During a recent media appearance, Elizabeth Warren was asked if her plans for healthcare reform would eliminate private health insurance. She is asked the question twice and both times, refuses to answer the question. That should concern you.

Warren Dodges on Whether She Supports Eliminating Private Health Insurance
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) dodged questions on Wednesday about whether she, like her colleague and 2020 opponent Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.), supports eliminating private health insurance in favor of “Medicare for all.”
Bloomberg’s “What’d You Miss” co-host Joe Weisenthal asked Warren if private health insurance plans would exist in her vision for the American health care system.
“Is there room for private health insurance in your vision of the ideal American health care system?” Weisenthal asked.
“Let’s start with the battle we’re having now and talk about the things we need to be doing, because I don’t want to lose sight of this,” Warren said. “It is good to talk about our overall goal, and here’s our goal, this is what distinguishes Democrats from Republicans: Democrats believe health care is a basic human right.”
Warren went on to talk about how Republicans are trying to sabotage the Affordable Care Act while Democrats are working to preserve and expand it. She never answered whether Americans could keep their private insurance plans under her health care proposals.

She’s so incapable of being honest and repeatedly gets away with it.
