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.
- Using the extra $26B we get free community colleges
- 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).
