Republicans, Democrats, "SNL" attack Warren's U.S. 'Medicare for All' plan

Republicans, Democrats, "SNL" attack Warren's U.S. 'Medicare for All' planSenator Elizabeth Warren’s $ 20.5 trillion plan to provide healthcare for all Americans was attacked and mocked over the weekend by Democrats, Republicans, and “Saturday Night Live,” the long-running New York comedy show. The 20-page “Medicare for All” plan, which Warren’s 2020 presidential campaign released on Friday, calls for cuts in defense spending and passing immigration reform to increase tax revenue from newly legal Americans, two steps that would face an uphill battle in Congress. Warren’s sweeping healthcare overhaul would replace private health insurance, including employer-sponsored plans, with full government-sponsored coverage, and individuals would no longer have to pay premiums, deductibles, co-pays or other out-of-pocket costs.
