Clinton Outlines Plan To Crack Down On Corporate ‘Special Interests’

LORDSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton is vowing to get tough on oil, insurance, credit card, student loan and Wall Street investment companies.

The New York Democrat, who has been criticized for taking corporate special interest contributions, claims her plan would save middle-class Americans $55 billion a year.

Among other things, the presidential hopeful says she’ll force oil companies to invest some of their record profits in high-wage, clean-energy jobs, and prohibit credit card companies from imposing hidden fees and sudden rate hikes.

Clinton is campaigning in Ohio, where she’s hoping to break rival Barack Obama’s string of eight straight victories since Super Tuesday. Ohio’s primary is March 4th.
