Betsy DeVos confirmed as Trump’s Secretary of Education

As expected, the vote was 50-50, triggering the remedy provided for in the Constitution, which is for the Vice President to break the tie.

  • “The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no Vote, unless they be equally divided.”

Sen Chuck Schumer (D-NY) played his role in the on-going Democrats in La-La Land farce by tweeting:

Today @VP Mike Pence did something no one else has ever done: cast the tie breaking vote on his own cabinet nominee. #RiggedCabinet   — Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) February 7, 2017

That’s definitely not ridiculous or anything.

  1. It’s not his cabinet. It’s President Trump’s.
  2. It’s not “rigged” to follow the procedures set out in the Constitution.
  3. It’s not “rigged” for the VP to vote for the person he wants.

Senator Schumer, you make me ashamed to be among your constituents.
