Elizabeth Warren pitches policies totaling $100 trillion at town hall: estimates

Elizabeth Warren promoted some of her signature proposals at a town hall event Monday night — which, all told, could cost a combined $100 trillion, according to recent estimates.

Sen. Warren, D-Mass., discussed the policies — the Green New Deal, universal child care and slavery reparations — at a CNN town hall event in Jackson, Miss. The 2020 Democratic hopeful told the crowd that the Green New Deal represents a way forward for the country.

“That’s how we build a future. And I’ll add one little piece to it and say when you take a look at the Green New Deal, understand this is about building the infrastructure for the 21st century, for a sustainable world,” Warren said.

“We do these things together because you can’t start a little business and at the same time try to build the road out front of your house. … What’s happened in America is we have cut back on those infrastructure investments. Right now, we are spending about six-tenths of one percent on our infrastructure. China, by comparison, is spending about five percent of its GDP on infrastructure.”
