WASHINGTON — Elizabeth Warren has a plan for that. But on health care, she’s with Bernie.

Warren has stood out in the 2020 Democratic presidential race for her extraordinary focus on detailed plans for on a wide range of issues. Her website lists specific policies on 43 topics: gun violence, Social Security, the Electoral College and even family farmers.

But on the issue that matters most to many voters — health care — Warren is all in on her opponent Bernie Sanders’ “Medicare for All” plan. The seeming inconsistency was exposed during Thursday’s presidential debate by Democratic front-runner Joe Biden.

Health care is a delicate issue for Warren and her party. The Massachusetts senator’s allies believe there’s no incentive to complicate the debate by creating a new plan.
