What Exactly is in Clinton and Trump's Tax Plans?

October 13, 20167 min
Tuesday, the Tax Policy Center analyzed the tax plans of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton — and as the director of the Center put it, the plans are practically mirror images of one another. While Trump’s plan would cut taxes for the top 1 percent by an average of $215,000, Clinton’s would increase their taxes by about $118,000; Trump would cut taxes for business, Clinton would raise them; and over 10 years, Trump’s tax cuts would total $6.2 trillion while Clinton’s would increase taxes by $1.4 trillion. This week on Money Talking, host Charlie Herman takes a closer look at each candidate's tax proposal and how it could affect Americans with Catherine Rampell of The Washington Post and Rob Cox of Reuters BreakingViews.
