Let's see - If we take the $54B (military) + $16B (wall) Trump wants to spend well ... that buys a lot of "Medicare for all Americans" and some free college tuition (what those coal miners really need)

My idea is simplistic for sure. However, it makes a $#!+-ton more sense than throwing another 10% at the military when we already spend more money on the military than the next 7 countries combined (including Russia). And the wall ... well I've never thought immigration was as big a problem as Trump & Co make it out to be, but the fact is with all his rhetoric, illegal immigration has dropped pretty drastically so I see even less of a need for it. And we all know its going to cost way more than their budget predictions ($16B ).

mokus icon NEW: The Iraq war could have paid for college for everyone for 30 years. But no, we had to create tens of thousands of disabled vets based on $#!+ data instead of a workforce of capable individuals.

96GradAlum icon NEW: There are problems in every system (gub'ment, higher ed, health care, etc, etc) but investing in education and health care is money far better spent than on bombs and attacking people that haven't attacked you.
