Free College instead of increasing the Defense Budget

Reprioritize educating the US population over dramatic Defense spending

Defense - The Fiscal 2018 budget is currently $700B which is an $80B increase, or $26B more than Trump requested.  Partly due to the over 300 amendments added to the Bill.  Per Rumsfeld, we already can't account for where 25% of the defense budget spending each year which has reached over $3T.  Also, a significantly increased budget does not push NATO countries (especially Germany) to spend their fair share on defense.

Education -

  1. Using the extra $26B we get free community colleges
  2. Using the entire $80B budget increase we get free community colleges, plus 4 yr colleges and universities

Tuition-free community college for ALL students at ALL income levels (more students with "ready to work skills"; more students only  incur 2yr of University expenses).
Free tuition and fees at public four-year colleges and universities for students from households making $100,000 or less per year (would still pay room & board).
