Analysis from the Tax Policy Center shows the effects of the tax plans proposed by the top Republican candidates and Hillary Clinton. Pretty big difference, no? The Republican plans all give huge tax breaks to the top 1% and blow up the deficit; Clinton's raises taxes on the 1% and brings the deficit down. For wholly irrational reasons, voters who say they are worried about the deficit still believe that Republicans will work harder to bring it down, even though that has been completely untrue since 1980.
