We're here tonight because there's a real chance that history is about to be made. We're going to stay here until it happens. #NoBillNoBreak
Health care isn't a privilege. It's a right. The fact that #TrumpCare doesn't recognize that is just the start of the many problems with it.
The Confirmation Hearing of Betsy DeVos as our next Secretary of Education intensified my concerns regarding her nomination. Her answers to questions reinforced that she would carry to the federal level the ideological approach that led her in Michigan to fight against higher standards and accountability for charter schools and divert funds from public to private schools. As someone who has worked, beginning in the Michigan State Senate, to make sure there is equal opportunity for students needing special education services, it is disturbing to hear her unawareness of federal law that goes back to the Nixon Administration and saying she would leave it entirely to the states. Her record suggests division, not universal progress for our schools. I therefore urge the Senate to reject her nomination.
I look forward to voting against this senseless measure. twitter.com/nytimes/status…
