Politico reports that Betsy DeVos is the single most unpopular Cabinet choice made by Trump, as judged by the numbers of calls and emails coming to senators.


It appears that all the Democratic members of the Senate HELP committee will vote against her, but so far every Republican is falling into line, despite her abysmal performance at her sole hearing. DeVos showed the public that she was uninformed, knew nothing about federal law, thought that federal protection for students with disabilities was optional (it is not), and displayed complete ignorance about higher education.


Despite all that, the hundreds of millions she has donated to Republicans may be enough to get her confirmed.


In an era when morality and ethics have evaporated, this makes sense. It compromises the credibility of everyone who votes for her and shows how little they care for the education of our children.
