16. I'm for any plan that will give universal coverage.

 

You tell me how there is a cheaper way to do that. Do you believe in the concept of universal health care? If now, who do you think should be left out?

If you favor any plan for universal coverage, then you need to be honest about the fact that it will cost billions more than Medicare for All.

And yes. It is a terrific benefit to the republicans when Democrats set them up with their only weapon against M4A. And yes, "She will raise your taxes" is a republican talking point. You know it is.

And you know - as do the candidates using the phrase last night - that them minute she says that taxes will go up, that is all that the media will tout. They won't examine the whole plan.

The evasive and slippery candidates are those who know they are doing their best to avoid doing exactly what they are accusing Warren of. They either should admit that they will live hundreds of thousands out of affordable health care or they will raise taxes even more than Warren's plan to pay for their media friendly but undefined plans.

So evasiveness seems to work only if you are willing to do the other side's job for them. You accuse someone of being evasive while that is exactly what you are doing.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Undecided
