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!

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…
