BOSTON -- As Hillary Clinton lands in Boston today, she is continuing a frantic rush to the extreme left to appease left-wing activists and union bosses amid Bernie Sanders' rising support. Clinton's latest tactic is to unveil a new plan for another Washington spending spree - but her record indicates she fails to reveal just how much she plans to raise taxes for her new big-government programs.

Clinton has made “no reference to the cost of financing” her childcare initiative, which will cost at least $200 billion. "In addition, Clinton ‘called for doubling our investment in Early Head Start and the Early Head Start-Child Care partnerships.’ There is a lot of background about the importance of early childhood education, but there is no reference to the cost or financing of the initiative.” (Phillip Klein, “Hillary Clinton 'Fact Sheet' On Her Universal Preschool Proposal Doesn't Say How She'll Pay For It,” The Washington Examiner, 6/15/15)
