During my recent trip to D.C., I had a chance to sit down for an interview with Cabot Phillips of Campus Reform, which is part of The Leadership Institute. The topic was Elizabeth Warren, focusing on her Medicare-for-all plan, as well as her Native American problem and electoral prospects. From the Campus Reform write up, EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Cornell prof rips Elizabeth Warren's 'Medicare for all' plan to shreds:

Elizabeth Warren has been catching flak from her fellow Democrat presidential candidates over her refusal to say how she will pay for her $30 trillion plus Medicare for All plan. In contrast to Bernie, who is honest enough to say he'll raise taxes including on the middle class (though even that won't raise enough revenue), Warren has employed the same strategy she use when caught falsely claiming to be Native American: Deflect and delay.

2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) will still not admit the middle class will see higher taxes with Medicare for All. Warren's arrogance overflows on this subject even after two opponents called her out on the national stage on Tuesday. Instead, Warren has decided to review "the revenue options suggested by the 2016 Bernie [Sanders] campaign along with other revenue options.

For months, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has tap-danced around the issue of whether or not her Medicare for All plan would raise taxes on the middle class. She's sidestepped the question when asked about it at debates and she's refused to directly address the issue when asked about it during post-debate interviews.

Health care took center stage at the Democratic debate on Tuesday night. The loudest voices, mainly Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, yelled for Medicare for All while demonizing private insurance companies. A few of the other candidates attempted to remind them that private insurance has satisfied many people. Warren and Sanders refused to listen, but David Axelrod, a former advisor to President Barack Obama, cautioned the Democrats that most people oppose Medicare for All along with a few other radical talking points.
