ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton takes aim at Republican rivals saying she is looking forward to debating with them about the economy if she becomes the Democratic nominee. "Pay close attention," to what Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz are saying, she told supporters in Pennsylvania. "They want to go back to trickle-down economics on steroids," she said. "We had a republican president who slashed taxes for the wealthy....they took their eye off the financial markets and the mortgage markets and we had the Great Recession," she said. "So for heavens sake why would we go back to the failed policies that dropped us into the ditch that the Republicans dug for our country." "I don't know who they are going to end up nominating, but I am looking forward, if I am fortunate enough to be the nominee, to actual having a debate about economics," Clinton said.
