Wow, That Didn't Take Long: Harris Flips on Medicare for All

4k views

It didn’t take long, but Kamala Harris, who had a harrowing performance in last night’s debate, is already backpedaling on Medicare for All. 

Last night, Lester Holt asked candidates onstage the same question he asked of the previous group: “Who here would abolish their private health insurance in favor of a government-run plan?”

A simple question which everyone seemingly understood, with only Kamala Harris and Bernie Sanders raising their hands.

Well, this morning on CBS, Harris claimed to have misunderstood the question,  asserting that she had thought it was in regards to getting rid of her own, personal insurance. 

Because the word abolish didn’t make the question clear enough.

"Under Medicare for all policy, private insurance [would] certainly exist and, um, for supplemental coverage,” Harris said.

Since the media is currently fawning over Harris, don’t expect anyone to press her on this sudden change of heart.
