Massachusetts Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren made some big promises about her Medicare for All “transition plan,” but when that plan arrived Friday, those promises turned out to be lies.
Senator Warren’s national poll numbers have been in decline since people began pressing her for details on how she would fund Medicare for All, and she responded by releasing a funding plan two weeks ago. That plan included the promise of another plan — a “transition” plan — that Warren has been promising would include some pretty major items.
One of those promises was a plan for the 2 million jobs that Warren concedes will be eliminated by Medicare for All. In fact, two weeks ago, she erroneously claimed that she had already released a plan covering those displaced works, including a funding mechanism for “five-year transition support for everyone.”
Warren was campaigning in Iowa, and was asked where those 2 million people “go when private health insurance is eliminated?”
“So if you had a chance to read the plan, you’ll see, no one gets left behind. Some of the people currently working in health insurance will work in other parts of insurance, in life insurance and auto insurance, in car insurance. Some will work for Medicaid,” Warren replied, and went on to add “And there is a 5-year transition support for everyone. It’s right there in the plan, and it’s fully paid for.”
