During the debate on Tuesday night, Elizabeth Warren was asked a simple yes or no question. She couldn’t answer it.
She has been asked repeatedly whether or not her healthcare plan would raise taxes on the middle class.
She is simply incapable of answering this question. She dances around it every time.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
No, Elizabeth Warren Will Not Tell You Whether Your Taxes Will Go Up
It’s one question Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren won’t answer.
Try as they might, and despite repeated attempts, CNN’s debate moderators could not extract a straight answer from Warren about whether her healthcare plan — she’s a supporter of Medicare for All — would force her to raise taxes.
Her competitors didn’t have much better luck.
South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg accused Warren of dodging the question but couldn’t extract an answer.
“A yes or no question that didn’t get a yes or no answer,” Buttigieg said. “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. No plan has been laid out to explain how a multi-trillion-dollar hole in this Medicare for All plan that Senator Warren is putting forward is supposed to get filled in.”

Her refusal to answer this simple question makes her look very dishonest.
Warren, again, reframing the question of if M4A will cause middle class taxes to go up. She focuses on *cost* and reiterates they'll go up "for the wealthy and for big corporations" but for "hard working families costs will go down." Buttigieg happy to go after her on this, too.

Warren continues to dodge on whether taxes will go up with her MFA plan: "Costs will go up for the wealthy and big corporations, for hardworking middle class families costs will go down."

Warren again pivots to “costs” from “taxes” because she doesn’t want to admit that middle class taxes will go up to pay for her Medicare for All plan.

It’s so obvious that she’s dodging the question.
