Warren Won't Admit Medicare-for-All Will Raise Middle-Class​ Taxes

Over the course of the 2020 presidential election, Democrats have made a lot of grand promises to the American people. These promises ultimately boil down to free handouts and the cancellation of debt. As you can imagine, there are a series of details which Democrat candidates are leaving out in their quests to get elected.

First, even if a Democrat managed to weasel their way into the White House, they can’t just snap their fingers and make healthcare free or erase student loan debt. The legislation and proposals which 2020 Democrats are talking about would have to make it through Congress. Short from a massive increase of socialist representatives and senators along with a Democrat president, none of the left-wing proposals which are currently being discussed would pass.

Secondly comes the aspect of payment. Each of the Democrats’ plans is set to cost trillions; yet, when these candidates are challenged on how they’re going to fund plans like the Green New Deal and Medicare-for-All, that’s when things get truly dicey.

This is especially the case with 2020 Democrat Elizabeth Warren. Per reports from Fox News, Warren has, on multiple occasions, been asked how she plans to fund Medicare-for-All; yet, she refuses to give a straight answer.

Warren’s Illusion vs. The Facts

Warren’s refusal to explain her plan for funding Medicare-for-All is rooted in her desire to maintain the illusion which she’s selling. The illusion is that Americans can somehow get free, government-controlled healthcare without tax surges and a decrease of service quality. During last week’s fourth Democrat debate, Warren refused to outrightly admit that Medicare-for-All will raise taxes on the middle class.

On Monday, the 2020 Democrat traveled to Iowa in order to speak at a high school. During this time, Warren was questioned about precisely how she plans to fund Medicare-for-All. Warren responded to the inquiry by urging for Americans to “ask me that when the plan is out.”

The Reality About Medicare-for-All

Warren’s evasiveness has been called out by members of her own party and various Americans who understand the reality here. Medicare-for-All is set to cost $60 trillion dollars within the next decade; if a proposal like this were to succeed, it would be numerically impossible to fund it without raising taxes on the middle class. Whether Warren waits a few weeks or a few months, it won’t change the facts.

Even Bernie Sanders has come out and admitted that Medicare-for-All would raise taxes on middle-class families; Warren’s refusal to also admit this reflects poorly on her as a candidate and further proves that she’s just another crook who wants to get elected. Moreover, this purposeful dishonesty is simply another reason why Warren is absolutely unfit to become the next president of the United States.
