4. Ask him the same question DeVos got at Harvard - about billionaire donors driving the GOP

Student: So, You’re a billionaire with lots and lots of investments, and the so-called “school choice” movement is a way to open the floodgates for corporate interests to make money off the backs of students. How much do you expect your net worth to increase as a result of your policy choices and what are your friends on Wall Street and in the business world—like the Koch brothers—saying about the potential to get rich off the backs of students?


In this case, ask Johnson "Many billionaires donate to your campaign and to GOP dark money funds that are used for congressional campaigns. How often do you go to policy conferences in which billionaires or their employees or donor networks are speaking or writing? How often do you read sources like the Federalist or Reason or white papers from the Cato or Heritage or Bradley foundation that are funded by GOP billionaires?"


We shouldn't be talking about Johnson's words, we should be talking about his underlying REASONS for saying those words.
