2020 democratic presidential contender and Senator Kamala Harris voiced support for the elimination of the private health insurance industry during a CNN town hall event in Iowa Monday night, implying in her comments that the system’s treatment of patients from a less advantaged socioeconomic backgound was “inhumane.” In doing so, Harris effectively ENSURED that she will never become President of the United States.
Here’s what Senator Harris had to say:
“I believe the solution – and I actually feel very strongly about this – is that we need to have Medicare for all,” Harris said in her comments. “That’s just the bottom line.”
“So for people out there who like their insurance, they don’t get to keep it?” Harris was asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper.
“Well, listen, the idea is that everyone gets access to medical care, and you don’t have to go through the process of going through an insurance company, having them give you approval, going through the paperwork, all of the delay that may require,” Harris said.
“Who of us has not had that situation where you’ve got to wait for approval, and the doctor says, well, I don’t know if your insurance company is going to cover this. Let’s eliminate all of that. Let’s move on,” Harris concluded.
Observe the comments from Harris for yourself, in full living color:
WIBC host Tony Katz covered Kamala Harris’ full comments and offered his response during Monday’s radio program.
“Well, okay. So she’s not interested in being President of the United States in terms of the citizens of the United States, she’s interested in being some kind of globalist world president. Okay, best of luck with that. It’s not what we elect [in the United States], but best of luck.”
