Warren says voters should expect to see the specifics of her plan soon.

"It will talk about two things, both how much Medicare For All will cost, and how we can pay for it," Warren says. "So, it's hard, it's something I've been working on for a long time, but I'll have a plan for it soon. 

Warren did not directly answer a question about whether taxes would go up for middle-class families under Medicare For All. She says she would not sign legislation if overall costs for middle-class families go up.
