Keep your hand on your wallet: Hillary’s talking “fairness.”
Among her proposals in today’s speech:
- “requiring big oil companies to either invest in alternative energy or pay into the Strategic Energy Fund to spur clean energy research and development.”
- Without any specific legislative proposals, Hillary declares, “There needs to be greater public scrutiny of CEO pay, and more independence of Boards of Directors.”
- reducing our dependence on foreign creditors (e.g. China); returning high-income tax rates to the 1990s levels; reforming the AMT; and ensuring that corporations pay their fair share of taxes.
Senator, “returning high-income tax rates to the 1990s levels” is raising taxes. Come on. You can say it. “I want to raise taxes.”
