Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From News.yahoo.com: “Following debate criticism, Elizabeth Warren will outline how to pay for 'Medicare for All' plan”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

INDIANOLA, Iowa — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren said she is planning to release information soon that outlines how she will pay for her "Medicare for All" plan.

The issue has followed the Massachusetts senator in at least two Democratic presidential debates as she has declined to say whether taxes will go up to pay for her proposal, which would abolish private health insurance in favor of Medicare for every American.

"Right now, the cost estimates on Medicare for All vary by trillions and trillions of dollars. And the different revenue streams for how to fund it — there are a lot of them," she said to a crowd of about 475 at Simpson College. "So this is something I’ve been working on for months and months and it’s got just a little more work until it's finished."

Warren is a cosponsor of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders' Medicare for All plan, introduced in the Senate more than two years ago. The senator from Vermont has said taxes will go up to pay for his plan, but all out-of-pocket expenses like co-pays, premiums and deductibles would be eliminated.

While Warren has been known to release robust policies and plans that details ways to pay for them, she has yet to outline how she’d pay for her public health care program.
