I never thought I’d see someone on CNN grill a progressive on “where will you get the money…” I guess pigs really do fly.
Is he trying to bribe the country with the promise of free healthcare & college?
CNN’s Dana Bash asks Andrew Gillum how he’ll pay for his $33 Trillion health care plan. Here are his answers in order:
The plan will save trillions.
Florida can’t do it alone.
Taxes won’t be raised.
We can help 700,000 people.
I had a rough childhood.
Trump/DeSantis to blame -I’ll raise taxes.
“A study earlier this summer from George Mason University estimates that Medicare for all, that plan, would cost the government $33 trillion — with a T — dollars over the next decade, which obviously would require a significant tax increase,” Bash said. “Are you ready to tell the people of Florida that they need to pay a lot more in taxes to fund your health care plan?”
Gillum struggled mightily in responding to Bash’s question as he tried to deflect from answering the question, saying that the $33 trillion health care program could save the government money. More

Another Democrat trying to scam people on the idea that he will give them free healthcare without any cost to them. Don’t fall for it Florida, there’s no such thing as a free lunch. If you put this liar into office, he wil bleed you dry.

He has to ask Soros to answer that question- that 15 year relationship and all.

Raise taxes on corporations will impact wage growth
By saying he can’t do it on their own, he’s suggesting Federal assistance- which comes from tax dollars or borrowing.
In other words, his plan depends on OPM

When you believe the government is more important than the people, this is the kind of nonsense you will say publicly. The government does not have the right to your money, the money is ours and we ALLOW the government to tax us.
