It's really hard to pick out which part of her plan is most insane?: - Lowering brand drug pricing by 70%? - CMS paying specialists less money - Taxing unrealized capital gains - Claim hiring more IRS agents will raise $2.3 trillion - "Not one penny in middle-class tax increases"

Why is paying specialists less money insane?

Because if you need quality care you need to see a specialist. GP's just don't have the deep knowledge. And not all specialists are raking it in. Maybe the ones that are doing expensive procedures are (orthopedists) but those relying on office visits sure aren't.

It's a tough list, but the last one wins.

That's just run of the mill political lying. It's the rest that has me thinking "is she retarded?"

Taxing unrealized capital is roughly as difficult as a wealth tax. Is probably the most realistic thing here. Is it constitutional? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Not saying taxing unrealized gains is difficult to administer, just that the thought of it is insane and would probably have some major unforeseen consequences (at least to the likes of Warren)

Actually the most ridiculous proposal is the immigration part. I'll just leave that there.
