge strides in improving the state’s educational system and yet myself and other business people here have a very difficult time finding potential employees that are not functionally illiterate, having passed through the school system with honors. I know several business owners in Massachusetts that would similarly disagree with your assessment of Peyser. I do love how you claim that “there are hundreds of people with far better backgrounds out there”, then you list three, with no numbers or anything else to back up your claim. It’s easy to sit there and put this kind of nonsense out there with nothing real to back it up. Not nearly as easy as it is having to deal with the real world results that effect one’s daily business life.

          12. bobnstuff says:

            In DeVoe’s case you could go out on the street and half the people there would be more qualified. Pick the president form all most any of the major Universities, the head of almost any major school district, the janitor at my local high school. DeVoe has only one qualification, the same one as most of Trumps appointments, Money.

            I have found that employers who have problems finding good employees like to blame the schools instead of the fact that only people who are despite would work for them. I have hired thousands of people over the years and have found that the better the employer the easier it is for them to find and keep good people. Right now anyone worth employing already has a job so if you want a good employee you have to steal them form someone else.

          13. ABO says:

            You continue to provide absolutely nothing to support your ridiculous allegations and you aren’t even capable of spelling her name right. You’re obviously a product of the wonderful public school system that you are so impressed with. Your comment that “I have found that employers who have problems finding good employees like to blame the schools instead of the fact that only people who are despite would work for them” is a fine example of your functional illiteracy, to say nothing of your complete lack of knowledge of business. “I have hired thousands of people over the years”, obviously only in your own little fantasy world. The way your posts here read indicates that you lack the basic intellect to run a business, much less function effectively on a daily basis. That being said, you might want to stop with your idiotic stories and save yourself further embarrassment.

          14. bobnstuff says:

            I have noticed one thing, you have yet to say why DeVos should be Sec. of Education. Tell me why a person who has never been a educator, never been on a school board, never had any dealings with the public school system and doesn’t even have an educational back ground in education should be given this job. Oh and I spent 45 years running businesses. My guess is you are sitting in your mothers basement having been thrown out buy you spouse, again.

          15. ABO says:

            You couldn’t run a business if your life depended on it. You expect others to believe that you have run businesses for 45 years when they have been reading the utterly brainless, idiotic drivel you have posted here??? I’d be far more inclined to believe that you need to be closely supervised 24/7 to keep you from hurting yourself. Is your orderly right there with you, Moron? As far as why DeVos should be Sec. of education, she is widely respected as a very effective leader of the school reform movement and is only disrespected by the liberal obstructionist clowns that populate the democrat side of the U.S. Senate these days . If you had a brain and hence the ability to engage in normal, critical thought you would see that. But things being as they are you are clearly incapable of doing the research and learning the truth you simply buy the liberal rhetoric because it’s easier than actually thinking for yourself.

          16. bobnstuff says:

            Respected buy Who? No one with any knowledge of school reform has any use for her. She has destroyed Michigan’s school systems and now she will try to do the same for the country. The private school people don’t respect her, the charter school people came out against her. Only the brain dead and those that can make money off her support her and even they have misgivings because her lack of experience. The only reason she got the job was MONEY. As far as my business back ground I don’t really care what you say. I know you are clueless in that area, just as you are in most. I have nothing to prove to you. By the way you should see if there is a window in that basement you live in so you can open it and let the fumes out.

          17. ABO says:

            “Respected buy Who?” The word is by idiot, not buy. Buy means to purchase. You really are illiterate and a typical product of the failed public education system. You continue to post your idiotic attacks but offer absolutely nothing to back up a word of it. Then you start in with your moronic attacks on me. You say I’m clueless in the area of business, but claim that you’ve run several businesses over the last 45 years but you don’t know the difference between ‘buy’ and ‘by’ Every time you post you prove beyond any reasonable doubt that you are a pathetic idiot that couldn’t run a lemonade stand at a profit but we’re supposed to believe that you’re an expert in the field of education. Obviously when HRC told Dick Morris in ’05 ” Democrat voters are just plain stupid. they are very easy to manipulate due to their stupidity”, she must have been talking about you, Dimwit.

          18. bobnstuff says:

            You do know about secretaries don’t you. I had a very good one for years. I didn’t even learn to type until I retired. Also I have found that no one really cared if I could spell anything more then my name on checks. There are advantages to being the boss. In case you have noticed Trump spell just about as well as I do.

          19. ABO says:

            Maybe but he’s not a moron like you are.

          20. bobnstuff says:

            Some how I think his reason for bad communication is his ego and mine is the fact that I don’t have people to check my spelling. If I misspell something I get a hard time from a few people, when he misspells something it makes the headlines. So if he wasn’t a moron with a super size ego he would have someone check his spelling.

          21. ABO says:

            I see that you are well versed in the questionable talent for convoluted logic and by the way, you claim that you have no one to check your spelling after claiming your great success as a business owner and talk of your great secretary. At any rate are you the only person out there with no spell check function? Or are you just too lazy to look for the little red squiggly lines and make the change??? Or are you just perfectly comfortable with your inability to perform simple tasks properly?

          22. bobnstuff says:

            Everything I type is spell checked. I guess Trump doesn’t use it though. My spelling doesn’t change the fact that our new Sec. of Ed bought the job, isn’t qualified, and will promote her for profit schools. She has zero respect in the world of education and has set a record for the least supported person ever to sit in the cabinet. Can you name any other member of the cabinet that has had street protester on the day the took the post?

          23. ABO says:

            Nor does your spelling change the fact that you make utterly baseless accusations that you invariably fail to back up with anything resembling actual facts. It also doesn’t change the fact that you are incapable of constructing a simple sentence properly.

          24. bobnstuff says:

            You still can’t come up with any good reason for her appointment I see, deflect as much as you like.

          25. ABO says:

            Apparently you can’t read any better than you spell or construct sentences, Dimwit.

          26. bobnstuff says:

            Deflect Deflect, all you do. Not once have you stated any reason why you believe she is the best pick for Sec of Ed. I’m done here, you loose. Unfortunately so does the country.

          27. ABO says:

            Ya, ya, ya. I see you’re getting paid per post you pathetic troll.

          28. ABO says:

            If everything you type is spell checked why are none of the errors corrected, Dimwit? Only one would have been passed by spell check.

          29. bobnstuff says:

            You know that by and buy both go through spellcheck. I’m sorry if you don’t understand that but I really don’t care. You seem to be trying to inflate your ego by attacking my spelling. How sad. I guess when you take an defensible stand you must retreat somewhere.

          30. ABO says:

            Go back and read my response from three hours ago you pathetic idiot. Or maybe you should get someone to read it to you. You should seriously consider a course in remedial reading comprehension.

          31. ABO says:

            The other dogs were more useless, that is why they are not voted out. Plus they bring in money for the party. Money rules but not for the Clintons.

          4. Rodney Steward says:

            I guess so, I know McCain and crowd don’t like Trump and will cause trouble at one point!

          5. Glenda Jordan says:

            Read an article earlier Rodney @ DML’s website regarding a report from Breitbart…$ from Soros “made its way to the coffers of top republicans” included is Ryan, McCain, Rubio, Kasich, & Graham (Ryan receiving the most). Detailed info found @ OpenSecrets.org

          6. Rodney Steward says:

            Bingo, that was good, and these will be the ones that will hurt Trump when they can! Some will play along for a while, but at one time they will turn! Some reason why Soros funds people on both sides, and I’d say it’s people that would work with him!! That was good! 🙂

          7. Glenda Jordan says:

            I was some surprised to learn he funds people on both sides…I thought they were just them “never trumpers” and have their own agenda. I knew..knew from the get go something ’bout that weasel ryan…told my mother, daughter just something ’bout his looks that I felt he couldn’t be trusted…beady eyed sneak…snake,

          8. Rodney Steward says:

            The reason why I call it the party of one, their clubs (REP., & DEM.) are almost the same, $$$$ is their first love but they have a little different rules in their clubs!

          9. The Redhawk says:

            THis shall NEVER be REPORTED by the PRESSTITUTES of MSM…Betcha!

          10. Glenda Jordan says:

            Ha! Imagine if it were Redhawk….in one sense we would think lies from the msm and yet we know anything possible w/ these lower life forms of the swamp.

          11. The Redhawk says:

            Yes Imagine their SHOCK at getting better ratings in credibility and Confidence in real news ratings!

          12. Glenda Jordan says:

            Key words “real news” so I would say we would be in shock lol

          13. The Redhawk says:

            In the PRESSTITUTES case when it comes to ‘REAL” Verify before you can TRUST!

        2. maxx says:

          Hard to beat Rinos that are kept in office with crossover democrat votes. McCain was behind by 10 points 2 weeks before the election. That situation has happened several times now.

        3. The Redhawk says:

          bulls eye

      2. Billy says:

        It has been revealed that McCain and Graham get funding from George Soros so maybe they are laying low until that revelation blows over.

        1. Jim says:

          You are right, I have read that several times of how much they get from him to be on his side, people in general do not know any thing about this and how sad

      3. Pete Bundy says:

        I think they are more worried about illegals coming in instead of kids getting a good education which works out well for now but they need to be voted out along with the other RINO’s. We have less than two years to right the ship of state and if she is not righted we may well lose her. Why the delay in the House to get rid of Obamacare? Why the delay on tax reform? I sure hope it is not business as usual as we can’t survive.

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          The Dem. are keeping his picks tied up to prevent him from doing anything! Sessions has to get in to get much done! Just like this BS the DEms and that judge blocked the muslim thing, and this judge was all out for the BLM if that tells you anything! All this is to stall everything Trump is doing!

      4. The Redhawk says:

        yEAH What happened to the RINO TWINS?

  • bambi69 says:

    What an idiot!!! Hope all you senators’ and representatives’ have grandchildren who are attending or shortly will be attending school — they will have the idiot DeVos leading their classes, and she knows absolutely nothing about education (neither do you). At least they will be protected from BEARS!!!

    1. Pete Bundy says:

      You do understand that we rank 25th in the world as far as reading, math and science. So exactly how have the past education secretaries worked out for us?

      1. bambi69 says:

        Past education secretaries have nothing to do with DeVos’ appointment. What I said was that SHE WAS NOT QUALIFIED FOR THIS POST!!!!

        1. maxx says:

          What makes you so qualified to say she is not? Sounds like a statement you got from your dumocRat handler.

          1. bambi69 says:

            The statement I made came from absolutely NO ONE but me. I have no “handler” Democrat or otherwise. Don’t need one, never have. I see, however, that you have been well indoctrinated into everything Republican and are now greedily sipping (actually gulping) their koolaid. Your true colors are showing, even though you can’t see anything else for the curtain that has been pulled over your eyes and the fog that has been inserted into your brain,

          2. maxx says:

            Sadly for you the curtain that was pulled over all of America for the past 8 years has finally been lifted. When America rightfully pays homage to hard work instead of government welfare and the economy is allowed to recover you socialists should be shown the door.

          3. bobnstuff says:

            A back ground in education, a formal education in the field, first hand experience with public school system. Anything to do with public education would be nice. Her efforts in Michigan has just about destroyed there system. Test scores have dropped.

        2. Pete Bundy says:

          Actually she was. More so than the ones before her. Good heavens we have high school “graduates” who can’t read a tape measure. All compliments of the public school system. And FYI I had to give classes in the evening while on the road woking in industrial sites to educate them so they would not mess up out supplies to rebuild equipment.

    2. Ramon1710 . says:

      DeVos is to undergo mass cloning?

        1. Ramon1710 . says:

          You said she was going to be leading the classes of everyone attending school.

          1. bambi69 says:

            As secretary of education that is exactly what she will be doing. That is her job–over-seeing all. You need to learn how to critically read something and correctly interpret what is said before you make a stupid comment about cloning!!!

          2. Ramon1710 . says:

            Bimbo69, if you want stupid, reference your first post.

          3. Glenda Jordan says:

            I got Ramon’s humor…apparently you just have none. O and btw @ this very moment my oldest gdaughter and two friends (3rd/4th graders) are jumping w/ joy as this may be the end of common core.

          4. Ghost Forever says:

            You are the typical Libturd! You feel you must correct everyone, when actually no one cares about your opinion…at all.

    3. Stephen Howe says:

      DeVos will expel troublemakers. That will benefit all children trying to learn.

      1. bambi69 says:

        OKAY, I guess that expelling someone instead of attempting to correct bad behavior is okay with you but I want my grandchildren and great grandchildren taught properly and because they disagree with someone (be that someone teacher or classmate) they should have the right to express their disagreement without fear of being kicked out of school.

        1. Stephen Howe says:

          The only way to correct this bad behavior would allow their famblies to sue.

          To negroes, good manners & comportment is “acting white.” Stop being obtuse. You know this is true, and will never change.

        2. Webb says:

          Taught properly…is that the Liberal education?

        3. Gary Border says:

          bambi69 –

          It’s the old 80/20 rule … 80% of the (bad) outcomes can be attributed to 20% percent (maybe much less) of the students. The purpose of K-12 is education in the basics … Science, Math and Engineering. The study of English is also important, so we can communicate effectively. History can be important … but only if we elect to learn from it.

          Most “disagreements” should be expressed by joining the Debate Club. Disrupting the education of others is unacceptable. As I understand it, there are many students who deserve to be expelled.

          Remember … “one bad apple will spoil the bunch.”

    4. Ghost Forever says:

      If you have been supporting the democrats throughout these past 8 years you really shouldn’t be calling someone else idiots.

      1. bambi69 says:

        Who said I supported dems?? I at least have the education to properly make statements with correct structure, etc.

    5. Dante Marciani says:

      We are already in the 24-26 position when compared to the rest of the world in every topic. The only countries that we are ahead are mostly underdeveloped ones. Thus, I doubt that we can go lower than we have gone during the past 8 years.

    6. Gary Border says:

      bambi69 –

      So now you’re a psychiatrist (“idiot”). Thomas Edison said, “The three great essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are, first, hard work; second, stick-to-itiveness; third, common sense.”

      Betsy DeVos will make a fine Secretary of Education.

    7. Webb says:

      Do you belong to The Teachers Union…

      1. bambi69 says:

        I’m wondering where in the heck you got that silly-ass idea?

        1. Webb says:

          Teachers Unions are a joke…
          They are committed to Paychecks and Retirement Payments…
          Not Education of Children!!

          From your Post…

        2. ABO says:

          I notice that you chose to divert rather than answer the question. Afraid to show where your loyalties are?

          1. bambi69 says:

            NO — I did not divert, answered the question quite to the point — WEBB asked if I belonged to The Teachers Union — I answered by stating it was “that silly-ass idea” — are you unable to interpret that succinct statement??

          2. ABO says:

            You need to get a look at the real world sometime. If that’s your idea of answering a simple politely stated question then you need to get yourself a real education, something beyond that which qualifies as such in your little fantasy world.

    8. CrustyOldGeezer says:

      Am I supposed to accept your opinion?

      Or am I allowed to accept FACTS about Mrs, DeVos?

      Since your ‘comment’ is simply ‘oft repeated hyperbole’ with nothing of value to substantiate it, yer kinda sucking hind teat on this one.

  • ClarenceDeBarrows says:

    Finally the President AND the Vice President working in unison to defeat liberal-progressive, agenda driven, politicians doing their best to frustrate the smooth working of our Constitutional Republic in any way they can. Great job Vice President Pence. We’re proud of you!

  • Tennis4Me says:

    What’s worse is that Maine-Collins and Alaska-Murkowski would not vote for her!!!! I certainly hope their constituents bail on the on their next election!!! Only Democrap kids are good enough to be able to choose their schools!
    Disgraceful!!!!
