Does Hillary Clinton want a tax cut?

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is making some pretty interesting comments about our nation's tax system, perhaps hinting at her policies should she run for the white house in 2016.

While trying to explain recent comments that her family was "dead broke" when they left the white house in 2001, Clinton told a German newspaper about her husband's finances:

"In our system he had to make double what he needed in order just to pay off the debt, and then to finance a house and continue to pay for our daughter's education," Clinton said.

Outfront, former Clinton labor secretary Robert Reich and former director of the Congressional Budget Office, Douglas Holtz-Eakin. He's also a former McCain economic adviser.
