Elizabeth Warren has finally announced the cost of her Medicare-for-all healthcare plan.
It’s a number so massive that it’s difficult to even comprehend.
$52 Trillion dollars.
Oh and here’s the best part. She claims she can do this without raising taxes on the middle class.
Elizabeth Warren says she would not raise middle-class taxes for $52 trillion health-care plan
Sen. Elizabeth Warren pledged Friday not to raise middle-class taxes to fund her “Medicare for All” plan, responding to pressure she faced as she emerged as a front-runner in the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.
In a new outline, Warren’s campaign said her single-payer health plan would cost the country “just under” $52 trillion over a decade, which includes $20.5 trillion in new federal spending. It estimates the proposal would cost just less than the estimated $52 trillion in spending for the current system over 10 years.
The Massachusetts Democrat’s campaign said her plan would give every American “full health coverage, and coverage for long-term care.” It added that it would do so with “not one penny in middle-class tax increases” — a response to criticism from rivals such as South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg…
Warren’s campaign says it will shift the burden of most health-care costs from consumers, in the form of spending such as premiums, deductibles and copays, to federal and state governments and employers.
This seems a little far-fetched, doesn’t it?
I just released my plan to pay for #MedicareForAll. It puts $11 trillion back in the pockets of American families, and doesn’t raise taxes on the middle class by even a cent. Here’s how we’re going to get it done: pic.twitter.com/GnPjZA0PFT

This plan is going to somehow save people money? Really?

This guy makes an excellent point:
MASSIVE lie from noted fraud Elizabeth Warren's campaign about her government takeover of health care.
Warren's $8.8 TRILLION payroll tax increase alone would directly hurt middle-class workers. https://t.co/DuPwCQ6tik

Haven’t we heard all of this stuff about healthcare reform saving money before?
It all sounds awfully familiar.
