Democratic primary candidate for the 2020 presidential election and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is going to raise your taxes if she gets into office.
We know this because she’s doing everything in her power to not answer the very simple and direct question as to whether or not she is. What she wants to do instead is give you flowery talk about how “Medicare for all” is going to bring your overall medical costs down, but doesn’t want to talk about the messy business of how she plans to pay for it.
Which is, of course, raising taxes on the middle class.
The Washington Free Beacon put together a pretty nice little supercut of all the times Warren was asked point-blank if she’ll raise taxes on the middle class and you can watch her play a game of dodgeball with the question. Even people like “Hardball” host Chris Matthews seems to get frustrated with Warren’s refusal to address the question directly.
One thing that Warren has firmly established is that a White House with her in the Oval Office is going to cost you a lot of money. Not only is she going to raise taxes to pay for all the “free” stuff she plans on giving away, but she’s also going to come down hard on the businesses as well in order to make those dastardly job providers cough up their “fair share.”
So much so that even big Democrat donors are threatening the DNC that they’ll walk away and sign on with President Donald Trump for his 2020 campaign in the general election if she wins the Democratic primary.
While Warren has momentum within the gaggle of primary candidates, it’s unlikely that she’s going to win a general election against Trump who continuously receives support in the form huge cash donations, packed rallies, and rising poll numbers.
Warren can’t even keep dyed in the wool Democrat donors.
