Elizabeth Warren Asked How She’ll Pay For Her Policies; She Says ‘There’s Always Money’

Published

on

Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has been asked repeatedly how she plans to pay for something like Medicare for All, and each time the question comes up, it seems as if she can’t give a solid answer.

Warren recently dismissed the idea that her ability to provide funding for the massive expansion of federal programs she wants to make law will be hindered by finite amounts of cash available.

Warren made the comments during an interview in November with Lily Eskelsen Garcia, president of the National Education Association. Garcia had asked Warren about increasing funding for Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, and how that might be paid for.

“So the answer is yes. And pay for it? This is about our priorities, what matters most to us,” Warren answered. “A budget is about priorities. … The way I see it, there’s always, come on, there’s always money. It’s there. Are we going to spend the money on defense or are we going to spend the money on our children?”

Warren’s approach to financial questions about her ambitious policies has been one of the biggest sources of criticism of her campaign.

She has insisted, for example, that Medicare for All can be implemented without taxes being raised on middle class Americans, partially by reducing the amount of money allocated toward military spending.

Most of the other Democratic candidates running for president have come out and criticized Warren for not being totally honest about where the money for her programs is going to come from.

Warren has waved off these criticisms, saying they are just rehashing Republican talking points.

Watch: Pelosi Gloats As She Fist Bumps Bill Maher, Says Trump Is Now ‘Impeached Forever’

Is she still feeling ‘somber?’

The goal of impeaching President Trump was never to kick him out of office. The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives knew from the start that POTUS would be acquitted in the Senate. It’s only a matter of time. The whole point was to stain his record because they have nothing else to go on. The economy is great. Unemployment is in the basement. Jobs are abundant. Enemies fear America. Like I said, they have nothing. Check out Pelosi on Bill Maher, via The Blaze: In the days leading up to the House of Representatives passing the articles of impeachment against President Trump, Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi told members of her party to appear “solemn” during proceedings. “Don’t cheer, keep it solemn,” Pelosi said, according to a swing-district Democrat. One month later, and the appearances of solemnity appears to have gone out the window.

The LSU Tigers are fresh off a college football national championship after defeating Clemson on January 13. Unlike other teams, collegiate or professional, LSU didn’t shun President Trump in order to gain some credit with far-left loons in the media. The team showed up to the White House and created a memory that will last forever. On top of that, a video of some of the players dancing in the Oval Office has since gone viral. WATCH: https://twitter.com/ConnorDespino/status/1218245636165898241?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1218245636165898241&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F01%2Fgoing-viral-national-champs-lsu-tigers-dancing-in-oval-office-retweeted-by-president-trump-awesome-videos%2F Who’s that lady? From Fox News: On Friday the players danced in suits and ties — joined by the woman, whose daughter later identified her on Twitter as her mother, Gemi Bordelon, wife of former LSU Tiger offensive tackle Ben Bordelon, who went on to play for the NFL’s San Diego (now Los Angeles) Chargers in 1997, Heavy and WBRZ-TV in Baton Rouge reported. The Bordelons joined the team on the White House visit because they’re close with members of the Louisiana congressional delegation, WBRZ reported.
