The contrast between the candidates is clear when it comes to American wallets and taxes. Hillary Clinton believes the wealthy are not paying a fair share and would like to increase their taxes and use the revenue for tax credits, student loan programs and other benefits for the middle and lower classes. Donald Trump instead proposes cutting rates for all Americans, but would especially cut tax rates for corporations and families passing wealth between generations.
