Billionaire Buys Nomination for Education Secretary Under President-elect 40%
This woman is a know-nothing dilettante billionaire who got the nomination for Education Secretary because she gave millions and millions of dollars to President-elect 40%'s campaign. She couldn't answer the most basic questions on education. Senator Warren made a fool of Betsy DeVos:
I know absolutely NOTHING about public education!
Charlie Pierce: "Simply put, Betsy DeVos has been nominated to be Secretary of Education because she married into the Amway money and spread it around to enough Republican politicians to get them elected so that they would carry out DeVos family enterprise of turning public education over to private profiteers and turning the political commons into a theocratic yard sale open to the highest bidder. She and her family contributed substantial sums to 10 of the 12 Republicans who were sitting on the committee that was vetting her Tuesday night.
It was low, insulting burlesque and a revolting dumbshow of the arrogance of monied ignorance. I think we're all going to have to get used to that kind of thing."
