Bernie Sanders tried to get free stuff from Betsy DeVos, Trump’s Education Secretary nominee. In her Senate confirmation hearing, the failed presidential candidate asked DeVos about giving everyone free college tuition. Her reply left him choking on his words.
DeVos replied to Bernie’s quest for freebies by saying, “there’s nothing in life that’s truly free. Somebody’s going to pay for it.” Even Bernie had to acknowledge this is true and he immediately stumbled.
Watch the video below to see Senator Sanders silenced with this simple economic fact.
Bernie always seems to forget this simple fact. He’s busy carrying the heavy water for the teachers unions who oppose DeVos’ nomination because she is a strong advocate for school choice which emboldens educational decisions for parents and therefore is seen as a threat to the unions.
Bernie attempted to get back at DeVos by asking if she was nominated because she is rich. He’s all for class warfare and demonizing successful people. As you can see in the video below, she didn’t allow him to win this argument either. DeVos has been working for educational opportunities for 30 years.
If Bernie Sanders is truly for providing the disadvantaged with better educational choices, then he should support DeVos and school choice, but he is under the thumb of the unions.
Share this so others can see Bernie get burned!
