Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos got dragged on Twitter today for the 10.6 billion slash in funding to essential education programs that came from Trump's proposed federal budget for 2018.

Today she stood before the House Appropriations subcommittee in a two-hour hearing to answer some hard-hitting questions on educational spending in the federal budget. Among the things on the chopping block are after school activities, arts education, and literacy initiatives for k-12 students. Loan forgiveness programs for college grads working in the public sector or non-profits could be axed too.

Suffice to say people are not happy and are demanding answers. When Twitter caught word of the hearing users chimed in using the hashtag #QuestionsForBetsy. Per usual, the Internet has no chill.
