Mayor Pete admits to Smoking pot a handful of times; the Democrat establishment is reportedly concerned about the current field of candidates.

CONCORD, N. H. – South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg was on the democratic presidential campaign rival, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. about your “Medicare for all” plan on Wednesday, after the first major candidate to file for the vote in New Hampshire, the first-in-the-nation presidential primary.

Buttigieg, who grabbed headlines in this month’s presidential debate for the demanding Warren about how they will pay for their plan to implement a single-payer health care system, expanded on these concerns on Wednesday.


“I think we all have a responsibility to explain how our plans are, paid for, and my concern about the plan, you is preset is not only the multi-trillion-dollar hole, but also the fact that most Americans would prefer not to be told that you need to give up your private plan,” Buttigieg said in an interview with Fox News and the New Hampshire Concord Monitor newspaper.

“I want to make this public plan, and then if it is the right plan for everyone, and everyone will want it,” Buttigieg added “If you don’t have the right plan for some people, then some people keep what. I think this is the best policy. It is what the majority of voters, is also what the majority of Democratic voters, believe is definitely. And I don’t think these voters are wrong.”

Warren supports the 2020’s rival, Bernie Sanders’ Medicare-for-all plan. Sanders has repeatedly confirmed that taxes for most Americans would rise to pay for the program, but has claimed that most people would save money in the long run by the elimination of premiums, co-payments and deductibles. This month the debate, Warren would not say that if the middle class would increase the taxes to pay for their Medicare-for-all system and reveal promised their plan for paying for it soon.

Warren is also back fire on Buttigieg on the debate stage, criticism of his health care plan as “Medicare for all, which it can afford.”

Warren repeated her debate promises during the election campaign in New Hampshire on Tuesday night, told reporters: “I’m going to have a plan that is coming out soon, the both, how much the Medicare-for-all cost and how it is we are going to pay for it. It’s coming soon.”

In an interview with reporters on Wednesday, according to the filing on the New Hampshire State House, Buttigieg is a clear contrast between himself and Warren, and Sanders, the two populist standard-bearer painted in the large field of Democratic White house hopefuls.

“If you have decided as a voter, you want the ideological left candidate possible, then of course, you already have your choice,” he said, took an indirect jab at both Warren and Sanders. “But I think many others are on the search for real, progressive solutions that can be achieved, and that can command the support of a strong American majority. I think this is where the majority of Democratic voters are.”

And he vowed that if he won the White house, “I would be the most progressive President in my life, but I would also build majorities to do these things in a way that actually unify rather than further polarize the American people.”


Buttigieg arrived in the granite state, a day after a new survey from the University of New Hampshire for CNN, you set the one-time long-shot for the nomination in the fourth place among likely primaries voters, with 10 percent. In front of him Sanders were, I-Vt., at 21 percent, Warren at 18 percent, and former Vice-President Joe Biden at 15 percent.

The 37-year-old candidate, the youngest in the Democratic field, appeared the question of Biden’s readiness.

“To win, we must, to lead us to a candidate who can demonstrate the willingness of this country to move forward. We’re going to have to turn the page. And it is not as easy as normal again. We really have to build a new normality” Buttigieg told Fox News.

“I will also say, when it comes to electability, every single time, when my party won the presidency in the last 50 years, it was with a candidate who was new on the national scene, spent a lot of time in Washington and represents a new generation of leadership By contrast, every time in the last 50 years, we have proposed that the most Washington-oriented candidates, we have to briefly come in November,” he added.

Hours in front of Buttigieg arrived in Concord, a new survey from Politico and Morning-Consult suggested that 37 percent of registered voters said they were either definitely or probably not ready for a President who is gay.

Buttigieg, who would said, the country’s first openly gay President, if he is elected: “I think the biggest thing on the minds of voters, whether they are paid enough, if they are going to be able to health care, as you go, to stand, to save for retirement.”

And he stressed that “serve” answers for such pocketbook concerns, “I think this is, as we have proven from the past, a lot of old prejudices, such as America, once again, to move the situation forward and not back on these problems.”

Buttigieg already has a way with TV advertising in Iowa, the first votes in the presidential primary and caucus nomination calendar. When asked if he’s going to go up on the airwaves in the Granite State, Buttigieg promised that, “you will see a lot of us here in New Hampshire, both in terms of our obligations with capital equipment, our large and growing floor game, and the use of my time. Because I think that New Hampshire is the state that will catapult really me in the direction of success in the nomination.”


Asked where he needs to be in New Hampshire, the candidate said: “I’m not going to set up the poles just yet.”
