So, President _____ has said he’s planning on slashing the education budget by about $9 billion dollars because, well, who needs education, because you educate children and they grow up to be educated adults and vote for Democrats.
It makes sense.
But then how does this make sense ... Betsy DeVos, who clearly, through her donations to the _____ campaign, purchased her position as Secretary of Education—all the while having never been a teacher, administrator or principal in any kind of school anywhere—is being protected by a security team costing We The People $1 million a month.
And DeVos is the only Cabinet member to receive this costly level of protection. In the past, the Education Secretary was protected by a team of department employees, which did include a number of former Secret Service agents, but all that changed on February 10 when DeVos was blocked from from entering the Jefferson Middle School Academy in Washington, D.C. by a handful of unarmed protesters chanting “Go back! Shame! Shame!”
The contract for DeVos covers the next four years unless it is canceled, and it the cost for the first eight months is $7.8 million; it remains unclear if that cost will rise over the coming months and years, though with the way things work in Washington, and with _____ and his Cabinet and family spending our money as if it were their own, I can see the costs rising.
And all because some people told Betsy to “Go Away” and the Department of Education, under the leadership of Betsy DeVos, declared that those protestors were a threat to Betsy DeVos.
DeVos is a multi-millionaire who bought her Cabinet position supports charter schools and plans to lower funding for public education because, you know, keep the kids dumb and they’ll grow up Republican.
