The Senate Betrayed the People

On Tuesday, the Senate confirmed Betsy DeVos for secretary of education. She has no qualifications for the job and her plan is to gut the public school system. No one thought that she was qualified for the job. The public outcry was huge and yet only two Republicans were brave enough to stand with the people and vote against her.

Yesterday, the Senate confirmed Jeff Sessions for attorney general. He was deemed too racist for the Reagan administration to appoint as a judge. The Senate even went so far as to silence Elizabeth Warren when she attempted to quote Coretta Scott King’s letter about Jeff Sessions due to its content calling him racist. Let’s be clear, he is clearly racist. He has worked to prevent and the undermine the voting rights of People of Color. He is also fiercely anti-LGBTQ, anti-immigration, and against the legalization of marijuana. He is against many things that most of the country is for.

This just continues the trend of the Trump/Bannon choices to continuously ram immensely unpopular policies on us. Our only hope is to get Congress on our side. They have been continuously betraying us, going along with the Nazis currently in power. Our Congresspeople need to feel our wrath. We must make them listen. They must understand that they must work for us or we are coming for them.
