We like Hillary Clinton. We like her as a person and support her campaign. Her economic policy statement, in Detroit, Michigan, August 11, 2016, says it all. Here is the audio, courtesy NPR, and NPR’s analysis.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump’s economic policy statement is more of the same failed voodoo economics that have done so much damage to the United States and the world.. Trump calls on Congress to cut taxes for the wealthiest 1% and either cut services or raise taxes on everyone else. Here is Trump’s speech and NPR’s analysis.
Trump’s speech could have been made by Mike Pence, Paul Ryan, or any other Republican. But in some ways Trump is much worse on some levels – so much worse that Republicans are running away from him. Trump’s foreign policy statements include praise for Vladimir Putin, a promise to turn the US away from NATO, and the suggestion that Saudi Arabia should have nuclear weapons.
Yet, at the same time, Republican Governors like Chris Christie, Mike Pence, John Kasich, Rick Snyder, Sam Brownback are worse than Trump because they are Governors. They have and they wield power.
