Elizabeth Warren’s Own Economic Adviser Says Her Tax Plan Not Enough To Fund Medicare-For-All

Elizabeth Warren has been extremely evasive when it comes to explaining how her healthcare plans are going to be funded.

She has been asked numerous times and she just won’t give a straight answer.

Now one of her economic advisers is even saying her tax plan won’t cover the cost.

Warren Adviser: Tax Plan ‘Not Enough’ To Cover Medicare For All

One of Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D., Mass.) top economic advisers acknowledged Wednesday that the senator doesn’t have a sufficient tax plan to pay for her proposed single-payer health care system.

“Her taxes as they currently exist are not enough yet to cover fully replacing health insurance,” University of California, Berkeley economics professor Emmanuel Saez, who helped develop Warren’s “wealth tax” proposal, told Bloomberg News.

Warren’s campaign claims to have proposed about $7.3 trillion in tax increases, enough to pay for an agenda it projects will cost about $6 trillion. However, with Medicare for All costing more than $3 trillion a year, experts across the spectrum told Bloomberg the math means she would have to raise middle-class tax rates as well.

“She is offering a Medicare for All plan and not offering even close to enough to pay for it,” the Tax Foundation’s Kyle Pomerleau told Bloomberg. “One place she hasn’t gone yet is raising the existing individual income tax for top earners.”

This isn’t Republicans saying this.

It’s Warren’s onw team!

It doesn’t sound like she is being very honest with the American people.
