Despite releasing 50 plans a minute in the hope that Dem voters would forget that she lied about being an American Indian, Senator Elizabeth Warren did not actually have a health care plan.
Instead, she, like Kamala, borrowed Bernie’s plan. And then, also like Kamala, lied about it.
When she was finally confronted in the last debate about the inevitable tax hikes on the middle class, she got some shills in a room and tried to come up with an actual plan to pay for it. That’s something Bernie has yet to really do. But, now that the plan has been released, Senator Bernie Sanders says it’ll hurt job creation and the economy.
In other words, the socialized medicine plan is too socialist.
“I think that that would probably have a very negative impact on creating those jobs, or providing wages, increased wages and benefits for those workers,” Sanders told ABC News. “So I think we have a better way, which is a 7.5% payroll tax, which is far more I think progressive, because it’ll not impact employers of low wage workers but hit significantly employers of upper income people.”
Sanders is complaining that Warren’s broad spectrum ‘tax’ on employers will hit companies across the board and reduce hiring. Ironically, that’s a libertarian argument from the only official socialist in the top tier of the race. And he’s attacking Warren, who claims to be a “capitalist”, for a tax that will dissuade companies from spending more money on workers. With some class warfare thrown in.
Medicare-for-All is obviously a scam. It would destroy health care in this country. Or rather finalize its destruction.
And yet the two socialist candidates in the race are now squabbling over whose socialized medicine plan will hurt the economy worse.
I guess, Elizabeth Warren could accuse Bernie Sanders of using “Republican talking points.” But I don’t see anyone buying that horse.
