CNN’s Dana Bash repeatedly pressed Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum on Sunday over his support for a $33 trillion government-run health care system and how he intends to pay for it.
“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.
Not satisfied with Gillum’s response, Bash continued to push him over how he plans to pay for the astronomically-expensive program.
Dana Bash asks Andrew Gillum how he’ll pay for his $33 Trillion health care plan. 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 pic.twitter.com/mbLfhjaekQ
