    On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” 2020 presidential candidate South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) stated that fellow 2020 candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has been “extremely evasive” on whether her Medicare for all plan will raise taxes for the middle class. Buttigieg said, “Senator Warren is known for being straightforward, and was extremely evasive when asked that question, and we’ve seen that repeatedly. I think that if you are proud of your plan and it’s the right plan, you should defend it in straightforward terms. And I think it’s puzzling that when everybody knows the answer to that...
  • The Colbert Report on Elizabeth Warren: When will she disclose the tax hikes on average Americans?

    This is a dangerous time for comedians who make inappropriate remarks, putting Stephen Colbert in an especially precarious position. On Tuesday Mr. Colbert welcomed presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass) to his “Late Night” television program on CBS. Mr. Colbert then engaged in a conversation which many journalists find deeply offensive when he pressed their favorite “ideas candidate” to explain how taxpayers will bear the cost of her ideas. After a pleasant several minutes of discussion Mr. Colbert told the senator that the “most radical thing that you’re proposing is Medicare for All.” The comedian then continued where friendly...

    Poor John Delaney. If he weren’t a bald, middle-aged, straight-white-male centi-millionaire who used to be a congressman from Maryland, he might be getting some real traction in the moderate lane of the Democratic primary. On night one of the second Democatic debate, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren were the only candidates on stage polling in the double digits, essentially tied nationally for second place. But rather than spar with one another, they banded together to fend off criticism from the other candidates, who tried to distinguish themselves as more moderate and more electable than Sanders, the self-described socialist, and Warren,...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper to discuss an array of issues. One of the topics that came up was Medicare For All.Tapper played a clip of former Vice President Joe Biden in Michigan talking about how it's impossible to implement Medicare For All without raising the taxes on the middle class."Well, I find that people say they're for Medicare For All but they're not going to tax the middle class because we don't need to do that. Come on," Biden said. "What is this, a fantasy world here?"Sanders finally admitted what...

    Medicare for All”. Who can argue with that? No more struggles with medical care. No more worries about cost or insurance. You simply go to the doctor … and it’s free. Why SHOULD you have to worry about money? There are so many fallacies here. One you will hear little about in the coming presidential campaign: the rights of doctors. Also the rights of nurses, and all the allied health care professionals. Kamala Harris — the last I checked — was the new front runner for the Democratic Party, at least according to the media. A few weeks back, Harris...

    Did Democrats learn a lesson about attacking the Hyde Amendment in 2016? A new press from conservative states to restrict abortion has led at least one Democratic presidential candidate to repeat that strategy. Elizabeth Warren declared today that abortions should get direct federal funding and that Congress should pass “federal statutory rights” to abortion on demand.You know what would come in handy for that? Medicare for all: “These extremist Republican lawmakers know what the law is — but they don’t care,” Warren wrote. “They want to turn back the clock, outlaw abortion and deny women access to reproductive health...

    I give Bernie Sanders a lot of credit for being honest about his political beliefs and intentions. Not only is he openly socialist, he also is open about his desire to stick it to taxpayers to pay for his dreams. Best of all, his honesty can be used against all the other Dems running for president supporting Medicare for all.   Yesterday, in a TV interview in Iowa, he admitted that Medicare for all would not onlyend private insurance, but that people would pay higher taxes to pay for it. Here is a two-munute video from Channel 8 in...

    With Sen. Bernie Sanders introducing a new “Medicare for All” bill this month and several other Democratic presidential candidates co-sponsoring it, health care is once again a top campaign issue. The Democratic Party’s Socialist wing has hijacked the health care debate, and a closer examination of Medicare for All reveals its grim prognosis.This plan is co-sponsored by four other senators running for president: Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Cory Booker. It represents a radical change in how Americans pay for and receive health care. Medicare for All ends private health care insurance, granting the federal government total control....
  • Single-payer Will Fracture Democrats' 2020 Coalition

    This week, Senator Bernie Sanders released a new version of his plan for "Medicare for All." Four of his competitors for the Democratic presidential nomination -- Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and Cory Booker -- quickly signed on as co-sponsors. They all think Medicare for All is their ticket to the nomination, and ultimately the White House. It's not hard to see why. A recent Reuters survey found that 85 percent of Democrats, and even a slim majority of Republicans, are on board with a single-payer system. But public support for single-payer isn't as solid as it seems. Medicare...

    A University of Colorado professor who once compared some Sept. 11 victims to a Nazi could learn within three weeks whether he can return to the classroom — or whether the university will pursue sanctions including dismissal. University President Hank Brown received a report Tuesday from a faculty committee regarding its hearing on alleged research misconduct by ethnic studies professor Ward Churchill. Brown has 15 business days to determine how to proceed, the university said. If Brown decides the are no grounds for dismissal, he could return Churchill to the classroom and close the case, or he could recommend sanctions...

    Embattled Colorado Professor Files Complaint Against Texas Detractor The Associated Press Published: Jun 9, 2005 BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill, whose essay comparing some Sept. 11 victims to Nazis led to an investigation into his scholarship and ethnicity, has filed a complaint against one of his accusers. Churchill's complaint to Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, accuses assistant sociology professor Thomas Brown of academic misconduct. Brown has alleged Churchill fabricated crucial details in his argument that the Army committed genocide against Indians in the 1800s. In an e-mail to The Denver Post Wednesday, Brown said Churchill...

His attorney, David Lane, said a response of more than 50 pages, single-spaced, was delivered to a committee representative Monday afternoon.

    By Charlie Brennan, Rocky Mountain News March 16, 2005 University of Colorado investigators are looking into a letter sent last summer by professor Ward Churchill to his late wife's mother. Rhonda Kelly, 41, the sister of Leah Kelly, Churchill's late wife, said she turned over the letter to CU lawyer Louise Romero, who is working on a university investigation being led by interim Chancellor Phil DiStefano. Initially expected to be done this week, DiStefano's report - which will help CU officials decide if there is cause to fire the tenured Churchill - has been pushed back to March 28. Churchill...

    Post columnist nearly alone in probing 'dysfunctional' milieu. For all the ink devoted to the Ward Churchill case, the Denver dailies have done virtually nothing to investigate the dysfunctional campus academic culture which led to the Churchill fiasco. Here are some of the questions the Denver media have not even attempted to probe: Why did the University of Colorado Arts and Sciences administration continue to promote and laud Churchill after the late-1990s publication of professor Thomas LaVelle's articles alleging extensive academic fraud and plagiarism on Churchill's part? Are there other academic frauds and plagiarists at CU whom the administration has...

    "Who is defending Ward Churchill, may I ask?" That was the question posed by John Holbo, a philosophy professor and contributor to the leftwing academic blog Crooked Timber, when news broke that the University of Colorado was harboring a leftist extremist in its midst. The gist of Holbo’s question was that no respectable person on the Left could come to the defense of someone so demonstrably in leave of his senses as the former Weatherman accomplice, academic fraud, and faux-Indian. One can only hope that the professor’s academic acumen is better than his news judgment. In fact, no sooner had...

Churchill, whose integrity has been challenged since news broke earlier last month of his paper blaming victims of 9-11 for the attacks, made an Indian-theme serigraph in 1981 called "Winter Attack" and printed 150 copies. But one of the buyers,...

    Like a high mountain road posted with danger signs, Ward Churchill's career has been marked by repeated warnings to University of Colorado officials that there could be serious trouble ahead. CU has been contacted a number of times over the past 20 years by prominent figures within the American Indian community who have raised questions about Churchill's truthfulness, his scholarship and his ethnicity. Churchill responded Wednesday night that CU had conducted thorough investigations of each complaint over the years. "I came out as clean as a hound's tooth," he said. David Bradley, a Santa Fe-area American Indian artist whose feud...

    Churchill Art Piece Called Into Question by CBS4 News reporter Raj Chohan Feb 24, 2005 8:03 pm US/Mountain BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) Boulder County resident Duke Prentup has been a fan of native American art for as long as he can remember. That love of art took him to the home of Ward Churchill in the early 1980's, where Prentup bought several pieces of Churchill's art, including a serigraph titled "Winter Attack." "I have enjoyed them ever since immensely, they're obviously up inside my house," Prentup said. Last month came a stunning revelation, though, as as Prentup flipped through a 1972...
