Clinton Discusses Economy

From The Clinton Campaign:

Today in Gilford, NH, Hillary Clinton addressed the challenges facing middle class Americans, and the need to change the tax code to reward middle class families. She called for comprehensive middle class benefits and tax cuts to help families cope with growing economic challenges.

Clinton would extend the middle class tax cuts, including the child tax credit and marriage penalty relief, and give generous tax credits to help families afford healthcare. She would also offer up to $1,000 in matching tax cuts to help families save for retirement, expand the Earned Income Tax Credit, and dramatically increase higher education tax cuts. She would tie the minimum wage to Congressional salaries, and reform the Alternative Minimum Tax so that middle-class families never face a stealth-tax they were never meant to pay.
