Betsy DeVos Callousness on Full Display: Bilked Students Got “Free Money” By Raising Their Hands

It’s bad enough that Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has decided to pushback against the “Borrower Defense to Repayment” law passed during the Obama administration, but its even worse that she described those who were defrauded by for-profit colleges as only needing to “raise their hands to get free money”.

Most of the defrauded students were first time attendees to post secondary schools who believed the misleading lies told by profiteers because they wanted to make their lives better. “Free money” won’t restore shattered dreams… nor will it restore faith in the system. It will play into the narrative that fools who part with their money should lose out… and only fools would fall prey to the snake oil being sold by colleges who loot taxpayers to make a profit. Too bad voters don’t realize that the money lent to the “fools” who fell for the snake oil scams came from the government…. and ultimately the government— and the taxpayers— lose out.
