It is sad day in American politics that we confirm a person who has no qualifications, no understanding of relevant policy and law, who plagiarized responses to a committee questionnaire, and who performed horribly in answering committee questions. There is no excuse for confirming Betsy DeVos for Education Secretary. There is no reason to not say, "I'm sorry, this is an unqualified candidate for the position. Please, recommend someone more fitting." It is not shameful to ask for the right and qualified choice. What is shameful, however, is confirming Ms DeVos because of funding from her family or blindly adhering to the wishes of the current Administration. Pennsylvanians do not benefit from her confirmation. Americans do not benefit from her confirmation. We should be ashamed that this was allowed to occur.
