So how do the states fund education? I'm assuming the fed kicks in a good portion as it stands?

So how would this mental health program actually help the mentally ill, what will you do differently to all the trained professionals already in this field ?

Thank you for giving me this opportunity to speak.
Under the DB administration, I would continue Trumps successes with the tax cuts, I would continue his successes with the record low unemployment.
What I would do differently?
I would propose a National Mental Health Program. I would instruct states to set up mental health facilities. This would address the rising opioid drug use, the dangers of potential gun crimes, the homeless. I would, under my administration, give student loan amnesty to anyone who would work at the mental health facilities.
How would I pay for this?
When you create a government program, you should eliminate one in it's place. No government should ever grow so fast as ours has done.
So under an Executive Order, I would abolish the Department of Education and return that responsibility to the individual states.
With the funds that had been going to the DoE, it would then fund the Government-run mental health facilities.
I would not raise taxes.
I would also abolish, expose the tax-payer funded Congressional Hush Fund. No tax payer should ever pay for cover-ups because congressmen tried to rape an intern.
