Elizabeth Warren releases Medicare for All plan l ABC News

The 2020 candidate says she’ll devote $20.5 trillion to public healthcare without raising taxes on the middle class. READ MORE: https://abcn.ws/2oH1Xb6

After months of questions and attacks from opponents, 2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren released a plan on Friday that addressed funding for Medicare for All with a promise not to raise a single penny in middle class taxes, an attempt to plug a growing hole in her narrative as the candidate who has a plan for everything except for funding health care.

The plan consisted of two parts: an estimate of what single-payer, government-run health care would cost and how Warren would pay for it without raising “one penny” of taxes on middle-income Americans.

  1. I can imagine Elizabeth Warren explaining her space program a lot like her Health Care Program. We'll be the first Nation to go to the Sun. When asked How ? You'll burn up. She'll reply, We're going to go at Night.

  2. Green new deal -> $$Trillions$$
    Medicare for all -> $$Trillions$$
    Tuition Free ——> $$Trillions$$
    College Debt Elimination —> $$Trillions$$
    Beautiful sales pitch libtards 🤦🏻‍♂️

  3. Warren's plan will lead to a precarious situation of existing jobs, as it burdens businesses indiscriminately. A better solution, like Bernie's plan, would cut the intermediaries between citizens and their health care plans, actually providing EVERYONE with health care.

  4. If you tax all the billionaires at 90% then you would raise 200 billion a year the first year, after that they leave for a country with lower taxes like (ANY OTHER COUNTRY) or some tax free Caribbean country. That covers 4% of the cost the first year only 0% after that. Where is the rest of the money going to come from? NOT FROM YOU no way THEY PROMISED AND I BELIEVE THEM CAUSE THEY'RE DEMOCRATS and we all know democrats have never lied.

  5. How do people keep falling for government's that promise to use other peoples money to pay for what you are going to get. The debt is so high right now that trust me the tax man is coming sooner rather than later. The democrats are like a girl going on a date. The guy promises amazing things. First we're going on a balloon ride then take a limo to the airport dinner in Paris then I'll buy you a nice ring at a jewelry store. Sounds good until he says oh ya I'll need your credit card to pay for all this. The tab always comes around. What's worse is he's already maxed out your kid's credit cards. Lets see what you owe. Debt 21,000,000,000,000 divided by 300,000,000 that equals $70,000 dollars for every man, women and child or about 280K per household.

  6. Let me see if I understand her plan. The basic plan is this roll out the best medical plan in the world. Better than any European country but then tell everyone that you won't have a personal income tax like European countries because the other guy will pay for it. Guess what you're the other guy. You don't think the Europeans tax the rich but they still need to tax the middle class to pay for it. So if you think a 60% personal Federal income tax isn't coming to a town near you then you are a real idiot.

  7. A few big differences between Warren & Bernie:

    Bernie has been committed to Medicare for All from the beginning. Warren only recently declared she is fully supportive of Medicare for all.

    Unlike Warren, Bernie is committed to small donor fundraising even in the General election. Warren has said she would only do small donor fundraising in the Primary, so Bernie won't feel any sort of pressure to bend on his policy stances once elected.

    Warren originally planned on voting for Ben Carson as Secretary of Housing, but then flip flopped when she was criticized.

    Warren worked with republicans to repeal the 'Medical Device Tax' which would have helped defund the ACA, in order to appease the Medical Device Industry in her state.

    Unlike Warren, Bernie has a long history of progressivism dating back to the 60s. Warren was a staunch Republican up until the late 90s.

    Bernie has also been one of the longest serving members of congress, he was a mayor in Vermont, and has a lot of experience in governance compared to Warren.

    Warren voted twice to increase the Military budget brought forth under Pres. Trump, which appropriated over $81Billion for purchase of Aircraft, Weapons, Missiles, and Combat Vehicles. On top of that it appropriated several Billion dollars toward other parts of the DoD.

    Bernie wants to cancel all student debt, Warren wants to implement a means-tested solution. A Means-tested program will likely further split people into the "haves" vs. "have-nots" and are easier to attack, dismantle, and weaken. Take a means-tested program like Welfare vs a universal program like Social Security as an example. Welfare is very unpopular whereas Social Security is very popular.

  8. I am for Bernie's plan, but be aware of hacks that are fighting against Medicare for All to protect the insurance industry:

    Healthcare Ad Spending Exceeds $65 Million in 2019 as Insurance Industry Ramps Up Effort to Kill Medicare for All

    How Health Insurance Industry Allies Are Going to Lie and Attack Elizabeth Warren’s Medicare for All Plan

  9. She said that billionaires and ONLY the billionaires would pay for the 52 Trillion dollar plan through taxes….fact: there are 607 billionaires in the United states with an estimated net worth of 6-8 trillion dollars combined…..how in the fuck would they pay for 100 percent of it!
    Ps: I'm against free healthcare

  10. NOT EVEN CLOSE TO 52 Trillion …. If you took all the money from all the billionaires in the US, and there are 1,000 of them or something, if you took all their money away if wouldn't be enough to pay off the debt for just next year. Taxing just the rich isn't gonna work.

    But wait! Is it naive of us to wonder when exactly "billionaire" became the only tax bracket incapable of credibly claiming to represent the middle class? There are lots of other rich people we could tax. For instance, say, our nation's 14,000 or so centimillionaires? Or is a net worth between $100 and $999 million basically the same as "middle-class" to Melissa Francis?

    Also, Melissa Francis is just wrong. After last year's market calamity America actually doesn't have anywhere near 1,000 billionaires. Nonetheless, the remaining 359 of them control such a staggeringly out sized percentage of America's wealth that they could very easily pay off the projected $1.8 trillion 2009 budget deficit — and still be very wealthy!

    The $2.07 trillion our billionaires collectively control would not, unfortunately, front the entire $3.1 trillion budget — which probably explains why the government is going after their Swiss bank accounts, too.

    Unfortunately, we could only do this trick once. The very next year we'd be faced with another staggering budget deficit and we'd have no billionaires left.

    Now we realize Melissa Francis was speaking off the cuff, and it is hard to get these things right on live television. So her error is forgivable. But we thinks someone needs to fact check those fast talkers on CNBC.

  11. Deceiving Symantics people come on!! Warren says big corporations are going to pay… We all know corporations pass on their increased cost to the consumer 😡 meaning middle class costs will go up Duh!!! While Warren says "taxes" won't go up but the truth is costs will!! Warren being deceiving saying "taxes" won't go up. Please don't fall for another symantic demonicrat 👿 BS lie about health care like Obama Care turned out to be.
