Pocahontas: Don’t Tax You, Don’t Tax Me, Tax That Fella Behind The Tree

She was hounded at the last two debates and relentlessly asked for many moons about her plan for Medicare For All. On Friday, Warren finally sent out smoke signals announcing her long-awaited plan for a government-run health care system.  Warren, speaking with forked tongue, promised “not one penny in middle-class tax increases” is necessary to finance the $20.5 trillion she needs to pay for it.

Her Medicare For All would cost just under $52 trillion over the next ten years and would be covered by increased payroll taxes on employers, financial transactions, the ultra-wealthy living in multi-million-dollar wigwams and large corporations.

Detailed in a 20-page online post, Pocahontas’ unicorn and Skittles plan relies on employers transferring nearly all of what they currently spend on private health insurance for employees to Uncle Sam.

The height of a stack of 52,000,000,000,000 one-dollar bills would reach from the earth to the moon and back 6-and-a-half times or all the way to the planet Saturn and back to Earth three times.  That’s heap big wampum Kimosabe.  If, for some reason, redistributing our beads and blankets falls short of the revenue target, her plan would impose a “Supplemental Employer Medicare Contribution” for big companies with extremely high executive compensation and stock buyback rates.

The 1/1024th Native American acknowledged nearly two million jobs could be lost calling it “part of the cost issue.”  When asked by a reporter in Des Moines “Where do those who are in health insurance go when private insurance is eliminated?” her answer was classic buffalo shit.  “So, if you’ve 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, in auto insurance, in car insurance. Some will work for Medicaid, and there is a five-year transition support for everyone. Because what this is about is how we strengthen America’s middle class and how we make sure that in transitions no one gets left behind. It’s right there in the plan, and it’s fully paid for.”
