VIDEO: A heartfelt Rick Snyder valentine to Dick and Betsy DeVos celebrating their corporate love affair


There are few people who deserve a valentine from Michigan governor Rick Snyder more than Dick and Betsy DeVos. From funding his campaign to paying for ramming Right to Work through by threatening/bribing Republicans in the legislature, the DeVos family has been there for Rick Snyder every step of the way. In fact, it could reasonably be said that Rick Snyder is a business partner or even an employee of the DeVos family.

Our friends at SnyderFails have put together a video that shows the valentine that Rick Snyder would send to Dick and Betsy DeVos if he were allowed to publicly admit the central role they play in his administration.

From Sam Inglot, project director of SnyderFails:

Governor Rick Snyder has proven his love for wealthy corporations and campaign donors time and time again. During his time in office, Snyder has handed over billions of dollars in unaccountable tax giveaways to big businesses while shifting the burden onto middle class families and seniors in the form of higher taxes and cuts to our neighborhood schools.

We hope this video informs people of where Snyder’s priorities truly lie, but in a light-hearted manner. Even though the video parodies Gov. Snyder, the issues it highlights are of serious importance. Michiganders want a governor who works for the people, not wealthy donors who are only interested in increasing their corporate profits.
