Thank you, Felton, for that introduction, and thank you, Michael Casserly, for your leadership of the Council, and all of you for the work you do on behalf of kids.

Thank you, Chairman Walker for that introduction, and my sincere thanks to you and to Sen. Scott for convening this important gathering.
I know you're both champions of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities [HBCUs] you represent, from North Carolina A&T State University to South Carolina's Claflin University.

Hello! Thank you for that warm welcome. I always love the energy and enthusiasm CPAC brings together every year.
I’m Betsy DeVos. You may have heard some of the “wonderful” things the mainstream media has called me lately. I, however, pride myself on being called a mother, a grandmother, a life partner, and perhaps the first person to tell Bernie Sanders to his face that there’s no such thing as a free lunch.

Thank you for gathering, or for taking a few minutes to tune in from your offices around the Department.
And thank you for your welcome. I have been eager to get here and meet everyone!
