Democrats Close To Stopping Trump’s Education Pick?


IT IS DO OR DIE TIME FOR
BETSY DEVOS WITH SENATE DEMOCRATS DOING WHAT LIMITED
THINGS THEY CAN DO TO STOP HER FROM BECOMING THE NEXT HEAD
OF THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION. MULTIPLE SENATE DEMOCRATS
INDICATED EARLY TODAY THAT THEY WOULD TAKE PART IN THE
LATE NIGHT SESSION TO VOICE THEIR OBJECTIONS TO PRESIDENT
TRUMPíS NOMINEE TO LEAD THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION. DEMOCRATS WILL HOLD THE FLOOR
FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS UNTIL THE FINAL VOTE WHICH IS SCHEDULED
FOR TOMORROW DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO PERSUADE JUST ONE MORE
REPUBLICAN TO JOIN US. THAT IS SENATOR PATTY MURRAY. THERE ARE OTHER DEMOCRATS WHO
SPOKEN ABOUT THIS. SPEECHES HAVE BEEN SCHEDULED
THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO WHATEVER
BERNIE SANDERS WINDS UP SAYING. I HAVEN’T SEEN ANY TWEETS FROM
HIM ABOUT THIS BUT I KNOW HE’S BEEN BUSY LATELY. WHAT THEY NEED TO DO IS GET THE
REPUBLICANS TO JOIN THE 48 DEMOCRATS THAT WE HAVE. RIGHT NOW THEYíRE 48 DEMOCRATS AND
THEY HAVE SUSAN COLLINS AND LISA MURKOWSKI JOINING
THEM WHICH GIVES THEM 50-50 WITH OTHER REPUBLICANS WHICH
MEANS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING BECAUSE MIKE PENCE COMES INTO
BREAK THE TIE. WE JUST NEED ONE MORE REPUBLICAN
AND THAT IS UNFORTUNATELY QUITE DIFFICULT. IT’S GOING TO BE DIFFICULT TO
GET BECAUSE REPUBLICANS SENATORS PAT TOOMEY JOHN HOY
EVENT OF NORTH DAKOTA DEAN HELLER OF NEVADA AND DEB FISHER
OF NEBRASKA EACH CONSIDERED POTENTIAL CANDIDATES TO FLIP
ON DEVOS ANNOUNCED LATE LAST WEEK THAT THEY WOULD
SUPPORT TRUMPíS NOMINEE. THAT IS INCREDIBLY SAD. THERE WERE A LOT OF CABINET PICS
I DISAGREED WITH AND BETSY DEVOS I THINK IS AN EXAMPLE OF
ONE OF THE WORST. YOU HAVE REX TELLERSON AND
STEVE MNUCHIN, HE IS FILLING THAT SWAMP WITH
CORPORATE INTERESTS AND THE SAME INDIVIDUALS THAT HE CLAIMED
THAT HE WASN’T GOING TO DO BUSINESS WITH ONCE HE GETS IN
OFFICE. MY ISSUE WITH BETSY DEVOS IS
THAT SHE WILL MESS WITH THE ONE THING THAT WE HAVE LEFT IN
THIS COUNTRY THAT SERVES AS AN ECONOMIC LADDER. THE GREAT EQUALIZER BEING
EDUCATION. THAT IS TRULY WHAT IT IS. WITHOUT EDUCATION, SO MANY
PEOPLE WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO GET TO THE PLACE THAT THEY ARE
IN THEIR LIFE. I WOULDN’T BE UP TO GET TO THE
PLACE I AM IN IN MY LIFE. I GREW UP IN A POOR
WORKING-CLASS FAMILY IN RESEDA CALIFORNIA. MY PARENTS WERE BOTH IMMIGRANTS
AND IT WASN’T UNTIL I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL THAT MY PARENTS
WERE FINALLY FINANCIALLY STABLE BECAUSE MY DAD WAS ABLE
TO PAY OFF SOME PROPERTIES THAT HE GETS RENT MONEY FROM
BUT BEFORE THAT, I REMEMBER KNOWING WHAT IT WAS LIKE TO BE
POOR. MY PARENTS COULDN’T AFFORD MEAT
FOR DINNER AND MY MOM WOULD TELL ME OVER AND OVER YOU HAVE THE
OPPORTUNITY TO BUILD A BETTER LIFE YOURSELF THROUGH EDUCATION. I WENT TO PUBLIC SCHOOLS, WENT TO COLLEGE, GOT MY MASTERS
DEGREE AND I WAS ABLE TO DO WHAT I WANTED TO DO WITH MY LIFE AND
I FEEL LIKE IT IS MY RESPONSIBILITY AND MY OBLIGATION
TO PROVIDE THE SAME OPPORTUNITIES FOR OTHER KIDS WHO
MIGHT BE IN DISADVANTAGED NEIGHBORHOODS OR DISADVANTAGED
HOUSEHOLDS AND TO THINK THAT SOMEONE LIKE BETSY DEVOS WHO
LITERALLY HAS NO EXPERIENCE IN EDUCATION WHATSOEVER, HAS NO
EXPERIENCE ON A PUBLIC SCHOOL CAMPUS OR CRAFTING CURRICULUM,
DOES THINK THAT SHE WOULD HAVE THE ABILITY TO MOVE THE
COUNTRY TOWARD PRIVATIZING THESE SCHOOLS SCARES THE HELL
ENEMY AND IF YOU WANT A CASE STUDY OF HOW DISASTER SHE
WOULD BE, TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT SHE DID WITH THE CHARTER
SCHOOLS IN MICHIGAN. TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN
YOU TAKE MONEY OUT OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND DEFUND THEM SO THEY
FAIL WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY FUNNELING THAT MONEY, TAXPAYER
MONEY INTO PRIVATE INSTITUTIONS THAT DON’T HAVE TO
ABIDE BY CERTAIN STANDARDS. BY THE WAY, DEMOCRATS ARE
FIGHTING THIS TOOTH AND NAIL AND I RESPECT HIM FOR THAT,
BUT THIS HAS BEEN A LONG TIME IN THE MAKING AND WHAT I
MEAN BY THAT IS PRIOR TO BETSY DEVOS, PRIOR TO US EVEN
KNOWING WHO SHE WAS YOU HAD VARIOUS STATES THAT WERE
TAKING TAXPAYER MONEY OUT OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND PUTTING IT
INTO PRIVATE INSTITUTIONS THAT WERE VERY CLEARLY RELIGIOUS
INSTITUTIONS. WHY IS TAXPAYER MONEY SUPPORTING
RELIGIONS? WHY IS A HAPPENING? IF I WERE A DEMOCRAT IN
CONGRESS, I WOULD LOOK AT THIS AND SAY HEY, YOU KNOW WHAT? PUBLIC MONEY IS NOT SUPPOSED TO
GO TOWARD SUPPORTING ANY PARTICULAR RELIGION AND THESE
ARE RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS THAT TRY TO APPEAR TO BE SCHOOLS
BUT THE REALITY IS THEY ARE PUSHING WHATEVER RELIGIOUS
AGENDA. I WOULD FIGHT BACK. I WOULD’VE STARTED A LONG TIME
AGO SO RIGHT NOW, IT IS TOO LITTLE TOO LATE AND I AM REALLY
CONCERNED WITH WHAT DIRECTION THIS COUNTRY IS GOING TO GO AND
WHEN IT COMES TO HONESTLY WHAT I CONSIDER THE MOST IMPORTANT
OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE. FROM HER HEARINGS, WE KNOW
THAT IF SHE GETS TO HEAD UP OR SCHOOLS, OUR KIDS WILL BE
LESS WELL-EQUIPPED TO ENTER COLLEGE AND THE WORKFORCE BUT
BETTER EQUIPPED TO FEND OFF BEARS AT THE NOT EVEN BETTER BECAUSE
HOMEGIRL DOESN’T KNOW THE APPROPRIATE WAY TO END UP IN A
STUDY DON’T SHOOT THEM, THERE ARE OTHER WAYS OF DOING IT
THAT ARE MORE EFFECTIVE. BEAR SPRAY. WE ALREADY HAD THIS
CONVERSATION. IT’S CRAZY. WE DON’T HAVE AN ISSUE OR
PREVALENCE OF BEARS ENTERING SCHOOL CAMPUSES. OKAY? ANYWAY, YES, THEY ARE DOING
WHAT THEY CAN DO WE WANT TO GIVE THEM CREDIT THAT WE ATTACK
TO THE DEMOCRATIC SENATORS WHO SPOKE OUT HARSHLY AGAINST
THESE NOMINEES IN OTHER AREAS, SESSIONS WAS UNIVERSALLY
OPPOSED TO BELIEVE BUT SOME OF THE OTHERS AND BEN CARSON AND
THEN THEY VOTED FOR HIM ANYWAY. WE CRITICIZE THEM FOR THAT, WE
HAVE TO GIVE THEM CREDIT FOR DOING WHAT THEY CAN IN THE
SENATE WITH DEVOS THEY TRIED TO STOP HER COMMITTEE
LEVEL VOTE FROM HAPPENING AND THEY GOT THE RULES CHANGED
ON THEM AND NOW IT IS GONE TO THE FULL SENATE AND THEY’RE
DOING WHAT THEY CAN. BUT WHAT THEY CAN DO A 48
IS NOT MUCH THEY COULD THEORETICALLY FILIBUSTER BUT I
WOULDN’T PUT IT PAST THE REPUBLICANS TO TRY TO CHANGE
THOSE RULES AS WELL. THIS IS JUST A LITTLE REMINDER
THAT ELECTIONS MATTER. THEY HAVE CONSEQUENCES, LOSING
SUCKS, AND THIS IS WHY YOU DON’T LOSE ELECTIONS IN HAND THE
COUNTRY OVER TO A FASCIST.

  2. And DeVos is now the Secretary of Education, you LOST again libs! Now we can shred the socialist ran department of education and PRIVATIZE it and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

  3. close – but not enough! Haven't we had enough of liberals failing our kids? Have at it Mrs. Devos. I wish you all the best!

  4. Inner city public schools are a joke.   22-23 year old high school students,   zero interest in half of them for anything but to be a distraction.   Many are their because it is the only place they can eat,   parents are such loser they wont feed their children.     Just a state institute to disrupt before they start prison.   Born to the State,  live by the State,  Die by the State.   A lifetime of State control.

  5. School is the one place that all are truly equal (not really) and one's ability and commitment are the only thing that matter.
    Now school is going to be pay to play, just like devo's ability to pay to play in this very appointment.

  6. The vast majority of #Charterschools are not religious schools. In fact here in my city we've got science academies that are the best science schools in the state starting at KINDERGARTEN. I do have two issues with Charter schools. #1. The lottery to get in them is stupid long. The science academe I'd be sending my schools to can only accept about 15% of the applications they get. #2. The school I want to send my kids to is an hour through traffic to get to. We need more charter schools. We need school choice.

  7. This comment section is full of idiots that think they know everything about politics. The only thing you need to know is everyone is corrupt and power hungry.

  8. Here, take a handful of these and call your doctor in the morning.

    LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

  9. So let me get this straight: Ana claims to have been raised in a "poor working class family" while describing how her father was finally able to pay off his rental propert*ies* in Raseda California. Sure, Ana. Your family must have been dirt poor to own multiple rental properties in Raseda California where the median home price is currently 475k. By the way, Ana, who paid for your masters degree education?

  10. Young Turks with yet another correct prediction. Man these guys are always spot on they really are in touch with the average Americans.

  11. the only reason devos scares you freaks is because shes going to stop all this commie weirdo teaching is going to stop.

  12. 1 excellent teacher in the classroom trumps 10,000 administrators. cut the waste at local, state and federal level. pay teachers a fair wage and eliminate bureaucracy and administrative positions. if that is the result of the next 4-8 years, great.

  13. When the Democrats take over the Senate, every single Republican that voted to confirm DeVos after taking campaign funds from her needs to be brought up on bribery charges.

  14. 2:15 "poor working class family" "financially stable after able to pay off properties that they get rent money from, so they are land owners and land lords. "poor working class, land lord" Pick one. Dumbest thing i heard all week. This right here folks again shows how completely out of touch neo liberals are, and why they are completely clueless when it comes to the class struggle of the poor, the actual poor.. Also explains why liberals put a happy face on capitalism and exploitation, while trying to act like they care or really understand.

  15. If public schools are so great, why u worry about students gonna have equal funding and choose schools by themselves? They still gonna attend public schools in such case, right? How many democratic officials and major donors sent their children to public schools?

  16. I want to makes this CLEAR!!!! When Ana says "Religous" she MEANS Christian/Biblical schools. Jewish,Muslim,Hindu,Buddist,etc….Schooling r DISCRIMINATED by U.S. Govt.

  17. Nope – she's in and we can finally have a choice – rather than the liberal, radicalized education where our kids aren't even learning to spell anymore. Math and Science are tanking – give her a chance! The status quo libs haven't performed…

  18. Hey, you….yes that woman with your hair tied back so tightly that even your 2 brain cells are oxygen-starved. You are soooo scared of what the Vos may inflict onto education, no?
    So tell me, nitwit, how have the kids of poor households been performing thus far?
    Take your pick:
    1) Disastrously ba?
    2) Abysmally poorly?

  19. Hopefully, DeVos will get rid of Common Core and Trim the Federal Department of Education's Budget from 70 Billion Dollars to Zero. Give this money back to the states!

  20. Don't hide in the shadows,those love Donald Trump. Take a stand and Protest impeachment . we want to keep him in the white house!!!

  21. Nope and legislation is going through that every parent and child has the right to the school of their choice.
