I have no doubt that Betsy DeVos sincerely cares about children, but it is clear that she lacks the experience and understanding to be an effective Secretary of Education. That individual holds the sacred job of ensuring that every child in America gets the resources and support they deserve regardless of their income, background, or educational needs. Mrs. DeVos has shown no evidence of her commitment to be the torch bearer for both excellence and equity. Her ideology and dogmatic approach communicates a lack of understanding and appreciation of the challenges we face and the depth of solutions they demand. Our young people deserve an Education Secretary who has the courage, competence, and commitment to orient our mighty education system to build opportunity for all. They cannot afford to wait four years for their chance at the American Dream.
Introduced a bill today with more than 30 senators to rescind President Donald J. Trump's' anti-climate Executive Order. By halting this order, we will keep current safeguards in place to combat climate change, protect American jobs, and preserve our path toward energy independence. #ActOnClimate #RescindClimateOrder Link
I’m voting against Betsy DeVos. I haven’t heard anything that gives me confidence that she can lead us in the right direction for our kids.
Today's attack in Charlottesville is not the result of “many sides”— it's an act of domestic terrorism. President Donald J. Trump should explicitly denounce white supremacy.
