Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg on Sunday continued to slam 2020 rival Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) for her Medicare for All plan.
"Right now, whether you copy-paste the Bernie Sanders math or do it some other way, there is a hole amounting to trillions of dollars in how this is supposed to work. And the really unfortunate thing is we can deliver health care to every American without that problem," the South Bend, Ind., mayor said on CNN's State of the Union.
Buttigieg went on to say he believes his approach—converting Medicare into a public option—will better address the central problem of Warren's Medicare for All plan: kicking Americans off of their private plans after four years.
Both Buttigieg and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.) slammed Warren's health care plan during the most recent Democratic debate.
"Your signature, senator, is to have a plan for everything. Except this," Buttigieg said. "I don't understand why you believe the only way to deliver affordable coverage to everybody is to obliterate private plans."
