Elizabeth Warren Promises To Phase In ‘Medicare For All’ Gradually Through Opt-In Government Healthcare Plan

Published

on

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren spoke on Frida and introduced new plans to phase in her controversial “Medicare for All” proposal, stating she would first try to give folks the option of a government plan rather than looking to end all private plans immediately.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

The plan to transition gradually to government-financed healthcare via an opt-in plan resembles the proposals from rival candidates Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg, who have called for a healthcare “public option” rather than the more radical Medicare for All plan favored by Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders.

In a campaign post, the Massachusetts senator said she would, in her first 100 days as president, introduce legislation to allow Americans to buy into a plan that would offer free coverage to all children and families making at or below 200% the federal poverty rate, or about $50,000 for a family of four. Americans who want government coverage could buy into a plan for a “modest” fee.

She also said she would lower the costs of prescription drugs by cracking down on corruption in the pharmaceutical industry and extending protections for people with preexisting conditions.

By the time Warren would hit her third year in office, she said she would introduce and then fight for the full transition to the Medicare for All system, which would then enroll every person living in the United States into a government insurance plan.

Warren stated, “By this point, the American people will have experienced the full benefits of a true Medicare for All option, and they can see for themselves how that experience stacks up against high-priced care that requires them to fight tooth-and-nail against their insurance company.”

Marco Rubio Gets Confronted By MSNBC Host Over Saying Some Journalists ‘Giddy’ Over COVID-19

Published

Sen. Marco Rubio has found himself in the hot seat with MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle after making the comment that some journalists are thrilled over the spread of the coronavirus, a statement he defended. Ruhle asked Rubio to explain the tweet which he made earlier in the week, noting a portion where he said: “Some in our media can’t contain their glee & delight in reporting that the U.S. has more #CoronaVirus cases than #China…Beyond being grotesque, it’s bad journalism.” https://twitter.com/marcorubio/status/1244279416819273729 Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “I need to ask you this, because I’m a journalist,” Ruhle said. “We’re not just some personalities. You called out journalism. And I need to understand why on earth you did this.” Rubio said some journalists are “doing exactly what I said.” “Well, because there are some journalists that were doing exactly what I said,” the Florida Republican responded. “I read reports about how some Republicans are doing this, or some members of Congress are doing that. I don’t know what other word to describe who’s doing something and who isn’t.” Rubio gave a few examples of certain situations where he believes that journalists expressed happiness in reporting on coronavirus figures and noted that he said “some” not all journalists were behaving this way. https://twitter.com/TPMLiveWire/status/1246081048846401536 Rubio found support among many on the right, including Caleb Hull who tweeted: https://twitter.com/CalebJHull/status/1244311946817671173 The bottom line is, there are probably some journalists who are excited by the prospects that this virus is providing for the progressive movement. After all, Democrats are using this situation to try and pass a bunch of pet projects they want made law through inside these coronavirus relief packages, so is it so far fetched to think liberal journalists might think the same way? Regardless, here’s to hoping this all goes away sooner rather…
