Hillary Clinton believes she has that plan for America. With that being said, we're going to take a just-the-facts look at 10 ways Hillary Clinton could grow the U.S. economy if elected.

1. Simplify and cut small business taxes
Hillary Clinton has positioned herself as a champion of the working class during this election, and one of the primary ways she plans to grow the economy is by focusing on the small business cornerstone of the U.S. economy.

3. Major investments in transportation and energy infrastructure
It's no secret that America's infrastructure is aging, but Clinton believes she has a plan to both fix the problem and create jobs.

4. "Make it in America" investments Investments in the U.S. manufacturing industry also come front-and-center for Hillary Clinton. She's emphasizing a $10 billion investment, known as "Make it in America," on her campaign website that'll bring workers, corporations, universities, and government together to keep jobs, profits, and products in America.

5. Emphasize childhood education funding Fifth, Clinton plans to make large investments in education. Clinton would make preschool universal for all four-year-olds, she'd double investment in the Early Head Start and Early Head Start-Child Care Partnership, and she'd create the Respect and Increased Salaries for Childhood Educators (RAISE) initiative in an effort to increase pay for early educators and child care providers.

9. Boost Social Security benefits for select retirees Clinton's Social Security reforms call for wealthier individuals to pay more into the program (which she would accomplish by lifting the payroll tax earning cap), while simultaneously boosting Social Security benefits for lower-income and disadvantaged persons.

10. Financial system reforms Finally, Clinton's financial system reforms are expected to put the U.S. economy on more solid footing. Some of Clinton's proposals include a risk fee on the nation's largest financial institutions, the closure of the Volcker Rule loophole that allows banks to invest billions of taxpayer-backed dollars into hedge funds, and imposing a tax on high-frequency trading which can destabilize the stock market. Clinton believes these changes will stabilize the financial market and better prepare it for future recessionary shocks.

The independent investment firm that produced the article for their clients believes it well enough to publish it.

Of course, you are a near perfect reverse barometer on nearly any subject.

Who is their client.....Hillary, after all that is what they are water carrying for isn't it?

The Motley Fool is an investment firm informing their readers, Eddie.

Stay Special.

No problem Rein, it just passed right over your head. Afraid the water you carry shields you from reality.

Fool.com isn't an investment firm insofar as the buzzfeed of "market research."

As a publication, it is a step below SeekingAlpha and ValueWalk.

Consider this: The three top spots in the Hulbert Financial Digest's five-year rankings through June 30 of more than 200 investment-advisory services all buy and hold quality companies. Remarkably, all three are subscription newsletters published by the same advisory firm, the Motley Fool in Alexandria, Va., which was founded by brothers Tom and David Gardner in 1993.


As a reviewer, you are a step below the WSJ. Maybe several steps.

They are as good a source for the info in this article as any, better than most.

But it is gratifying that no one so far retorts what they report. On the contrary, a lot of Hillary haters prolly actually agree with her stated policies. When they do, they feel compelled to say that if they agree with her, she must be lying.

See how that werks?

Are these her public positions or private positions?

Interesting WSJ link corky, that gives a little more credibility to fool.com. Previously, I had read and viewed that website as a peddler of novice "investing help," and buy/sell recommendations of T25 blue chips.

What's there to dispute in the OP article itself? It is likely that the author used excerpts from HRC's own website for this puff piece, lol.

Raising the cap on a tax many wealthy don't pay anyway is going to save social security? This is something that will solely affect the upper middle class. Which I guess goes in with the master plan to kill them off.

So, you DO agree with her policies. She must be lying.


It's the math, stupid.

I can't see her getting any of her agenda passed, as long as there are 41 Republicans to filibuster.

The way it's going, that's a big if. The House may be 10 votes separation. And besides, we've nuked filibusters before.

But I bet even you agree with most of her proposals as they are cited here. So, again, she must be lying.

Republicans were happy to work with her when she was a Senator, though.

these seem like a good start if she does not have a Republican House and Senate

These are all positive specific recommendations which stand apart and above "Make America Great".

It would be amazing if half these proposals see the light of day once the election is over.

I can find policies i agree with in all of the five major candidates for president.

It is a shame that more "heavily informed" ReTorters cannot say the same, and thus develop presidential candidate derangements along partisan lines.

The math that tax to target the wealthy gets paid by very few of them while the middle class again gets stuck with the bill?

How is she planning to pay for all this investing she wants to do? Hint: I sense an incoming deflection...

And I won't even bring up her totally avoiding realism in regards to the national debt.
