Just to Put That In To Perspective Funding Public Universities Would Cost ~$80 Billion a Year, and That $38 Billion Was An Increase On An Already ~$240 Billion Dollar Budget
Fighting Islamic Extremism is not worth what it has cost this nation. In fact our military policies have continually proved to be more damaging than anything. Drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen, Iraq and other nations have not pacified the region. The rise of ISIS should not have come as a surprise. This region has always been of strategic importance to the United States and geographically that is a no brainier. That said, it is not worth the cost, both economic or in human life. Bernie Sanders opposed the war in Iraq and would put an end to the constant state of warfare that has become the Middle East. ISIS is no threat to American sovereignty and in no way are drone strikes going to quell extremism in the region. In fact everything seems to suggest it simply creates more. Bernie Sanders has opposed the expansion of the War on Terror and the enormous amount of money we have thrown away on it in the last decade. Bernie Sanders will reshape our foreign policy to the benefit of the American taxpayer and the American abroad. Bernie Sanders 2016!
