Clinton proposing tax credit to help with heath care costs
Hillary Rodham Clinton is proposing a tax credit to help people deal with the rising costs of health care, the first in a series of tax benefits the Democratic presidential front-runner will be rolling out in the coming weeks.
The health care credit will cover what Clinton’s campaign described as "excessive" out-of-pocket expenditures. Eligible families will get up to $5,000 in credits and individuals as much as $2,500.
Clinton has tried to create a wedge on taxes with her main rival for the nomination, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. The former secretary of state says that she is the only primary candidate committed to not raising taxes on average workers.
She is in the midst of a campaign swing through Memphis and Nashville on Friday.
