Clinton: Trump wants biggest tax break to wealthy: trickle-down on 'steroids'

Hillary Clinton accused Donald Trump of planning "to give the biggest tax break ever to the wealthy" during Wednesday night's presidential debate.

"It's truly trickle-down economics on steroids," Clinton said. "The plan he has will cost us jobs, and possibly lead to another Great Recession."

Clinton said, "His whole plan is to give the biggest tax breaks ever to the wealthy."

"Cutting taxes to the wealthy? We tried that. It hasn't worked," Clinton said.

The Democratic presidential nominee said that analysis of Trump's spending plan has found that it would add a whopping $20 trillion to the national debt.

Trump in turn said, "He plan is going to raise taxes, and even double your taxes."

"Her plan is a disaster," Trump said. "We will have a massive tax increase" if Clinton is elected, headed.
