1. In my opinion, her calculator is too simplistic, just like her MFA proposal.

 

I’m for Universal Coverage and believe a Public Option with hefty subsidies gets us to goal faster than ordered/commanded MFA (as Buttigieg called it tonight).

2. The 'Public Option' on Health Care Is a Poison Pill

 

Some Democratic candidates are pushing it as a free-choice version of Medicare for All. That’s good rhetoric but bad policy.

3. I think MFA is best long term. But if people are so skeptical of it that it will

 

cost us the General Election and put the goal off more years, we’re better off with a Public Option..

I believe trump — or Haley, Romney, etc. — would beat MFA’s proponent in a landslide.

4. As long as Democrats in leadership roles fight against it, that might be possible.

5. They are fighting against it because voters are skeptical. I don't think voters

 

believe Warren can do it at no cost to them, as that “calculator” indicates.

Warren would justifiably call for sanctions if a corporation advertised a product with misleading ads like that calculator.

6. That's not why they're against it.

 

She is not the one misleading voters.
