THE WEEK

1. Clinton rejects Trump economic proposals and unveils her own
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton delivered an address on the economy on Thursday, flatly rejecting the policies proposed by her Republican rival, Donald Trump, in his economic plan earlier in the week. Clinton said Trump, a billionaire businessman, “wants to give trillions in tax breaks to people like himself,” while pretending to be “on the side of the little guy.” Clinton called one part of Trump’s proposed tax cuts the “Trump loophole” because, she said, it would let him “pay less than half the current tax rate on income from many of his own companies.” Trump, who reportedly will meet with GOP officialsFriday in an “emergency meeting” about his campaign, responded by saying Clinton “doesn’t have the talent” to jump-start the economy.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
