Sen. Elizabeth Warren has crafted a reputation on the presidential campaign trail as the candidate with a plan for just about everything. After receiving some criticism for not being up front about how she would pay for a Medicare for All health care policy, last week Warren published a detailed planto fund it, in which she claims to have honored her commitment to not raise taxes on the middle class.

Charlie Chieppo, principal of Chieppo Strategies, joined Shannon O'Brien, former state treasurer, on Boston Public Radio Monday to break down the political pros and cons of Warren's plan.

"There are some holes, there are some assumptions that may or may not hold water, but the fact is I think she's put together a solid plan, one that does attempt to cover everyone in the country. It's appealing to progressives," said O'Brien. "Whether or not it takes into account the political divide that makes something like that possibly impossible to pass, it's an important political statement."

Chieppo took a more severe political calculation.

"The best thing one can say about it is that it has no chance of actually becoming reality," he said. "I think to try to cover everything is going to be a disaster ... the reimbursement rates are very low, I think there are so many problems with this, even if you accept these numbers."

Chieppo is principal of Chieppo Strategies, senior fellow at the Pioneer Institute, and adjunct professor at Suffolk University. O'Brien is former state treasurer and Democratic nominee for Governor.
