Former Biden Adviser Slams Warren On Healthcare: ‘Like Trying To Buy A Unicorn With A Unicorn’ (VIDEO)

Elizabeth Warren’s plan to put everyone on Medicare is getting criticized from all sides.

Jared Bernstein, a former adviser for Joe Biden recently described Warren’s plan as trying to buy and unicorn and paying for it with a unicorn.

That’s pretty brutal.

Ex-Biden advisor: Warren’s ‘Medicare for All’ like trying to ‘buy a unicorn’ with a unicorn

Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s sweeping “Medicare for All” plan is too much of a political reach to actually be implemented on Capitol Hill, according to Jared Bernstein, who used to advise her Democratic presidential rival Joe Biden.

“A good question for her is, given neither this nor the next Congress will enact your plan, don’t tell us what you’d like to do. Tell us about what you would do; what you think is in the realm of possible,” Bernstein told CNBC on Monday. “This debate, this is just basically like saying, ‘I’m going to buy a unicorn and I’m going to pay for it with a unicorn.’”

In an email follow-up to Monday’s “Squawk Box” interview, Bernstein wrote: “My point was that while I very much like the aspirations of the ‘Medicare for All’ plan, we shouldn’t spend too much time arguing about things that are very unlikely to be legislated. That goes for both the plan and its payfors,” or how she plans to pay for it.

The responses to this are pretty funny:

Warren’s plan would be a disaster.

Even if she had unicorns to pay for it.
