Hillary for America tells Ohio voters that Trump is bad for economy

Now second, there’s Donald Trump’s approach to our national debt.

Now, I have a plan to pay for all my proposals, because I take America’s long-term financial health seriously.

Donald Trump has a different approach.  He calls himself the King of Debt.  And his tax plan sure lives up to that name.  According to the independent Tax Policy Center, it would increase the national debt by more than $30 trillion over 20 years.  That’s ‘trillion’ with a ‘t.’  It’s much, much more than any nominee of either party has ever proposed.  An economist described it with words ‘not even in the universe of the realistic.’

And how would he pay for all this debt?  He said, and I quote, ‘I would borrow, knowing if the economy crashed, you could make a deal.  It’s like, you know, you make a deal before you go into a poker game.’

Well actually, it’s not like that at all.

The full faith and credit of the United States is not something we just gamble away.  That could cause an economic catastrophe.   And it would break 225 years of ironclad trust if the American economy has with Americans and the rest of the world.  Alexander Hamilton would be rolling in his grave.  You see, we pay our debts – that’s why investors come here even when everything else in the world goes wrong.

You don’t have to take it from me.  Ronald Reagan said it, ‘We have a well-earned reputation for reliability and credibility – two things that set us apart from much of the world.’

Now maybe Donald feels differently because he made a fortune filing bankruptcies and stiffing his creditors.  I’ll get to his business practices in a minute, but the United States of America doesn’t do business Trump’s way.

And it matters, it matters when a presidential candidate talks like this, because the world hangs on every word our President says.  The markets rise and fall on those statements.  Even suggesting that the United States would default would cause a global panic.

Trump also says, we can just print more money to pay our debt down.  Well we know what happened to countries that tried that in the past like Germany in the ‘20s and Zimbabwe in the ‘90s.  It drove inflation through the roof and crippled their economies.  The American dollar is the safest currency on the planet.  Why would he want to mess with that? And so we have to stand up for our history. Democrats and Republicans have always understood this. We can’t let these loose, careless remarks get any credence in our electorate or around the world.
