Just called offices of Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski and, as a Pennsylvanian,

thanked them for their courage in voting against DeVos. I actually got through to real people. I also called Toomey's office and expressed my deep disappointment in his voting for her.

1. Courage?

 

I suspect they were given permission to vote this way.

4. They cannot come to the phone, a 3rd of their day is spent begging for money from rich donors.

 

Another chunk is spending time with lobbyists and special interest groups, a small amount of time in Congress, then right back to begging for money. A sliver for you and I, if they get a chance.

Hell of a way to spend the day.

8. Murkowski and Collins voted to give DeVos a full

Senate vote at a time when they could have killed the nomination completely. They were just posturing in the full Senate vote. You should have called all three to explain that you will do whatever you can to defeat them when they run for reelection.
