INDIANAPOLIS -- While Hillary Clinton campaigned in Northern Indiana Tuesday, her husband Bill Clinton spoke at an event in Indianapolis. The former President says Hillary has the most realistic plan for working to fix the country’s economic problems.
Bill Clinton’s speech focused on income inequality, student debt and terrorism. He says Hillary’s economic plan involves giving companies a 15 percent tax credit if they share their profits fairly.
“You’ve got to reduce the power of the hedge funds and the billionaires to drive all the profits of corporations only to the shareholders and the top management,” Clinton said.
The former president also talked about rising student debt in America, and Hillary’s plan to let student loan recipients refinance their debt.
“Why can you get a mortgage on a house for 20 or 30 years? Because it’s a lifetime asset, right? So is an education,” Clinton said.
Clinton ended by talking about terrorist threats around the world, taking an indirect shot at Hillary’s competition by saying she wouldn’t need to go to school to learn about geopolitical complexities.
