It's Clinton's turn to attack Trumponomics 33 MIN, 10 SEC

On Monday, Donald Trump delivered his economic plan to the Detroit Economic Club, promising a room full of suits that he'll cut taxes across the board. Today, Hillary Clinton delivered her plan to blue-collar workers at a factory in a Detroit suburb, calling Trump's plan "the Friends and Family Discount."

But, veteran investigative reporter Steven Brill says much of the money's been wasted — in part because we've been preparing for the last attack instead of getting ready to deal with the next one.  His cover story in next month's Atlantic Magazine asks the question, "Are We Any Safer?"
