from 2000 to 2014 which includes the obama administration, but also all eight years of the george w. bush presidency and the great recession in between. there are a lot of factors that play into the trend of a shrinking middle class as this ad shows it. the ad goes on about what hillary clinton might mean for the economy. >> spending goes up. >> this 1 is true, at least if clinton gets her way. the trump campaign points to studies of clinton's actual policy proposals by pointed to clinton's own words. clinton has said she'd like to provide universal pre-k, more government coverage of college tuition, 12 of paid family leave following the birth of a child and $2 billion annually for alzheimer's research. those all come with hefty price tags. the question for voters is whether they think these are worthwhile investments and whether they agree with how clinton proposes to pay for

policies you agree with before you vote, but the economy since as simple to predict as this ad might have you believe. with your truth test brandon rittiman, 9news. >> you can see all of our truth tests on 9news.com each with links to our research. we will continue to hold campaigns accountable for what they say. both donald trump and hillary clinton get a chance tonight to show how they'd lead the united states armed forces as commander in chief. trump and clinton will both take questions about national security, military affairs veterans issues. the questions will be from nbc news and the audience which will be full of military veterans and active service members. they'll be on stage back to back but not together, clinton first followed by trump. both have laid out their military plans in the past 24 hours. >> peace through strength. unlike my opponent, my foreign policy will emphasize diplomacy, not destruction.
