Elizabeth Warren Releases Medicare For All Plan, Math Debate Ensues
Elizabeth Warren has released a proposal outlining the particulars of her “Medicare for All” healthcare plan.
Ending her months-long silence on how to pay for moving the entire nation into a government-run healthcare system, Elizabeth Warren on Friday laid out a detailed plan that relies on trillions of dollars in new taxes on the rich and corporations, big pay-ins from employers and aggressive cost cutting.
With her proposal, Warren becomes the first of the Democratic candidates to fully describe how a Medicare for all plan would be paid for. Her chief rival on the party’s left, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who has campaigned in favor of a government-run medical plan for years, has outlined various options for financing, but has not committed to one.
