Presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) says she will soon be revealing her plan to fund her universal health care plan known as “Medicare for All.”

Warren has received criticism from across the political spectrum about her plan since she started pushing Medicare for All and has yet to explain how the massive initiative will be funded. In last week’s debate, Warren persistently dodged the question by further explaining why she believes Medicare for All is needed.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who also wants Medicare for All, was quick to admit that it would be a significant tax increase, although said this increase would be offset in other savings.

Warren alluded to her plan at a town hall meeting in Indianola, Iowa.

“The cheapest possible way to make sure that everyone gets health care is Medicare-for-all,” Warren said. “What I see, though, is, we need to talk about costs.”

She continued to say her strategy will be developed within the “next few weeks.”
