    Glad to see them exposed and that things didn't go their way.

    Senator Collins is a RINO so it does not surprise me she'd vote this way.She also had said she would not vote for Trump. I'll remember this if she decides to run for governor of our state.

    Collins is a closet Dem, so that isn't a surprise. Glad DeVos was finally confirmed. It will be fun watching the teachers unions get put in their place now.

    From the little research I did you do not have to be a liberal to oppose Devos. She was the least qualified of Trumps picks.

    I don't know her management skills, but I know you don't necessarily have to be an educator to be a good manager. All it takes is a good manager who can hire good people that do know the business to run a cabinet level department. She may turn out to be good or bad, but that will depend on how good a manager she is.

    It's the department of education. It shouldn't even exist. A chimpanzee would be fine.

    Lobbyists should be as restricted as pharmaceutical reps are. Not so much as a 3¢ pen or a 1/2¢ pad of sticky notes, no renumeration whatsoever.

    I remember when the University of Washington Hospital changed their policy.
    NO freebies from any vendor.
    I couldn't find an ink pen anywhere.

    Then how would the demonrats indoctrinate?

    I don't know that I would get rid of it entirely but it definitely needs to be scaled WAY back.
