    As a middle age man who is also currently a student, it is my humble opinion that we should dump as much money as we possibly can into education, as education is an investment, not an expense.

    While I generally agree with you, it depends who gets the money, what portion of it actually gets invested in the students and how efficient that spending is. Our ROI seems to be down the drain in both education and healthcare in the US, there are too many money leaks in the system.

    The simple solution is that you give everyone healthcare, and give everyone the opportunity for a higher education. Single-payer healthcare would likely be cheaper on the American people then our current system and schools freed from the current financial burdens could actually base admittance on who deserves it instead of who can afford it. Available space would become the new deciding factor and the schools could let in only those that meet academic expectations.

    The quality of life in America is slipping behind other modern societies, and that is mainly due to a strong public objection to the expansion of certain social programs while at the same time inflating out military spending to truly idiotic levels. It time for America to encourage our allies to expand their own military forces, so that we can redirect some of that spending back into our communities.
