Betsy DeVos, President-Elect Donald Trump’s education secretary nominee, just shut down Sen. Bernie Sanders on his hallmark issue…
Sanders asked this question almost immediately after being given the floor:
“Some of us believe we should make public colleges and universities tuition free, so that every young person in this country, regardless of income, does have that option. That’s not the case today. Would you work with me and others to make public colleges and universities tuition free through federal and state efforts?”
DeVos struck back with class and common sense:
“Senator, I think that’s a really interesting idea, and it is really great to consider and think about, but I think we also have to consider the fact that there is nothing in life that is truly free. Somebody is going to pay for it.”
Mic drop. Watch it:
