Massachusetts Stumbles Over Key Healthcare Proposal On Campaign Trail

Via The Washington Examiner:

ROCK HILL, South Carolina — Elizabeth Warren’s embrace of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ “Medicare For All” proposal is beginning to dog her on the campaign trail.

The senator from Massachusetts and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate’s catchphrase “I’ve got a plan for that” doesn’t apply to a healthcare platform since hers is largely modeled on the longstanding idea pushed by Sanders, a socialist running for the nomination on a far-left plank.

Warren has proudly declared during the opening debate over the summer in Miami she was “with Bernie” on his signature single-payer proposal.

But in two town halls in New Hampshire this week and then again on Saturday in Rock Hill, South Carolina, likely Democratic voters seized the microphone and requested more information on “Medicare For All” or pressed her on how the program would be funded, including whether it would result in a middle class tax hike.
