Hillary Clinton promises ambitious jobs program for her first 100 days [podcast]

August 10, 2016

On Monday, Hillary for Florida announced new analysis that shows Florida could add 656,00 jobs under Hillary Clinton’s economic plans, while it could lose 214,000 jobs under a Donald Trump presidency. The findings are based on two recent reports by Moody’s economist and former adviser to John McCain, Mark Zandi. Zandi’s analysis showed that under Clinton’s plans, the economy overall would create 10.4 million jobs nationwide while under Trump, the economy would lose 3.4 million jobs and the nation would plunge into a “lengthy recession.”

On “Pensacola Speaks,” Michael Shapiro, an economic policy advisor to Hillary for America, said, “She’s talking about a plan that is going to make the largest investment in good-paying jobs since World War II, and she’s going to work to make that investment in her first 100 days in office. This plan is going to create millions of jobs across the country.”

Shapiro explained, “It’s going to start with the largest investment in infrastructure. Things like roads, things like bridges, things like ports, like a courthouse in Pensacola… In addition to infrastructure, she’s going to be talking about cutting red tape and cutting taxes for small business so they can hire and grow. Small businesses create 60-percent of new jobs in America, and she wants to be a president that is unleashing small-business job growth. Her plan’s also going to invest in making it here, in American manufacturing and making products here. She’s got a $10 billion plan to create Make It in America partnerships nationwide.”
