In a recent article written by Brad Reifler that was recently posted in the Huntington Post, it discussed how whoever wins the election will dramatically change the economics of America. The article focused on how Trump or Clinton’s economic policies will effect the everyday American. Before focusing on the article, it is important to know who Brad Reifler is and what his background is in American politics.

Likewise, he would also simplify taxes by “condensing the existing tax bracket.” Reifler also carefully demonstrates how each candidate will effect the small business in different ways.
