    A photo from April shows now-Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton being firmly held up by a man on her right side to keep her from falling over as she addressed an overflow crowd during a campaign stop in Los Angeles, while a man on her left side is seen urgently extending his arm to aid in propping up Clinton. Obscured behind Clinton is a third person whose extended hand can be seen reaching out to steady her left arm.
    .
    The man holding Clinton up has one hand clasping her right hand and his other hand grasping her bicep. Clinton is leaning forward speaking to the crowd using a microphone held in her left hand.
    .
    Another photo taken by Ralston from the same perspective shows Clinton was standing on a large, square concrete platform meant for sitting that was wide enough to hold several standing people.
    .
    It is not clear what made Clinton lose her balance such that three people had to rush to keep her from falling down.

    My Thoughts:

    Let’s see she’s standing on a platform large enough for several people and she needs assistance to keep her up right and not fall over. There’s something really wrong with her, the American public should require a non-biased doctor to give her a full exam and publish the report, way too important for our country not to have this requirement.
    .
    Oh and before anyone here that carries her water all the time, Trump should also have an full exam also.

    I would second that, and bet Trump would come out in the best health. Hillary would fail miserably. Let me suggest this, if Hillary is elected, Kaine will be the real winner. America will be the real Loser!

    How about having Hillary stand through 3 Presidential debates? Would that suffice? Oh, that's right, Trump will make sure that those 3 Presidential debates will never happen.

    Let's see if Trump will come up with his own health controversy. He seems to be able to screw up every opportunity he gets in this campaign. I call it a 100% miss rate. His "campaign reset" this week that was supposed to begin with his policy speech on the economy, after the weeks of chaos and infighting he created before. This "reset" just proved to be yet another screw up. We are talking about assassination threats and the founders of ISIS, instead of the economy, despite the fact that the latest data on the US economy revealed that it is weak, we are facing a huge debt and a significant income gap.

    Maybe it is good though that we are not talking about Trumps plans for the economy. Quite a number of Republicans would be surprised what is in there. So, lets continue to talk about Hillary's health.

    You must have missed his economy speech last MONDAY. I wonder if Hillary will have to take a 25 min so called bath room break during the debate.

    I didn't miss his economy speech last MONDAY, but apparently you did. Why do you think I commented on it? Did you know that Trump proposed a bigger government infrastructure spending program than Hillary? Did you know that Trump proposed an expansion of the military and no changes to entitlements? Did you know that Trump proposed tax cuts for everybody? Trump is continuing the economic policies of the REPUBLICAN ESTABLISHMENT of tax cut and spend like hell. Meanwhile, Hillary proposed the most socialist plans since the Carter administration, with taxes for the rich and free stuff for everyone else. Both, Trump and Hillary will explode the national debt. The debt ceiling that TEA PARTY REPUBLICANS risked a government shutdown over would need to be raised significantly under both. So much for the anti-establishment candidate.

    What Trump proposed is very close to what Regan did and he reversed the Carter years in 3 years and brought the GDP to an average of 4.8%. Our GDP has been in the tubes for over 8 years and just last quarter it was 1.2%. So tell me what's wrong with reducing the corporate tax down to 15% to bring them back to the US and return the Trillions they have over seas with a 10% tax to start bring jobs here. Our military hasn't been this low since WW2, which the people in the pentagon have said and we would be hard pressed to have a two front war if needed, so tell me what's wrong with expanding the military's overall capability.

    Try to understand the pie chart below. Trump does not want to touch Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, which is 49% of the federal budget. Trump wants to expand the military, which is now at 16%. Mandatory spending and paying the interest on the current debt is another 19%. The only part of the federal budget where Trump could actually save money is the 16% of discretionary spending. However, Trump wants to spend more than $500 billion on infrastructure. There would be a huge net increase in spending.

    Trump wants to cut taxes for pretty much everybody. He is a nice guy, isn't he? The result is a huge revenue deficit.

    The combination of a huge net increase in spending and a huge revenue deficit is called a ginormous increase in federal debt, which significantly and permanently increases the percentage of interest payments out of the federal budget for decades. That's why Tea Party Republicans wanted to decrease spending and taxes at the same time for years. The decrease in spending results in less debt and a smaller government. The decrease in taxes results in a more active economy. Donald Trump, however, is a big government guy, so he will spend tax money and cut taxes at the same time with no regard for future generations. The hope that the economy will pick up and generate the revenue needed to offset the increase in spending is a pipe dream. It hasn't worked since the Dot-com bubble bust in 2000.

    So, in conclusion, if we want to increase the size of the military, we also need to pay for it by increasing taxes or cutting in the federal budget elsewhere. Same goes for the infrastructure funding. If we want to cut taxes, then we have to cut spending somewhere in the budget. Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security are long-term liabilities that are currently unchecked. They will continue to consume more and more of the federal budget. Something has to be done about this as well.

    Your post shows you have spent too much time in your mom's basement and not enough in the real world.

    For starters, Corp tax rate could be ZERO and they still would not bring jobs back to the USA.

    Why?

    Because there are more things that effect a Corp's profit margin than the corp tax rate.

    Why do you think T-Rump has his stuff made by child and slave labor in 3rd world and communist counties?

    Mega Corp's do that because they do NOT have to worry about EPA regs, OSHA, DOL ( Dept of Labor), workers' comp, etc.

    T-Rump has people making his products that are 12yo that work 60 hours a week at $.90 per hour without overtime, that use hazardous chemicals without proper PPE ( personal protective equipment) or training and or not protected by OSHA or labor laws.

    So, if T-Rump is concerned with bring jobs back to America, why doesn't he put his money where his mouth is?

    Oh, that's right.......he would lose too much profit.

    In the words of Pink Floyd:

    "Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash

    ...............

    keep your hands off of my stack.
    Money, it's a hit"

    Trumps economic plan is like Regan's and he brought the terrible GDP under Carter to an average of 4.8%, it can be done, but what does Hillary want to do, the very same BS that Obama has been doing for 8 years and look where that's got us.

    You can certainly choose to believe this. Many believed that George W. Bush had a Reaganomics plan. GDP growth and national debt are just two different things. GDP growth can potentially be generated by increasing the national debt and using this money to spur the economy. That is the plan of both candidates, Trump and Hillary. Trump mostly wants companies to choose how to spend the money, while Hillary wants the government to spend the money of free stuff. Once GDP growth is healthy, we can pay down the national debt. However, that approach hasn't worked since the Dot-com bubble bust in 2000. Even before 2000, the national debt has been on the rise since the early 80's.

    Trump is simply not a fiscal conservative. Some may say that Trump is not a conservative at all. These policy differences should have been discussed in the primaries, but those focused on calling people names and bombastic statements. People simply love reality TV, so we got a reality TV candidate with all the good, the bad and mostly the ugly.

    Yes, Hillary's plan is worse, but it is still a choice between two bad plans. Note that Congressional Republicans stayed quiet on this, not only because they would oppose their current candidate and pay dearly for it by retaliatory attacks of a vindictive candidate, but also because economical policy is eventually negotiated between the President and Congress. At this point, Trump has an 80% chance of losing, so Congressional Republicans chose not to engage Trump.

    By the way, Stengun is right in pointing out that labour costs are not being reduced by cutting taxes. In fact, US labour cost has never been significantly reduced. We simply can not compete with the 2nd or 3rd world in labour-intensive industries. Instead, we should focus on maintaining our technological lead, investing in and spurring STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) industries.

    Labour Costs refers to the relationship between compensation per hour and labor productivity, or real output per hour, and can be used as an indicator of inflationary pressure on producers.
