Elizabeth Warren's adopted "Medicare for All" plan on Thursday, calling her "extremely evasive" when it came to whether or not the proposal calls for raising taxes on the middle class.

Andrew Yang said he would "modify Americans' diets over time" by increasing the price of beef to the point where Americans would buy less meat. Sen. "I think that if you are proud of your plan and it's the right plan, you should defend it in straightforward terms".

Buttigieg says his newly released health care plan would not raise taxes on the middle class. "Middle-class families are going to pay less", she claimed.

Warren outlined her concerns that Americans often go broke over bad medical diagnoses, high premiums, co-pays, and insurance practices such as not covering certain doctors, specialists, treatments, and prescriptions.

The statement said the plan would also expand subsidies for low-income people to pay health insurance premiums, cap premiums at 8.5% of income for everyone, and empower the federal government to challenge healthcare mergers that raise costs.

Warren: So here's how we're going to do this.

"We are going to make the changes that we need in this country", added the senator, "when the working people of America stand up to the corporate elite, not take their money".

Colbert wasn't satisfied, asking Warren again: "But will their taxes go up?"

People familiar with the Warren campaign's efforts say multiple strategists were vetted in recent weeks.

"But, here's the thing", Warren started before Colbert interrupted. "Health care is a total human righteous". Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Sen.

"Costs will go up for billionaires and go up for corporations", Warren said. "How much will your taxes go up?"

"Hospitals, not patients, should bear the responsibility of verifying that their providers are included in their insurance networks, whether for private plans or public programs", reads Buttigieg's plan.

The latest national Fox News poll found Joe Biden leading the Democrats' 2020 field with 29% support, followed by Sanders at 18% and Elizabeth Warren at 16%. Sen. "This is not a sustainable health-care system".

"Isn't Medicare-for-all like public school?"
