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

And finally, the Trump campaign said that, if worst came to worst, we could just sell off America’s assets.  Really?  Even if we sold all our aircraft carriers and the Statue of Liberty – even if we let some billionaire turn Yosemite into a private country club – we still wouldn’t even get close.  That’s how much debt he’d run up.

Maybe this is what he means when he says ‘I love playing with debt.’  Someone should tell him our nation’s economy isn’t a game.  The full faith and credit of the United States is sacred.

We know what sound fiscal policy looks like and it sure isn’t running up massive debts to pay for giveaways to the rich. And it is not painful austerity that hurts working families and undercuts our long-term progress. It’s being strong, stable, and making smart investments in our future. So let’s set the right priorities and pay for them, so we can hand our children a healthier economy and a better future.

Now third, there’s Donald Trump’s tax plan.

You know when I was working on this speech, I had the same experience I had when I was working on the speech I gave about foreign policy and national security. I’d have my researchers and my speechwriters send me information. And then I would say really? He really said that? And they would send me all the background and the video clip, so here goes.

He’d give millionaires a $3 trillion tax cut. Corporations would get two trillion more dollars. That means he’s giving more away to the 120,000 richest American families than he would to help 120 million hardworking Americans. Now even in this era of rising inequality, this is like nothing we’ve ever seen.

Now you and I know that the wealthiest Americans and the biggest corporations don’t need trillions of dollars in tax cuts. They need to be paying their fair share.

And now, before releasing his plan, Trump said, ‘Hedge fund guys are getting away with murder.’ And he added, ‘They’ll pay more.’

Then his plan came out.  And it actually makes the current loophole even worse.  It’s gives hedge-fund managers a special tax rate that’s lower than what many middle-class families pay. And I did have to look twice because I didn’t believe it.  Under Donald Trump’s plan, these Wall Street millionaires will pay a lower tax rate than many working people.

And of course, Donald himself would get a huge tax cut from his own plan.  But we don’t know exactly how much because he won’t release his tax returns.
