As Campus Reform reported, Hillary Clinton didn’t give specifics on who will actually benefit and what “wealthy” means:

Hillary Clinton unveiled a sweeping proposal Monday to shift the cost of higher education from students to state governments and wealthy individuals.

The “New College Compact,” which is projected to cost about $350 billion over 10 years, would be financed primarily by capping the value of itemized income tax deductions for wealthy families, according to The New York Times, though it remains to be seen how she would define “wealthy” or how much she would curtail deductions.
