Warren keeps refusing Repugnantan framing
She was asked again in the recent debate if Medicare For All would raise taxes. And again she instead framed it as costs would be lowered for all but the richest Americans, which is true. Yes, MFA will incur a slight increase in personal taxes for the working class, but overall worker costs will go down without insurance premiums, co-pays, deductibles etc. The Repugs just want the frame that those evil taxes will go up while completely ignoring that overall costs will go down. And Warren wisely refuses to play their game and sticks to effective progressive framing.
