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.
