Since 9/11, US Has Spent $21 Trillion on Militarism at Home and Abroad 

According to the new report, it would have cost far less than $21 trillion for the U.S. to make major investments in climate action and other key global and domestic priorities. As the analysis notes: $4.5 trillion could fully decarbonize the U.S. electric grid; $2.3 trillion could create five million $15-per-hour jobs with benefits and cost-of-living adjustments for 10 years; $1.7 trillion could erase student debt; $449 billion could continue the extended Child Tax Credit for another 10 years; $200 billion could guarantee free preschool for every 3-and-4-year old for 10 years, and raise teacher pay; and $25 billion could provide Covid vaccines for the population of low-income countries.
