Trump nominated Betsy DeVos, the wife of Amway heir Dick DeVos, for Secretary of Education. She has a bachelor’s degree in business administration and political science. She has never taught in school, did not attend any public school or college, and has strong family ties to Christian causes and possibly creationism. Her brother is Erik Prince, the founder of the mercenary company Blackwater, which is now defunct.
Along with Trump, we now have two members of the billionaire class representing us in our government. Do the people of this country really believe that billionaires, just because they are rich, will do what is best the for the middle class? I’d like to ask Bernie Sanders what he thinks about that.
I don’t believe that someone who has never taught a child in school, who has never attended a public school, should now suddenly be qualified to make decisions that affect a hundred million young people in our country.
With Trump, we’re now building an entirely new class of government. In the past, billionaires got to pull the strings by buying politicians. Now the billionaires are infiltrating our government directly. They are running it now.
It’s called “plutocracy.”
And we all sit by and think this is a good thing?
