Default The Land Mine that Just Got Laid for Elizabeth Warren

First of 2 threads focusing on underreported but significant problematic positions coming out of the Democrat nomination debates.

Quote:
On several occasions in Wednesday night's Democratic debate, the NBC moderators invited candidates to take a shot at Senator Elizabeth Warren, and neither of her fellow senators, Amy Klobuchar or Cory Booker, took the bait. But one candidate may have planted a land mine under her candidacy—and she wasn't even his target.

The moment came when the ten participants were asked, by a show of hands, who would dispense entirely with private health insurance. Only New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and Warren signaled “yes.”
Oops, Warren let the cat out of the bag. But only one of the minor candidates, John Delaney, had the courage to point out what she had done.

Quote:
After pushing back on the idea of taking something away from Americans that most are reasonably happy with, Delaney said this:

"Also it’s bad policy. If you go to every hospital in this country and you ask them one question, which is how would it have been for you last year if every one of your bills were paid at the Medicare rate? Every single hospital administrator said they would close. And the Medicare for All bill requires payments to stay at current Medicare rates. So to some extent we're basically supporting a bill that will have every hospital closed." And then he finished with a stinger about his electrician father on union health insurance: "He’d look at me, and he’d say 'Good job, John, for getting healthcare for every American, but why are you taking my healthcare away?' ”
Delaney points out the dirty secret of Medicare for All. It's not going to happen if private insurance is allowed to continue reimbursements at above Medicare rates. Warren just admitted the obvious. It will make a terrific attack ad.
