QAnon Rep. Gets A Brutal Education After Not Appearing To Realize How Public Schools Are Funded

Far-right Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene seemed to forget U.S. tax dollars cover a majority of public school funding when she lambasted President Joe Biden's speech about education.

In his first joint address to Congress on Wednesday night, President Biden introduced the "American Families Plan." If passed, the plan would subsidize child care, offer paid family and medical leave and provide free universal preschool and two years of free community colleges for those who want it.

Greene slammed the proposal's education plan and hawked it as yet another conspiracy theory.

The Georgia Congresswoman—who was relieved of her committee assignments by the House of Representatives in response to her dissemination of false information and conspiracy theories and harassment of school shooting survivors—tweeted:

"Federally funded school from age 3 to 20 doesn't sound like education, it sounds like indoctrination. All at your expense. By force in the form of taxes."

Greene seemed to have forgotten local, state and federal taxes largely fund public education—which was something she touched on an hour before when she supported parents who were vehemently opposed to mask-wearing mandates in schools.

She said at the time:

"Taxes pay for the schools."

Yet, she conveniently forgot about the concept of public school funding when bashing Biden's plan—which would help decrease the costs of raising children; attending school and seeking higher education; and acquiring health insurance for a vast majority of Americans.

Twitter was relentless in their mockery of Greene.

Class dismissed.
