Democrats are speaking for 24 hours in last push against Betsy DeVos


February 7, 2017

“Now is the time to put country before party,” said Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), urging GOP senators to join Democrats in opposing DeVos, a Michigan billionaire and major Republican donor who has spent decades advocating the use of public funds to help parents pay tuition at private and religious schools.
