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

Now, you may have noticed – there’s a lot missing.

The King of Debt has no real plan for making college debt payable back or making college debt free, this is a crisis that affects so many of our people.

He has no credible plan for rebuilding our infrastructure, apart from the wall that he wants to build.  Personally I’d rather spend our money on rebuilding our schools or modernizing our energy grid.

He has no ideas how to strengthen Medicare or expand Social Security – in fact, his tax plan would endanger both.

He has no real strategy for creating jobs, just a string of empty promises.  But then maybe we shouldn’t expect better from someone whose most famous words are, ‘You’re fired.’

He has no clean energy plan, even though that’s where many of the jobs of the future will come from and it is the key to a safer, healthier planet.  He just says that climate change is a hoax invented by the Chinese.  Well I’ll give him this – it is a lot easier to say a problem doesn’t exist than it is to actually try to solve it.

And of course he has no plan for helping urban and rural communities facing entrenched poverty and neglect.

Every single one of these issues matter.  They affect whether young people can go to college, whether single moms can support their kids, whether grandparents can have a dignified retirement.  What could be more important?

In the heat of a campaign, in a culture that rewards brevity and clever phrases on social media, it is tempting to give simple answers to complex problems.  Believe me, I have been tempted. But I’m not going to do that because it really matters that you know what I believe we can and should do so you can hold me accountable, in the election and then in the White House. Because whether we increase employment in distressed rural communities, relieve the burden of college debt or get health care to the people who still don’t have it – that all matters. And to me that’s the purpose of politics, to empower people in a democracy to have better lives, to make better choices, to seize opportunities to give themselves and their families that pathway to the future.

And one more thing.

I think Donald Trump has said he’s qualified to be President because of his business record.  A few days ago, he said, and I quote, ‘I’m going to do for the country what I did for my business.’  So let’s take a look at what he did for his business.

He’s written a lot of books about business – they all seem to end at Chapter 11.  Go figure.
