Reviews for "Do You Know? Election 2016"

Hillary's tax plan only raises taxes on the wealthy, with the very wealthy taking the bulk of the burden. It should lower taxes for the middle class and the poor. Trump's tax plan lowers taxes for everyone, with the largest benefit, by far, going to the wealthy. For the average citizen, the difference in the impact of both plans is minimal. For the wealthy it's pretty huge. Of course that's just for the direct federal tax; both have other things (such as tax credits) that will play a role, too.

Overall, a pretty interesting game, though. I really like the ending :)

Depends on your definition of "wealthy"
According to this PDF from taxfoundation.org, Hillary's tax plan kicks in with different numbers once you start making around 37k as an individual (as seen here: http://taxfoundation.org/sites/default/files/docs/TaxFoundation-FF496.pdf)

Current tax brackets are as follows:

While she does not raise taxes on every bracket, she creates more brackets where anyone making over 37k as an individual will be paying more.

Thanks for the rating by the way ^_^

Should be "Gary Johnson"

One of the questions is a repeat.

Clinton has only 13 years of governing experience, not 30.

Good Questions! I got stuck on a few!

The question on taxes and immigrant were quite off. Those were distortions made by conservatives.
