UPDATE 6-Democrat Warren: Medicare for All would not raise U.S. middle-class taxes 'one penny'NEW YORK/WASHINGTON, Nov 1 (Reuters) – Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren on Friday proposed a $ 20.5 trillion Medicare for All plan that she said would not require raising middle-class taxes “one penny,” answering critics who had attacked her for failing to explain how she would pay for the sweeping healthcare system overhaul. The proposal to remake the U.S. healthcare system will face scrutiny from Warren’s more moderate Democratic opponents, who have questioned Medicare for All’s practicality. Warren’s proposal also 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.
