Shit’s about to get real.

For two years, Democrats watched with fury as Education Secretary Betsy DeVos sought to dismantle nearly every significant Obama administration education policy.

Now, they’re gearing up to fight back. Lots of them.

As many as five Democratic-led House committees next year could take on DeVos over a range of issues such as her rollback of regulations aimed at predatory for-profit colleges, the stalled processing of student loan forgiveness and a rewrite of campus sexual assault policies.

“Betsy DeVos has brought a special mix of incompetence and malevolence to Washington — and that’s rocket fuel for every committee in a new Congress that will finally provide oversight,” said Seth Frotman, who resigned as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s top student loan official earlier in protest of Trump administration policies likely to be examined by Democrats.

Even in a Republican-controlled Congress, DeVos had a strained relationship at times with some committees. Her main priorities, such as expanding school choice, were largely ignored as lawmakers hashed out government funding bills. Now she will have to answer to House Democrats wielding gavels, several of whom have long worked on education issues and have been among her most vocal critics.

DeVos is another of those who Trump chose to destroy the department that they were put in charge of, just like Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson, and Head of the EPA Scott Pruitt.

None of those folks were selected to improve those departments, they were selected to sabotage them from within.  

And the same is clearly true of DeVos. 

My prediction is that she will not be able to handle the increased scrutiny and will resign before things get too hot for her. 

The woman is a billionaire, so simply put she does not need this shit. 

And good luck to Trump in getting a replacement through the nomination process.

    Trump put all these these rich people in charge and said they were the smartest people he knew. I guess he meant because they inherited their wealth like him, and got away with a lot of dishonesty along the line. Nowadays, that would be seen as smart in the Trump world. Remember Obama? Such an intelligent man he was. And we were all aspiring to be like him. Cool, calm, collected, and intelligent. Instead we get sacked with dumb and dumber, and it gets so bad sometimes you feel like you’re in that movie idioacracy. Remember that movie where everyone was butt dumb?

    Oh, and over in Huff Post they are gassing women and children. What a damnable country we have become. I did not want to be a Russian. But it’s happening as Trump makes us all complicit with his evil plans. I wish him to hell.

    She was a billionaire before she started this job, so she didn’t need it then either. She did it because she had a reason to.
    A billionaire who probably has paid and bought for, and has the goods on most politicians, is not likely afraid to sit for hearings.

    If she were to leave, you think Trump is going to have a hard time getting a cabinet position appointed thru a Republican controlled Senate? Not bloody likely.

    Betsy is said to never clean her dildos. They just keep getting nastier and nastier.

    Jesus sees this, Betsy. He knows your dildos are ditty, Betsy. Filthy.
