What happened to ‘the future is female’? MAJOR lib meltdown when Pence casts final vote for DeVos

Betsy DeVos has been confirmed as the next Secretary of the Department of Education after Vice President Mike Pence cast a historic vote to break the divided Senate.

The 51-50 vote came after an all night debate by Democrats seeking to derail the nomination of the school choice advocate who has faced fierce opposition during confirmation hearings.

Republican Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine were the only GOP votes against DeVos.

Democratic senators took shifts arguing against DeVos as they protested inside and outside the Capitol overnight and right into Tuesday morning’s vote.

With the hashtag #NoOnDeVos, critics pulled all the stops in an effort to lure Republicans to vote against President Donald Trump’s pick.

But the divisive nomination ended with the confirmation of the 59-year-old Michigan businesswoman and philanthropist.

Naturally, the floodgates of outrage were opened with the breaking news.

Of course, for conservatives with a determination to see real change in a bloated federal agency that is controlled by teachers unions, the future with DeVos at the helm is pretty bright.

It seems Hillary Clinton may be right and “the future is female.
