Warren promises 'Medicare for All' funding plan

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., the Democratic candidate who "has a plan for that," is working on a plan to fund "Medicare for All," a single-payer healthcare policy estimated to cost between $28 trillion and $32 trillion over 10 years, reports The New York Times.

Speaking at an event Oct. 20 at Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa, Ms. Warren said, "I plan over the next few weeks to put out a plan that talks about, specifically, the cost of Medicare for All and, specifically, how we pay for it," according to The New York Times.

As the ascendant candidate in the Democratic race, Ms. Warren faced scrutiny in the last debate for dodging questions about raising taxes to pay for Medicare for All. She is campaigning in support of the Medicare for All plan crafted by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. Mr. Sanders has said his Medicare for All plan would be funded by tax increases. Ms. Warren has not said she will raise taxes to pay for the plan, focusing instead on how the plan will reduce costs for middle-class families.
