Hillary Rodham Clinton's policy agenda will spike the deficit $2.2 trillion because it outspends revenue by nearly three-fold, according to a new economic analysis.
According to the center-right American Action Forum, "the proposals would increase the deficit by $2.2 trillion due to revenues increasing by $1.3 trillion while outlays increase by $3.5 trillion."
Gordon Gray, the group's director of fiscal policy, revealed that revenues would be flat under Clinton, but spending would surge.
The biggest expense, at over $1 trillion, would be giving 12 weeks of paid family and medical leave to Americans.
