Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren was apparently stumped by a question given to her by late night comedian Steven Colbert on her health care plan. As Fox News reports:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., faced an unexpected grilling from “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert on whether or not the middle class will face a tax hike to fund Medicare-for-all…
“But will their taxes go up?” Colbert pressed.
“But, here’s the thing,” Warren said.
“But, here’s the thing,” Colbert grinningly interrupted. “I’ve listened to these answers a few times before and I just want to make a parallel suggestion to you that you might defend the taxes perhaps that you’re not mentioning in your sentence.”

It seems obvious that Warren has no idea how to actually pay for her absurd socialist schemes. Even ultra-liberals like Steven Colbert aren’t buying it.
