    Betsy DeVos
    My mother used to always say, “stop passing your opinion when you are on the outside looking in.” Well, I have to differ with that axiom. I personally feel that if you are on the outside looking in, you get a clearer view of the entire room. Whereas, if you, DeVos, are on the inside, you only see what’s in front of you. I understand that you were born on a silver platter but, most of us have not and have to struggle for everything we have. Taking money from poor schools and giving it to schools that are well-to-do has been a practice since equal rights began and it has me thinking that you are one of those individuals that believe the poor should stay poor and allow the rich to get richer. I sincerely hope that I am wrong because that would make you a deplorable person. How can you support ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) pr NCLB (No Child Left Behind) and cut the very programs that assist poverty area students in learning. I am a black woman, mother, and grandmother and I join in the crusade to dismiss you from your position. It is, as it has always been, don’t educate them, they may take our jobs, live in our neighborhood, make as much money as we do, or heaven forbid, marry our daughters or sons. Let’s not educate them so they will stay on welfare, stay in the hood, never work, and never meet our children. DeVos, you bring racism to a whole new level. Maybe, if you stepped outside your world, you would get a clearer view about what’s needed in lesser society. Or, maybe that is your plan all along, like so many before you. Keep them in their place, right? You must be related to Tomi Lahren. She’s also clueless.

    Love it when someone like Bernie cuts to the chase, and gets straight to the crux of the matter. It's quite a rhetorical question, but in that poignant moment, we get to see how this fool of a woman is going to respond, and yep, she doesn't surprise. 'I imagine her thinking: Yeah, like maybe, just maybe, my family collectively gave millions away to the Red party, but please don't get upset with me if I take all the taxpayers' money away from the poor, minorities, and marginalized and shift it into the pockets of the rich who can make more money. Isn't that what privilege is all about?" Who does she truly represent?

    Bernie, we're not becoming an Oligarchy we've been one for awhile as evidenced by your own bank accounts. You're a fake, Mr. Sanders, and have zero integrity. How many of you collect something off the top of every budget you create? It's not about our lousy over paid education system and under paid teachers but about your cut that concerns you.

    Has anyone ever heard of financial aid? If you can't afford college you can get a grant or loan we don't need to make colleges free for everyone and if you want talk about countries that have free colleges you'll see EVERYONES taxes are way higher than ours

    You make college free it will be just as good as a high school Deploma is now it won't give you an upper hand if everyone can and the college education would be destroyed if free because they'd have to pay for teacher willing to take less than they do now

    Mr. Sanders don't you get it ? We don't want universal anything. The Communist idea of universal healthcare that Obama tried sure was a flop. If I wanted Communism I would move to china or Russia. America was the greatest without one once of Communism. If this lady is also interested in empowering the parents to make sure their children don't escape the religious indoctrination of their choice , thank God for her. Those children will have a chance at truth , integraty ,morality , and the virtues of life no matter what grade their in. The way you liberals are bashing President Trump and his picks for government , You must really be scared he is going to fulfill his promises to drain the swamp and make America great again.------------------------------------Ernest E.

    then college can keep increasing its tuition because the "billionairs will pay it" colleges charge what they know people will pay all the way until it becomes a deal breaker. if you know anything about economics you would know how to take advantage of supply and demand, dont try and pretend you wouldnt get more if you could. and now youre sucking dry the billionairs who enrich the lives of everyone else (example: bill gates, steve jobs etc.) you complain about them while you have and iphone in your pocket. theres a reason you didnt become president.

  • 773creyes
    773creyes 2 years ago

    Bernie is asking the wrong questions anyways.. let's say we make college free. Over a 20 year span we send 10 million people to college with subsidies. We pay for 10 million, 1 million actually graduate. We just wasted tax payer money to accommodate 9 million students, de valued the degrees of the graduating 1 million (since most will be liberal arts/phycology/early childhood educ, etc. Now students with degrees can't get jobs cause others have degrees and their back waiting tables or working odd jobs with a tax payer funded degree. Lousy investment no private person would make, yet we think cause the word "government" is attached to it everything will work fine. What a freaking joke. The economy doesn't grow just because you have more graduates. We need innovation, production, capital investment and entrepreneurship. We have serious fundamental issues in our economy. Offering free college may work for a few years, unsustainable over time but Bernie doesn't seem to know that

    Whether or not you agree with bernies policies, you can't honestly disagree that he genuinely cares about America and it's middle class. I disagree with making college completely free, but I do believe he ACTUALLY cares about America itself the amount that trump CLAIMS he does.

  • Matt Garcia
    Matt Garcia 2 years ago

    All you libtards and hypocrites look so stupid with every scroll down this comment list. Bernie tried to corner her into saying that tuition shouldn't be free and she makes the very salient point that we all know to be true: there is no such thing as a free lunch. Someone will have to pay for it, but he doesn't want to acknowledge that. He immediately pivots to making the "billionaires" pay for it. ????? Wtf? Does he not realize that those billionaires employ tens of thousands of individuals who have money in their pockets because they have jobs?? Bernie has had a very long career inciting animosity between the haves and the have nots, yet he has never had to actually proved any real value to society. He's fine with telling you how to spend your money, but God forbid he actually have to provide a service that people will pay money for or even, GASP, a product that people want to buy. It'll be nice when Bernie gets sick and has to visit a hospital because I bet he pays for the absolute best care he can find. He certainly won't be treated like any of the poor people for whose causes he supposedly champions. BOOM. ROASTED.

We as a nation cannot afford free tuition and furthermore he wouldn't listen when she said she would push for higher education. What bothers me is the very nature of the questions, they are complex debates with complex answers and he asking like his way is the only way with common sense. A LOT of people disagree with raising the minimum wage due to inflation, even economists that support it saw that Bernie proposing 15 dollars was insane. gradually maybe. regardless this wasn't really a fair judge of her as a candidate nor the reasoning behind her proposed policies. I'm not even a Republican guys
