VIDEO: Chris Matthews Takes On Elizabeth Warren, Demands She ‘Answer That Question’

Warren doesn’t get that a nonanswer is still an answer…

So Tuesday night saw yet another wild and wacky Democratic presidential debate, this time hosted by MSNBC’s Chris “Tingle Legs” Matthews.

In one of the more tense exchanges, Matthews asked Sen. Elizabeth Warren about the cost of her “Medicare for All” policy proposal. He asked Warren several times how much the plan would cost the average American taxpayer, but he never really received a clear answer from her.

This clearly left Matthews frustrated, who later took a shot at her by saying, “Warren wouldn’t answer that question.”

“Medicare for All” will cost taxpayers more money, Matthews told Warren. “You guys dodged that tonight. … How much will your taxes go up?”

Warren refused to answer, suggesting the real question is, “How much are your costs going to go up?”

“I know that argument, but you’re covering it,” pressed Matthews.

“‘Medicare for All’ is cheaper than our current system — that’s the Republicans’ version,” Warren said.

“I know the argument,” answered Matthews, “that you put it all together and you reduce the cost of healthcare premiums, and you get more benefits, therefore you come out ahead, but will you pay more in taxes? Why don’t you want to answer that question?”

“It’s a question about where people are gonna come out economically,” contended Warren.

“That’s not my question,” Matthews said. “That’s not my question. That’s not my question. My question is how much will taxes go up.”

Warren, again, refused to answer. “The question is about costs,” she said, about how much you’re “digging in your pocket” to pay healthcare costs.

“Will your taxes go up?” the MSNBC host asked, again. “Will your taxes go up? … There is no answer to the question, will your taxes go up.”

To give you a little insight into how much the overall program would cost, private insurers would go the way of the dinosaur and a whopping $32 trillion is what it would take to cover every single American.

For a little context, that’s currently $10 trillion more than our national debt.

Sounds like an absolutely horrid idea, right? Can you imagine how much or our income would have to be taxed to pay for that? Sure, health care would be paid for, but we’d be virtually unable to pay any of our other bills. Surely, these folks can understand basic math, right?

Of course they can. They just don’t care. They confuse government responsibility with personal responsibility. Plus, they want to stay in power as long as possible, so they promise the moon to their voters, knowing they cannot actually deliver on these promises.

Unfortunately, liberal voters actually think they will and keep voting for them. Time to wake up, folks. There’s no such thing as a free lunch.

Save conservative media!

Democrat Governor Frees 8,000 Inmates Over COVID-19, But Bans Singing In Churches

Priorities?

Once again, the Golden State continues to lead the nation in crazy. Thanks to radically far-left Governor Gavin Newsom, 8,000 prisoners will be freed due to spikes in coronavirus – which most likely stem from increased testing and Black Lives Matter riots, where police officers are treated like animals. Newsom has no problem banning singing in church, though. From KPIX 5: The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) on Friday said it estimates 8,000 currently incarcerated persons could be eligible for release by end of August under release authority granted to the CDCR Secretary allowing alternative confinement or release in any case in which an emergency endangering the lives of incarcerated persons has occurred or is imminent. The 8,000 inmates to be released are in addition to the state’s reduction of about 10,000 inmates since the start of the pandemic. Jay Jordan, the executive director of Californians for Safety and Justice, noted: “We’re glad the Governor is taking action to release more people. This is absolutely critical for the health and safety of every Californian. Too many people are incarcerated for too long in facilities that spread poor health. Supporting the health and safety of all Californians means releasing people unnecessarily incarcerated and transforming our justice system.” Regarding church, via Fox News: Faith leaders are speaking out after California Gov. Gavin Newsom banned singing and chanting in houses of worship last week due to a surge in coronavirus cases following weeks of protests. “Places of worship must, therefore, discontinue singing and chanting activities and limit indoor attendance to 25 percent of building capacity or a maximum of 100 attendees, whichever is lower,” the new guidelines read as state health officials recommend churches have members sing online from their homes.

Roger Stone Will Not Serve Prison Time, Has Sentence Commuted By POTUS Trump

Freedom!

Liberals are going to have a field day with this one. Then again, they generally go bananas for anything and everything “Trump,” so this will just be more gas on the fire. As of late Friday evening, longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone learned that he won’t be serving time in the big house. From Fox News: Tucker Carlson lauded President Trump’s commutation of longtime Republican political consultant Roger Stone’s prison sentence Friday, saying the 67-year-old had been the victim of a “nakedly political” set-up aimed to put him away for the rest of his “useful and expected life.” Stone was to report to prison Tuesday on charges of witness tampering and making false statements in connection to the Mueller investigation of alleged collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. Carlson said, “His arrest and his trial were nakedly political. It was a set-up. The presiding judge, a political activist called Amy Berman Jackson, issued a gag order that prohibited Stone from defending himself in public or making a living. She bankrupted him as a result.” Here’s the letter from the White House: California Congressman Eric Swalwell’s (D) 2020 presidential campaign lasted a solid five minutes. Even he probably knew he didn’t stand a chance. But that hasn’t stopped the radically far-left liberal from saying some very, very silly things. Swalwell knows the lines he’s supposed to parrot and does it well – or, at least, well enough. He’s just not the most likable of characters. In February, the Democrat suggested a new plan his peers might hatch in order to take down the duly-elected president of the United States.
