Here’s plan: Trump wants to increase military spending by $54 billion. So we reclassify education as a branch of the military.
Defense spending already tops $600 billion a year. Federal education spending is only about $70 billion.
I know what you’re thinking. If we do that, the armed forces are going to gobble up school funding. Not necessarily.
They can’t spend all the money they get now! The waste, fraud and abuse in the military is legendary. Piles of money – literally piles of cash – simply go missing and no one knows where they went or is held responsible.
