He Said, She Said: Clinton and Trump on Taxes
With just eight days to go until the critical election, all the undecided voters are Googling where the candidates stand on the issues. We here at FOXBusiness.com scoured their speeches, debates and Tweets for where they land on some of the most important topics. First up; taxes.
“And I've been very clear about how we're gonna pay for what I want to do. It is going to be going after the wealthy, closing the loopholes on corporations. I can pledge to you, I will never raise middle class federal taxes. It is not right.” - Clinton, Pueblo, Colorado, October 12, 2016
Hillary Clinton just lost every Republican she ever had, including Never Trump, all farmers & sm. biz, by saying she’ll tax estates at 65%.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2016
“And we are lowering taxes, as you know, way down for the middle class. We're changing the tax structure completely. We had seven brackets, now we have three.” - Trump, Sandown, New Hampshire, October 6, 2016
"We have in Social Security thousands of people over 106 years old. You know they don't exist. There's tremendous waste, fraud and abuse, and we're going to get it. But we're not going to hurt the people who have been paying into Social Security their whole life and then all of a sudden they're supposed to get less. We're bringing jobs back.” – Trump, Republican primary debate in South Carolina, Feb 13, 2016
Trump's plan:— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) September 28, 2016

“I am on record as saying we need to put more money into Social Security Trust fund. That's part of my commitment to raise taxes on the wealthy. My Social Security payroll contribution will go up … I want to enhance benefits for low-income workers and for women who have been disadvantaged by the current Social Security system.” - Clinton, third presidential debate: October 20, 2016
