In new health care stance, Warren says Obamacare isn't enough

Elizabeth Warren

She said former President Barack Obama tried to use a more conservative model when writing the Affordable Care Act, but she told The Wall Street Journal Tuesday that Democrats should push for a health care plan similar to Canada and the United Kingdom.

While the city of Lowell voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, Trump carried four of the five other towns in the area.

"We talk about how the middle class has just taken one punch after another for almost 40 years now". Warren also called out Democrats, saying, "Now it's time for the next step". "Understand that Donald Trump and these Republican majorities are poised to deliver the knockout blow".

During a stop in Omaha Friday morning, the senator said, "I'm suggesting to President Trump and he has now embraced this morning the proposal that we should vote on that old repeal bill again but we should do one really important thing to it - we should put in place a one year delay before it would be effective". "And the next step is single-payer".

Two CRPF jawans injured in Srinagar attack
Some TV channels are reporting the killing of two militants but police said they can not confirm it immediately. He, however, said they had to use whatever force to kill the militants and end their resistance.

Warren, according to the Seattle Times, has been pushing the party to become more progressive, asking they the Democrats begin to start pushing big government ideas such as a minimum wage, regulating the financial industry, forgiving student loans and expanding Social Security. Warren is urging Democrats to campaign on a single-payer system for the midterm elections in 2018. "It is not in distracting us from the focus of stopping what they are doing to let people die", Pelosi said. "If we're going to fail at that, we should separate the two".

Senator Elizabeth Warren has had her fair share of progressive accolades and criticisms; she is incredible when it comes to standing up to banking giants and wall street, but when it comes to standing up for social issues like Standing Rocks, she has been disappointingly silent.

In New York, another state working on a single-payer plan, Assemblyman Richard Gottfried pointed to mounting opposition to the GOP's Senate plan in Washington as potentially being the catalyst needed to ignite single-payer schemes.

Republican politicians in MA have set up a super PAC aimed at preventing Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren from being reelected in 2018 and scuppering a possible presidential run in 2020.
