Hillary's Platform Comes Into Focus as Her Campaign Trail Begins

We've been familiar with Hillary Clinton's politics for a while now, but as she embarks on her second campaign trail for President, her official platform is beginning to come into view. While this is only the start, these are a few key points she's made clear: 

Education

While meeting with students in Iowa, Clinton expressed her belief that community college should be free. “We need a new vision,” she said, “of how we’re going to do education that can get people excited again.” reports Fusion.

Same-sex marriage

The Presidential candidate also takes a supportive stance towards same-sex marriage. "Hillary Clinton supports marriage equality and hopes the Supreme Court will come down on the side of same-sex couples being guaranteed that constitutional right," said Adrienne Elrod, a Clinton spokeswoman, CNN reports.

Income Inequality

“There’s something wrong when CEOs make 300 times more than the typical worker. There’s something wrong when American workers keep getting more productive, as they have, and as I just saw a few minutes ago is very possible because of education and skills training, but that productivity is not matched in their paychecks. And there’s something wrong when hedge fund managers pay lower tax rates than nurses or the truckers that I saw on I-80 as I was driving here over the last two days,” Clinton said. 

Equal Pay 

Clinton is also determined to help women receive equal pay to their male counterparts.
