Kamala Harris calls for Medicare For All, ‘Let’s eliminate all of’ private insurance

Borrowing from the Bernie Sanders and socialist playbook, 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris called for a radical change to health care on Monday night during a CNN town hall in which she called for a complete government takeover of the industry.

This was the question: “What is your solution to ensure that people have access to quality health care at an affordable price, and does that solution involve cutting insurance companies as we know them out of the equation?”

“I believe the solution — and I actually feel very strongly about this — is that we need to have Medicare for all,” Harris responded. “That’s just the bottom line.”

Harris claimed health care was a “right” and that the current system was “inhumane” to people.

CNN’s Jake Tapper noted that Harris’ stance would “totally eliminate private insurance.”

“So for people out there who like their insurance, they don’t get to keep it?” Tapper asked.

“Let’s eliminate all of that,” Harris responded, saying it’s time to “move on” from the current system.

“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,” she 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.”
