Elizabeth Warren Says She’ll Release Another Plan To Pay For Medicare For All

Chris White on October 20, 2019

Sen. Elizabeth Warren announced Sunday afternoon that she plans on releasing plans in the coming weeks to fully pay for Medicare for all after months of avoiding the subject.

Warren’s decision comes shortly after South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg railed against the Massachusetts Democrat for not having a plan to pay for such a monumental and likely expensive policy. She was targeted excessively during the fourth Democratic presidential debate in Ohio.

“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,” Warren said Sunday in remarks at a town hall event. 

Warren’s position on health care is similar to that of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who has also expressed desire to implement Medicare for all, though, unlike Warren, the 2020 Democrat has acknowledged that his plan will likely increase taxes on middle-income earners.

Buttigieg, meanwhile, released an ad on Oct. 15 ahead of the Democratic debate targeting Sanders and Warren for using their Medicare for all plans to infringe “on people’s freedom.” The Indiana Democrat thrashed Warren for avoiding the issue of how to pay for the ambitious plan.

“We heard it tonight,” Buttigieg said during the debate. “A ‘yes’ or ‘no’ question that didn’t get a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer. Look, this is why people here in the Midwest are so frustrated with Washington in general and Capitol Hill in particular. Your signature, senator, is to have a plan for everything — except this.”

Warren’s campaign has not responded to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment about a specific date for her announcement.

  • I think the main plan is to win the election based on endless promises of free stuff. If she wins, the plan worked. She'll then blame the Congress. They are the ones who have to come up with the cash, not the President.

  • Last winter I had several related and unrelated medical treatments and Medicare and my supplementary plans took shielded me from horrendous expenses just fine.
    I don't need a pack of socialist clowns messing up my senior years.

  • I LOVE IT. LAUGHING SO.The Democratic Ministry of Menopausal Night Sweats - OMG. Can't wait to share. Hilarious.

  • The Crazy Cat Lady of The Democrat Cult has a plan. she says she's going to tax the top 1/10 of 1% an extra 2% tax. unfortunately for anyone that still capable of doing math this tax not only taxes the same dollar 3 times. (we're already taxed on money we have in the bank) but it will only fund the govt for a couple months. a far cry from the trillions it will cost. not counting all the revenue that will be lost when the oil industry and the insurance industry are put in the unemployment line (millions of people). what sane person would tout putting millions of people out of work? what sane person would support such an Outer Limits "Plan." then they say they have a plan for that. they'll put us all on welfare promise years of "retraining" and then make us move across the country to try and find a job at The Democrat Ministry of Menopausal Night Sweats. I have a Plan too for this perpetual fake victim and fraud. you drop out the race for the good of the country. before you resign your senate seat, pass a law that forces senators running for a higher office to resign 1st. its not my job to pay you to run for president. then after you resign we'll put you on welfare, send you to a trade school for several years, then move you to Siberia to work on refrigeration units at the State Run Ice House. thanx.
