Senator Elizabeth Warren could become the nominee for Democrats in the 2020 Presidential election. She’s in the top three in the polls with Senator Bernie Sanders and former VP Joe Biden.
Her policies align closely with Socialist Bernie Sanders, including the issue of healthcare and Medicare for all. The difference with the two candidates is that Bernie admits that there will be a tax increase on the middle class, but Warren has repeatedly refused to answer the question.
CNN’s John King called Warren out on her reluctance to come clean on taxes:
During the CNN debate, Senator Elizabeth Warren also refused to answer Jake Tapper about whether she’d raise taxes on the middle class to enable Medicare for all to be put in place.
She got into a back and forth during the debate last night but dramatically dodged the answer to talk about a needy patient.
It was a lecture without an answer…Nice try.
Warren always sounds like she’s yelling but she uses this technique to keep the topic on what she’s talking about without answering the question. Jake Tapper tried repeatedly to get her to answer but she quickly changed the subject.
She refused to answer after the debate too:
Surprise ..It’s a hidden cost ..She will not answer …kept dancing around the question
Will Taxes Go Up ?

Bernie Sanders recently reluctantly said he would have to raise middle-class taxes for Medicare for all:
Jake Tapper asked Bernie Sanders about whether ‘Medicare for all’ will be free or will the middle class be taxed.
Sanders stuttered a little and then said under his breath that taxes will be necessary: “We’ll have to do that.”
Noooo! Didn’t they tell everyone it would be FREE?
Yes, taxes will go up in order for everyone to have Medicare for all so money doesn’t grow on trees.
While Democrats want the voters to think that they will magically receive free healthcare or college, the reality is that none of these things will be free to Americans. It’s hard to believe that there really are people who believe what Sanders is telling them.
