In the wee hours of Wednesday morning following the first night of the Democratic presidential primary debates on CNN, both the hosting network and MSNBC offered serious push back against far-left candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA) over the cost of her version of Medicare-for-all.
CNN host Anderson Cooper pressed Warren on what her ideas would cost people, particularly union workers, who liked their health insurance. Meanwhile, MSNBC host Chris Matthews absolutely grilled the Senator about how much taxes would need to go up to pay for it all and her refusal to answer the question (we know, we were shocked too).
Sparks were flying almost from the beginning of Matthew’s questioning after he pointed out that she and Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) were offering voters the moon when it came to healthcare. “There will have to be more money or your pay [outs] won’t go up. You guys dodged that tonight,” he declared.
That kicked off a heated back and forth that lasted over two minutes.
