Posts Tagged ‘Betsy DeVos’

Rex Tillerson – Secretary of State – Exxon CEO with deep ties to Russia and no diplomatic experience, who thinks confirmation hearings and questions from lowly senators are beneath him.

Betsy DeVos – Secretary of Education – Thinks public school teachers are overpaid, never taught, never went to public school, does not believe in public education.

Rick Perry – Energy Secretary – Misunderstood what the job meant. Is on record wanting to abolish the department he now wants to head up.

Scott Pruitt – E.P.A. Administrator – Has sued the E.P.A. many times as Attorney General of Oklahoma. Has worked for the interests of oil companies fighting the climate change lobby.

Is Trump trying to dismantle the United States government as we know it? Are we handing our welfare and well-being to the oil companies to control? Are we out of our minds?

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?
