Bernie Sanders to Betsy DeVos: Would You Be Here If You Weren't a Billionaire?


At her confirmation hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Bernie Sanders asked Donald Trump's pick to become Secretary of Education if she would be standing where she was if she were not wealthy.

Sanders asked: "Do you think that if your family had not made hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions to the Republican Party that you would be sitting here today?"

"I do think there would be that possibility," she said. "I have been working hard to be a voice for students and to empower parents to make decisions on behalf of their children, primarily low-income children."
