Seriously, B-A-N-A-N-A-S.

As you may know, the United States Senate was in full swing last week with confirmation hearings for President Trump’s cabinet picks. And just in case you haven’t heard yet, his picks are BANANAS. Seriously, B-A-N-A-N-A-S.
We want you to know who the top 3 most ridiculous picks are for young Oregonians.

JEFF SESSIONS

US Attorney General

BETSY DeVOS

Secretary of Education

SCOTT PRUITT

Head of Environmental Protection Agency

WHY IS SESSIONS

B-A-N-A-N-A-S?

In 1986, Coretta Scott King warned us about Jeff Sessions. He thinks that civil rights should be thrown to the wind opposing marriage equality and Roe v Wade. He also supports increased surveillance, voting for the wiretaps provision of the Patriot Act.

He opposes a legal pathway for citizenship for people immigrating into the US and voted against a ban on cruel and inhuman punishment for prisoners.

Last but not least, he opposes medical marijuana, once saying “good people don’t smoke marijuana.”

WHY IS DeVOS 

B-A-N-A-N-A-S?

She’s not an expert in curriculum, education or pedagogy. Her qualification for serving in education’s highest seat is serving as a lobbyist for the school choice movement in Michigan. This means she supports voucher & tax credit programs, which would ultimately move public tax dollars away from public classrooms and into private schools.

Further, she doesn’t believe in separation of church and the public school classroom– going as far as to say public schools should “advance God’s kingdom.”

Oh also, she said we should have guns in public schools to protect students from grizzlies. Here’s a link… we can’t make this stuff up.

WHY IS PRUITT 

B-A-N-A-N-A-S?

He doesn’t think climate change is real saying “Scientists continue to disagree about the degree and extent of global warming and its connection to the actions of mankind.” #NoScottTheyDont

He’s continuously taken the side of industry over the well-being of people during his tenure as Oklahoma’s Attorney General. The Head of the Department of Environmental Quality described Pruitt as having “advocated and stood up for the profits of business . . . at the expense of people who have to drink the water or breathe the air.”

 

As the confirmation process continues, our Senators need to hear from you. They have the power to stop these terrible picks. If you do one thing today, make sure you call our US senators and urge them to vote oppose these nominations.
