Call Senator Young and tell him to vote NO on Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education! DeVos’s committe vote is on WEDNESDAY and Senator Young will have a chance to vote against her then!
Betsy DeVos is unqualified for the cabinet position she has been nominated for, and is an enemy of the department she plans to oversee. Here are the many talking points to use while you talk to Young’s office:1) Betsy DeVos has a religious agenda. She wants to use charter and private schools to “advance God’s kingdom” in the United States: http://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/betsy-devos-education-trump-religion-232150
2)She is an outright supporter of school vouchers that would divert incredibly precious money from public schools to private and for-profit charter schools. Her efforts in Michigan have led to some of the largest for-profit charters in the nation, while Michigan’s reading and math scores continue to fall.
3)She is already rife with conflicts of interest. She and her family have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Republicans, including many who are on the committee set to push her nomination on to the floor.
We need clear action on this immediately. Senator Young is on the US Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions. His vote helps decide whether DeVos gets a vote on the floor.
Call AND email and demand Todd Young vote AGAINST Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education!
