Scarborough: Republicans Are Right: There Are Not Enough Taxes to Make Medicare For All Work

“There aren’t enough taxes out there… to actually keep Medicare going over the next 20, 25 years,” Scarborough explained.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough pointed out that Republicans are correct when they say there isn’t enough money to pay for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ Medicare for All program.

“There are not enough taxes to be levied against the top 1 percent or the top 10 percent that would fund ‘Medicare for All,'” Scarborough said during a segment about Republican members of Congress attending town halls on Tuesday.

Scarborough played a clip of Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows getting heckled at a town hall for telling constituents that Democrats’ proposal of Medicare for All is not feasible.

“Regardless of what you think of the chairman of the Freedom Caucus and his political views, he’s exactly correct,” Scarborough declared after the clip of Meadows played.

Scarborough continued, “there are not enough taxes to be levied against the top 1% or the top 10% that would fund Medicare for all.”

“Further more, there aren’t enough taxes out there to raise to actually keep Medicare going over the next 20, 25 years. We are in a deep hole of debt,” Scarborough concluded. “Just saying hey, let’s just raise taxes more, the numbers don’t add up. They just don’t add up. Ask the CBO. Ask, you can ask any debt committee.”
