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

Published

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.

It’s a day ending in “y,” so 2020 Democrat frontrunner Joe Biden said something silly. It’s just par for the course, at this point – like a tweet from President Trump. It’s just going to happen. The fact that the former vice president, who has yet to be endorsed by Barack Obama, still has trouble stringing along basic sentences, is troubling. Unless you’re a Democrat. In that case, everything is fine.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, told The Post, saying the virtual broadcasts were not helping. “We need action immediately, and Biden can’t do anything real right now.” Here’s more COVID-19 randomness, via Twitter… https://twitter.com/TheFirstonTV/status/1243943188202741760 https://twitter.com/5thYear/status/1244003547605348352 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1243996304444923904 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1243989599128563713 https://twitter.com/HardFactorMark/status/1244018816780324865 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1243981209807532032 https://twitter.com/darrenrovell/status/1244018174347153412 https://twitter.com/barstoolsports/status/1244010121568456706 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1243986977340325893 https://twitter.com/HKWORLDCITY/status/1243865641448169474?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1243865641448169474&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwatch-senior-who-official-avoids-taiwan-question-talks-about-china-abruptly-ends-interview%3F%253Futm_source%3Dtwitter%26utm_medium%3Dsocial%26utm_campaign%3Ddwtwitter https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1244006484754583552 https://twitter.com/BroBible/status/1244012697135370240 https://twitter.com/BNODesk/status/1243965506983428096

It was reported on Friday that the United States overtook China and Italy with the most confirmed cases of coronavirus. But why would anyone (except for the left-wing mainstream media) believe the Chinese are reporting their numbers accurately? Don’t fall for it, y’all. From Bloomberg: The long lines and stacks of ash urns greeting family members of the dead at funeral homes in Wuhan are spurring questions about the true scale of coronavirus casualties at the epicenter of the outbreak, renewing pressure on a Chinese government struggling to control its containment narrative. The families of those who succumbed to the virus in the central Chinese city, where the disease first emerged in December, were allowed to pick up their cremated ashes at eight local funeral homes starting this week. As they did, photos circulated on Chinese social media of thousands of urns being ferried in. CONTINUED: Outside one funeral home, trucks shipped in about 2,500 urns on both Wednesday and Thursday, according to Chinese media outlet Caixin. Another picture published by Caixin showed 3,500 urns stacked on the ground inside. It’s unclear how many of the urns had been filled.
