Sanders criticizes Warren's health care plan: 'I think we have a better way'

Bernie has a better way, but like Trump, he won't tell you his secret plan until after you elect him President.

Remember when Bernie Sanders found his inner Republican and attacked Elizabeth Warren for the costs of her Medicare for All Plan and for raising taxes to pay for her plan? Yet, to this date, Bernie has still refused to discuss costs or provide any detail regarding how he would pay for his proposals.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders criticized his 2020 presidential rival Sen. Elizabeth Warren's funding plan for "Medicare For All," calling his plan "more progressive" and squaring up the two most progressive candidates in the race for the Democratic nomination to do what neither of them have wanted to do: draw distinctions between each other.

Sanders, who has centered his candidacy around the fight for his single-payer Medicare for All legislation, told ABC News in an interview published Sunday that although he and Warren believe everyone should have health care, they differ on how to fund it. Her plan, he also said, would "have a very negative impact on creating jobs."

"We do disagree on how you fund it," Sanders told ABC News. "I think the approach that (I) have, in fact, will be much more progressive in terms of protecting the financial well being of middle income families."

Sanders specifically criticized the Massachusetts senator's nearly $9 trillion tax on employers. "I think that that would probably have a very negative impact on creating those jobs," Sanders said of the tax Warren's plan calls an "employer Medicare contribution." "Or providing wages, increased wages and benefits for those workers."

3. Who cares what it costs?

 

Haven't we learned the last 3 years that we can waste money on anything and it doesn't matter? Might as well use it on healthcare and education instead of stupid things like Trump's golf and a useless wall.

6. So Like Trump's Plan, Will Mexico Pay for Bernie's Medicare for All Plan?

 

Plus, if Warren can make her plan pencil out, why can't Bernie?
