Minority Report

Betsy DeVos is going to be the next Secretary of Education.

GOP leadership gave permission to two senators who need to keep getting donations from teacher's unions to vote no. If no Democrats vote yes, this will result in a 50 50 tie with Vice President Pence casting the deciding vote.

There is essentially nothing the minority party can do to stop this or any other Trump nomination because the Democrats short-sightedly eliminated the filibuster when they were the majority.

All you people who want to eliminate the Electoral College because you think a majority rule democracy is better that a Representative republic - how do you like it now?
