2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Cory Booker doubled-down on his calls for a universal healthcare scheme throughout the United States Monday; saying a ‘Medicare for All’ system would actually save taxpayers money over the next decade.
Booker was speaking with CBS News when he was asked how he planned to finance a massive expansion of the Medicare system and whether Democrats were “being honest” with Americans.
“How much would ‘Medicare for all’ cost?” asked host Norah O’Donnell. “Just quickly, just so that people know how much it would cost?”
“Even the CBO says if you lower Medicare to allow 50-year-olds to get into it, you can not only save the government money, but you can lower premiums for all Americans,” Booker said. “This is the thing. We’re not talking directly to issues that can expand access to care and create affordability,” said Booker.
BOOKER BACKLASH: RNC Chair RIPS ‘Pathetic’ Cory Over Kavanaugh Hearings
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel unloaded on Sen. Cory Booker Tuesday, slamming the New Jersey legislator for using “crocodile tears” to fundraise off President Trump’s pick to join the Supreme Court.
McDaniel blasted Booker hours after Brett Kavanaugh arrived at the US Capitol to kick-start his Senate confirmation process; saying the left-wing lawmaker was using the public hearings to raise funds for his campaign.
“Cory Booker is using his crocodile tears as a ploy to raise money. It’s pathetic,” she tweeted.

BOOKER GOES NUCLEAR: Cory Compares DHS Secretary to NAZIS, Trump to HITLER
New Jersey Senator Cory Booker continued his non-stop rampage against President Trump’s “tough talk” on immigration reform on Friday, breathlessly claiming DHS Secretary Nielsen was enabling Trump’s “racism,” adding “we know what happened in Europe” when leaders acted this way.
Booker was speaking with “The Breakfast Club” radio program when he was asked to comment on his recent rant against Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, where he “cried tears of rage” and labeled the DHS boss as “complicit” in Trump’s “racism.”
“People who stood by and did nothing when they hear bigotry are complicit in that bigotry. We know this from history and we know this from recent experiences in our communities, and it’s outrageous to see it in the highest office in the land,” said Booker.
“I don’t care who you are […] If you come after Jews, if you come after Muslims, if you come after Haitians, El Salvadorians, come after my fellow American citizens, I will not tolerate it,” he added.
“She should be the same way as opposed to just doing her job. We know what happened in Europe when people just did their jobs,” said the Senator.
