Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren released details of her Medicare for All plan on Friday. The plan says she would raise investment gains taxes on the top 1% of American households in order to help pay for the program, which calls for $20.5 trillion in federal spending over a decade. She would also levy a 6% annual tax on net worth above $1 billion and collect about $9 trillion from employers. In response, presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders called his plan to fund Medicare for All more progressive and said he worried that Warren’s plan could have a negative impact on job creation.
