At a rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Hillary insisted she was going to “create more fairness” in the nation but spent a lot of time reiterating her attacks on Donald Trump’s taxes, again claiming he “rooted for the housing collapse.”
Clinton also attacked banks and Wall Street saying, “We can’t let Wall Street wreck main street again.” She then spent several minutes slamming Wells Fargo Bank, hedge fund companies, and Wall Street investors.
“We’re tired of the cowboy culture on Wall Street that wrecked the economy and we’re not going to let it happen again,” she yelled to those assembled at Harrisburg’s Zembo Shrine (also known as the Zembo Mosque).
She called for tougher regulations on the investment and banking sectors.
Clinton did not mention the hundreds of thousands she made in speeches given to the very firms and banks she spent time attacking.
But that only served as a basis to again regurgitate the claim that Donald trump was happy when Americans were losing their homes during the housing crash.
“One of the biggest contributors to what happened was the housing crisis, remember?” she said to her supporters. She continued saying, “Donald Trump rooted, he rooted for a housing collapse.”
Then, in an attempt to take one of Donald Trump’s key issues, Hillary went on to propose that companies planning to move headquarters or manufacturing facilities outside the U.S. should be forced to pay back “every” tax break they’ve “ever gotten” before being allowed to move.
“And you know I’m tired of American companies shipping jobs overseas,” she told the crowd. “So, we’re going to make them give back any tax breaks they’ve ever gotten. If they wanna move jobs out of America they’re gonna have to pay an exit tax.”
The Democrat next attacked Trump over his reluctance to release his tax returns.
Hillary insinuated that Trump somehow broke the law with the tax payments he purportedly made as highlighted by a recent report in The New York Times and insisted she would end the tax rules that she claimed only the rich can take advantage of.
To the applause of the crowd, Clinton claimed that when she becomes president she would pass a law to force all presidential candidates to reveal their taxes before being allowed to run for the highest office in the land.
As usual, Clinton again threw out the everlasting Democrat plan to “raise taxes on the rich.”
Hillary also did not mention to her audience that she used the same tax dodging trick critics say Donald Trump did in the 1990s.
Hillary went on to ridicule Trump as being unfit for the presidency.
At the rally Clinton echoed comments made at an earlier event the same day where she told a townhall-style event that Trump needs to be “laughed at.”
In response to a 15-year-old’s question on Trump’s alleged insults toward women, Clinton replied, “We need to laugh at it. We need to refute it. We need to ignore it. We need to stand up to it.” It was later discovered by Breitbart News that the girl’s question had been written for her by her progressive state senator father.
Clinton also attacked the Second Amendment and claimed guns are the reason the nation’s inner cities are so filled with violence.
“We have got to have a counter-movement to this reckless, irresponsible propaganda that’s pushing guns everywhere to everyone,” she said. “The time has come for us to act. The deaths and the injuries and the losses are so great.”
