Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said during the third presidential debate in Las Vegas on Wednesday that she “will not add a penny to the debt” if elected president.
Indeed, Hillary Clinton’s claim is not even close to true.
The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget predicts that under Clinton’s policies, the debt would increase by $9 trillion over a decade.
“Clinton’s plan would increase both spending and revenue,” the Washington, D.C.-based independent non-profit’s analyst said. “Under our preliminary updated central estimate, she would increase primary spending by $1.65 trillion over the next decade, including about $500 billion of spending on college education, $300 billion each on paid family leave and infrastructure, and significant new health-related spending.”
