Warren also plans a "targeted cut to a Defense Department slush fund", she said in a Twitter thread Friday morning.

Ms Warren is a Democratic front-runner in the 2020 race to the White House. Since then, pressure mounted on her to deliver the details on funding.

If this system fails to boost $eight.eight trillion, Warren says she'd make up the distinction by imposing a supplemental contribution requirement for giant firms "with extremely high executive compensation and stock buyback rates". That would raise about 40% of the $20.5 trillion over 10 years the Warren campaign estimates will be needed for Medicare for All. "Health care is a human right, and we need a system that reflects our values", the Democratic presidential contender wrote in a 20-page essay outlining her plan that will be published on the website Medium. Economists have estimated Medicare for All's cost at between $13.5tn to $34tn in the same time frame.

The $3.7 trillion that American workers are projected to spend on insurance premiums from 2020 to 2029 would instead be received as wages subject to existing taxes.

-Taxes on Large Corporations: Eliminating current tax law provisions that allow businesses to quickly write off the cost of their investments and instituting a new minimum tax on foreign earnings. "Medicare for All isn't about changing any of that".

"Bernie we can't even pay for Medicare for some, the fund is going to go broke in 2026 and now you want to expand it and what happens?"

What is Medicare-for-All?

The details of Warren's "Medicare for All" plan aim to quell criticism that the Massachusetts Democrat and presidential candidate has been vague about how she would pay for her sweeping proposal. Instead of sending money to private insurance companies, the employers would send the money to the federal government. Friday's proposal makes an attempt to clarify why center class taxes don't have to extend - even when the figures concerned are staggering. An analysis of the plan, compiled by Simon Johnson, the former chief economist of the IMF; Betsy Stevenson, a former chief economist for the Department of Labor; and Mark Zandi, the chief economist of Moody's Analytics, says that Warren's IRS proposals would "would close the overall tax gap by one-third" and "generate an additional $2.3 trillion in revenue after accounting for the increased cost of IRS and other agency enforcement".

One New Hampshire party official, who has yet to endorse, said Warren assured her in a one-on-one conversation that she is a "real Democrat". Here's the headline: My plan won't raise taxes one penny on middle-class families.

Immigration Reform - Supports a pathway to citizenship as well as expanded legal immigration. Elizabeth Warren's proposals to pay for Medicare for All and how they compare to financing options identified by Vermont Sen. The differences between the candidates have led to clashes in recent presidential debates. In the clashes to come she will be better prepared to respond.

"Warren's challenge is more about politics than arithmetic", said Levitt. Toulouse Oliver quickly endorsed her former rival.

Pete Buttigieg told Fox News on Thursday that all the candidates "have a responsibility to explain how our plans are going to be paid for". While Warren pledged that middle-class taxes would not increase to pay for "Medicare for All", given Congress's refusal to pass a regular budget for a decade, the looming debt crisis due to hundreds of trillions in underfunded existing entitlements like Social Security, and decades of record-breaking federal budget deficits, it's a certainty her pledge will turn out to be as reliable as President Obama's "you can keep your doctor".
