“Medicare for All” was a big flash-point between Senator Amy Klobuchar and Democratic rivals in last night’s (Tues) fourth presidential debate:
Elizabeth Warren supports “Medicare for All” and was asked, will taxes go up:
“Costs are gonna go up for the wealthy, they’re gonna go up for big corporations. They will not go up for middle-class families.”
But Bernie Sanders acknowledged taxes would go up for more than just the wealthy — however…
“For virtually everybody, the tax increase they pay will be substantially less than what they were paying for premiums and out-of-pocket.”
“At least Bernie’s being honest here and saying how he’s gonna pay for this and that taxes are gonna go up. And I’m sorry, Elizabeth, but you have not said that, and I think we owe it to the American people to tell them where we’re gonna send the invoice.”
Klobuchar says let people keep their health insurance if they want, or give them a public option.
