Vice President Joe Biden responds to Warren's 'Medicare-for-all'


In a PBS interview this week, Joe Biden joined in mocking her for it. After the interviewer outlined what Warren is saying about the dollars math, he said “She’s making it up.”
  • Judy Woodruff:
    Elizabeth Warren today put out an estimate for the cost of her Medicare for all plan.
    She put it at around $20 trillion over a number of years. In the past, the estimate had been $34 trillion. She's talking about making it up with — the difference with targeted defense spending cuts, a wealth tax, cracking down on tax evaders.
  • Joseph Biden:
    She's making it up.
    She's making — look, nobody thinks it's $20 trillion. It's between $30 trillion and $40 trillion, every major independent study that's gone out there that's taken a look at this.
    There's no way. Even Bernie, who talks about the need to raise middle-class taxes, he can't even meet the cost of it.
    Look, we don't have to go that route. All we have to do is go back, restore Obamacare, make it — provide a public option, further subsidize the ability to get into a gold plan. My plan will cost about $750 billion over 10 years. We can pay for that.
    It doesn't cost $3.4 trillion per year. And it can be done now, not in four years, not in eight years, not in 10 years, like they're talking about.
Nancy Pelosi also undermined Warren and Bernie when she said that things like Medicare for All and the other crazy far left talking points in the Dem primary are “the wrong track.”
“As a left-wing San Francisco liberal I can say to these people: What are you thinking?” she said.
And now, today, Biden said this to The Hill, basically laughing at how dumb Warren’s plan is, and how dumb her explanations of it are.
“It’s a very difficult way to get there, that she’s talking about, and the idea that she can get across town to $20 trillion…I don’t know, look, even 20 trillion. Where does she get the money?”
But warnings or not the Dem primary continues to spiral into the left-wing drain. It’s pretty hilarious.
