Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), a leading contender for her party’s 2020 presidential sweepstakes, recently released her long-awaited Medicare for All plan. Warren estimates her grandiose plan would cost a mind-blowing $52 trillion over its first decade, give or take a trillion.
But wait, it gets better—or much worse, depending on your political perspective. According to Warren, who has a long history of telling tall tales, “My Medicare for All plan gives everyone good insurance and cuts their health care costs to nearly zero – without increasing middle-class taxes one penny.” Obviously, this seems way too good to be true.
Actually, Warren’s entire plan, including her absurd assertion it will be “paid” for, is patently ridiculous on its face. As Ronald Reagan would say, “There you go again.”
