Joe Biden went off on Elizabeth Warren’s “ridiculous” healthcare plan, and accused the Massachusetts senator — as well as Bernie Sanders — of “playing Trump’s game and trying to con the American people,” Mediaite reports.
Said Biden: “It’s fascinating that the person who has a plan for everything has no plan for the single most consequential issue in this election in the minds of the American people, across the board.”
He added: “I mean, look, I don’t want to pick on Elizabeth Warren, but this is ridiculous. The idea that someone is going to be able to go out and spend what turns out to be, if you add on everything that’s going to be free beyond Obamacare, excuse me beyond Medicare for All, which is it’s going to come out to about 3.4 trillion dollars a year. That’s bigger than the entire federal budget. Every single thing. And on top of that, a wealth tax. Well the wealth tax, once you get to 27 trillion over time, whatever the number is, it doesn’t even get close to paying for any of this.”
More: “And God love Bernie, and it was really good, I really mean it, to see him so healthy and moving last night, I really mean that… But Bernie, Bernie doesn’t pay for half his plan.”Save to Favorites
