Maybe it wasn’t Pay-for-Play after all but instead Pay-for-the-Chance-to-Push-the-Detonator-Button on the department she just bought. Like a real estate tycoon who buys a building only to rig it with explosives and watch it implode.
On the same day the Senate confirmed President Trump’s secretary of Education pick by a historically narrow margin, a House Republican introduced legislation to abolish the entire department Betsy DeVos will lead.
Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie’s bill is only a page long, after merely stating the Department of Education would terminate on Dec. 31, 2018.
Massie believes that policymakers at the state and local levels should be responsible for education policy, instead of a federal agency that’s been in place since 1980.
As for what Betsy thinks of her new toy and how it relates to her true passion, tearing down the walls between Church and State get a load of this:
Asked whether Christian schools should continue to rely on giving—rather than pushing for taxpayer money through vouchers—Betsy DeVos replied, “There are not enough philanthropic dollars in America to fund what is currently the need in education…Our desire is to confront the culture in ways that will continue to advance God’s kingdom.”
Added Dick DeVos: “As we look at many communities in our country, the church has been displaced by the public school as the center for activity…[I]t is certainly our hope that more and more churches will get more and more active and engaged in education.”
Just when you thought things couldn’t decent any further into the pits of hell….
