 Senator Elizabeth Warren has many legislative plans. However, there is no concrete plan. She has been very vague on the answer to how we are going to pay for these plans. As voters, we deserve honest answers to these questions. Are you going to raise income tax on the middle- class? How are you going to pay for medicare for all?  How are you going to forgive student-loans? Who is going to pay for these ideas that sound good?

She did even understand the Amazon deal. She only has speaking points.

I find it amusing that one talking point of Republicans is that "she lied about her heritage" and are all concerned about that.  It's a weak point considering the  President lies so frequently. 

I do agree that she's vague about the cost of her bold agenda and is falling at best into the "tax and spend" reputation of they give Democrats and the new call that Democrats are Socialists.  

She can't do her plan without heavy taxation.  What is that plan?  There's only so much taxation she's going to get the rich and  powerful to hand up.  I'm also concerned of the taxes on the working class that aren't on the lower ends of working class or poor, but making enough to have some disposal income to stimulate the economy, like working couples like say a nurse married to an accountant or doctor.  They aren't poor but they aren't rich.  Our burden is already heavy.

Yes, the very fact she lied about her race is huge when there are multitudes of people that face discrimination every second of every day. She knew it was a lie and did not stop there; she perpetuated this lie and even accepted a position at Harvard University. A position that should have gone to a real minority. However, what makes me uncomfortable is she came out as a typical politician and said after "deep reflection," how did she reflect when she was outed.

Thank you for agreeing with me on how is she going to pay for her plan without increasing the taxes. What is she going to cut? Senator Elizabeth Warran is a "speaking point" candidate. There is no real depth once you start to look into her "speaking point " because she knows she can not state the only way my plan works is by increasing taxes.

I'm over the whole Native American thing.  Technically, she does have some Native American heritage as proven by DNA, but I do think she exploited it a bit.  The fact that Republicans won't let this go considering how their leader is a pathological liar is laughable.

I like her.  I think she's one of the smartest of the candidates and I like her ideals and values.  I would like to see a more concrete plan on how to make her goals a reality.  I won't mind paying more in taxes if I pay less for health insurance.  I'd much prefer to pay more in taxes for things that do help the greater good, instead of golf trips, unnecessary border walls, and wars.

One model that I have seen for Medicare for All is using the premiums we and employers pay now. Stardardizing the reimbursement process and eliminating paying stockholder dividends and 10s of millions of salary for CEOs would go a long way to cut costs. 

You may say Warren's  plan is unrealistic, but so is continuing on with the mishmash of healthcare funding that we have now. People are dying because they can't afford insulin. 

And I am over the whole heritage thing as well. Trump makes all sorts of lies about his heritage.

I am not over the "Native American Thing." It is not a thing it was rude inconsiderate, ignorant, offensive, and RACIST. Yes, racist (prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior)the hundred of years of slavery and oppression to Native American, African- American, and Jewish Americans and other minorities in this country.  No one is really holding her accountable for her offensive, demonstrative, egotistical self-sabotaging attitude. Unfortunately, she did not think much of these minorities nor the struggle to try to live the "American Dream" President Donald Trump is just as wrong. Senator Elizabeth Warran reminds me of that the nurse who is friendly that never get there work done and leaves a lot of work for the next shift. One better she is the nurse that gives the enema and stool softeners right before the next shift, and the medication was ordered since they arrived on shift, but they wait until the next shift comes to the hospital.

Do you really want the tax to increase?

Yes, okay, let's get rid of the CEO salary. It still enough to pay for Medicare for all. The plan is not as a mismatch as you think. Who read the Affordable Care Act? It has some outstanding parts. Some sections need to be changed. I want to know which candidate for President that read the Affordable Care Act? Who is going to pay for medicare for all?  I do agree thing has to change, but that is up to Congress to hold Big pharmacy accountable for the Monopoly laws.
