    Warren says she will soon release plan to fund 'Medicare for All'

    Warren says she will soon release plan to fund '''Medicare for All'''

    Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren said Sunday that she will soon release a plan detailing how to pay for "Medicare for All" after facing criticism from some of her 2020 rivals for declining to get into specifics about how her health care plan would be funded.

    "What I see though is that we need to talk about the cost and I plan over the next few weeks to put out a plan that talks about, specifically, the cost of Medicare for All and specifically how we pay for it," the Massachusetts senator said during a campaign stop in Indianola, Iowa.

    Warren has backed 2020 competitor Sen. Bernie Sanders' Medicare for All plan. She said Sunday that every Democratic candidate knows "the cheapest possible way to make sure that everyone gets the health care that they need is Medicare for All, and that's why I support Medicare for All."

    "You know right now the cost estimates for Medicare for All vary by trillions and trillions of dollars and the different revenue streams for how to fund it, there are a lot of them," she said. "So, this is something I've been working on for months and months and it's got just a little more work until it's finished."
    Good. She's incredibly intelligent and competent policy, especially in regards to economics and finance. I figured it was a matter of time.

    Warren will have to thread an awfully small needle for this. She'll have to...

    a)overcome the ridiculous narrative that paying an additional, say, $8000 in taxes is somehow worse than paying $16,000 in premiums, deductibles and copays, and simultaneously...
    b)avoid giving Republicans the soundbite that she will raise your taxes, which is of course what all the fuss is really about.

    I can hardly wait. Should be a laugh. She's virtually dumb as a rock about economic and financial matters, although she has a good command of Progressive Poppycock in those fields.

    That **** is so disingenuous.

    It makes me cringe when I watch them keep trolling past Sanders and Warren with that gotcha question.

    Well she could flat out lie and just say that "Mexico will pay for it" like the liar you support did.

    I hope she finally mentions that the middle class is getting a big fat, burdensome, tax increase. I'm sure they'll love it.

    If she said that it would be more believable than the mumbo-jumbo she usually spews.

    If she can come up with a better way to fund Medicare For All -- better than Bernie Sanders himself -- more power to her. I'm up for better ideas. Lets have at it.

    If she promises that she can provide M4A without increasing taxes, she'll be in a world of trouble.
