Democrats give Warren's "Medicare for All" plan the cold shoulder

Warren’s ‘Medicare for All’ plan is 100 percent fairy dust

Warren’s ‘Medicare for All’ plan is 100 percent fairy dust

"I've heard and you've heard too from an bad lot of Democrats who are running for the Senate, the House and governors, they think that if we go with some of the other more interesting plans that have been put forward, that they may not be able to win their elections", Biden said during a video-conference fundraiser.

"No, I wouldn't; I've said consistently that I am not for Medicare for All", said Sen.

Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) said "not as I understand it" when asked if he would vote for Warren's plan... Ben Cardin (D-Md.) doubted it would come up for a vote at all.

Without naming her, Biden says the knock by "one of my opponents" was "condescending" and "representative of an elitism that working and middle class people do not share: 'We know best; you know nothing'". Biden favors building on the existing system by adding a public option to Obamacare.
