Hillary Clinton says she'll put her husband 'in charge' of the economy -- which is half the job. [ABC News, May 15, 2016] Hillary Clinton's economic plans would send our economy into a tailspin: Whereas Trump will cut taxes and reduce anti-growth regulations, she plans massive new tax-and-spend policies, endless regulations and tight government control. Her corporatist trade and immigration deals would eviscerate the U.S. middle class. Clinton's policies are worse than current policies, which have already been evaluated as failures. The Federal Reserve has lowered its estimated growth rate to 1.8% per year through 2019 based on current policies. CBO expects only 2% growth per year for ten years.
