CALL NOW: Tell the Senate to oppose Betsy DeVos
Call Senate Republicans and tell them to reject Betsy DeVos' nomination -- it only takes two minutes to have a big impact:
Vice President Biden has a lot of great sayings, but one of my favorites is something that I think gets to the core of what we believe as Democrats: that everyone deserves a fair shot and a fair shake. Nowhere is that more true than when it comes to education.
Last night, the Senate began the confirmation hearings for Trump's pick to lead the Department of Education, extreme right-wing billionaire Betsy DeVos. The hearings revealed that Betsy DeVos is dangerously and embarrassingly unqualified to lead the Department of Education. And we're asking you to call your senators and tell them why DeVos would be the wrong choice to be put in charge of our kids' futures.
Before the election, a national poll showed that if grade school students could vote, they would have voted overwhelmingly against Donald Trump and his agenda. These are the same students whose futures will be impacted under Betsy DeVos' Department of Education. Do them a favor and take two minutes to make a call to your senator today:
Thanks for stepping up,
Deputy Communications Director
Democratic National Committee
