5:31 am
how to have the talk and to outsmart scammers. this is "on the money." your money, your life, your future. on tuesday, primary voters in two battleground states ohio and florida will go to the polls and the number of potential presidential candidates in the race could still narrow. everyone is promising better economic times ahead, but are the promises grounded in reality? what do the plans mean to your wallet. >> get him out now. get him out. >> excuse me, i'm talking. >> and you know what they say about men with small hands -- >> it has already been a wild year on the campaign trail, what will all of the noise mean for the economy and your money? not even the experts can say for sure. >> it is amazing. it's almost a civil war within
5:32 am
are having difficulty with this. >> but there will be a new president next year and that will mean big changes for your taxes, retirement, and jobs. on toxs, republicans are over the map. there is a consensus to lower taxes, but there is a disagreement on how to do that. donald trump would cut deeper lowering the top individual rate to 25%. for the democrats, the emphasis is on getting the rich to pay more. hillary clinton would require those with incomes higher than $1 million to pay at least 30%. retiry retirees may want to pay attention to. bernie sanders can calling an increase from everyone of about $465 per month. hillary clinton would target increased benefits to specific
5:33 am
time off from their career to raise children. >> the biggest deal would be that for trade. >> secretary clinton supported virtually every won of these disastrous trade agreements written by corporate america. >> we have to get rid of those horrible trade deals. it's going to burst. we can't continue to lose $500 billion. >> i could sum it up this way, get used to it. >> all eyes turn now to march 15th when we may get more colorfulty on who will win and which of these plans might stand a chance of becoming law next weekend. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> could your tax bills shrink
5:34 am
scott hodge is from the tax foundation, thank you for being here today. >> thank you for having me. >> let's start with dond trump's plan, he slashes tax rates for everyone, but you said it could had $10 trillion to the deficit in the next decade. he says he could make that up for cutting waste and fraud, is that viable? >> no, it's a dramatic overreach and promise. he does cut taxes across the board for individuals and corporations, but he does it in a very ad hoc way and i don't think he makes the systemic or structural changes that could lead to dra make improvements in the overall efficiency or productive ity of the economy. >> let's talk about bernie sand erp ers, he wants to raise taxes for just about everyone.
5:35 am
those making over $10 million. >> we crunched the numbers and found it reduced the size of the economy by almost 10% and relimb nated nearly five million jobs. >> you're talking about a decline in gdp of 10%. >> yes, the level of gdp, the level of productivity, reduced wages across the board for everyone. >> how about ted cruz. he is talking about a consumption tax like europe, what are the pros and cons? >> it's very interesting. he eliminates the corporate income tax and replaces payroll tax with business activity tax or flat tax. it's like a value added tax. it's very efficient, it's good
5:36 am
full expensing for business investment, it's good for productivity, but it places an additional burden on workers and it raises a lot of revenues for the federal government that allows ted cruz to reduce individual income tax rates to 10%. that is dra make for everyone. so that would off set the burden from the higher tax. >> how about hillary clinton, how do you think it would impact people approaching retirement? >> i think it could have a very chilling effect on the market and on investors overall. what she tries to do is control when people realize capital gains by taxing people at different rates when they realize the gains. so if you're at a high income, your tax rate could be as high as 47% on your capital gains.
5:37 am
next seven years depending on gains. that could slow down the market considerably by reducing the amount of churning that goes on, which she argues is a good thing, but it could have a chilling effect on the market overall. >> if the agreements that we have right now were abolished, what would be the impact on the global economy? >> trading with other nations and others is very good for all of us at the end of the day. the more we have free trade, the better off we are, the lower the prices we pay for goods and the better services we get, unfortunately a lot of people react in a very visceral manner
5:38 am
like donald trump and bernie sanders sanders on t a fareful of what it could do to the united states and the economy as well. ita could lead to trade wars and that's never good for anyone. >> scott, thank you for your time today. >> you bet, thank you. sheer a look at what is making news as we go into a new week "on the money." trying to boost europe's faltering economy this week. mario draghi ierks i cut interest rates again and is trying to get banks toe lend more to businesses and consumers. it's one that has grown slowly for years. after digesting the move on friday, markets roast sharply early on friday. the dow climbing at the open and continuing up at the close on friday preponderate irs has a billion dollars they want to give people that are due refunds from all of the way back 2012
