When you think that the Dems can’t do anything crazier they came out and say something like this!
During a CNN town hall, Harris expressed her approval for a “Medicare for all” system.
“We need to have Medicare for all,” said Harris, who was a co-signer of Medicare for All Act by Senator Bernie Sanders.
However, host Jake Tapper pointed out that many may be reluctant to give up their freedom to choose what type of coverage they have. Harris responded with claims that free healthcare will give them the same freedoms.
“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 all the paperwork, all of the delay that may require,” Harris said. “Who of all us have not had that situation where you have to wait for approval and the doctor says, ‘I don’t know if your insurance company is going to cover this.’”
AUDIENCE MEMBER: 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?
KAMALA HARRIS: I believe the solution — and I actually feel very strongly about this — is that we need to have Medicare for all. That’s just the bottom line.
HARRIS: And I’ll say this, and this is I think why you’re also asking this question. What we know is that to live in a civil society, to be true to the ideals and the spirit of who we say we are as a country, we have to appreciate and understand that access to health care should not be thought of as a privilege. It should be understood to be a right. It should be understood to be something that all people should be entitled to so that they can live a productive life, so they can have dignity. And having a system that makes a difference in terms of who receives what based on your income is unconscionable. It is cruel. And in many situations that I have witnessed, inhumane. I have talked about my personal experience of my mother, who passed away many years ago and going through the health care system with her. And she had — she had the benefit of having Medicare, but not everybody does. It is inhumane. It is inhumane to make people go through a system where they cannot literally receive the benefit of what medical science can offer because some insurance company has decided it doesn’t meet their bottom line in terms of their profit motivation. That is inhumane.
JAKE TAPPER: So just to follow up on that, and correct me if I’m wrong. To reiterate, you support the Medicare for all bill, initially co-sponsored by Senator Bernie Sanders. I believe it will totally eliminate private insurance. So for people out there who like their insurance, they don’t get to keep it?
HARRIS: 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. 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.
TAPPER: Let’s go to the next question.
HARRIS: That too.

She has no logic just shills to some socialist ideology that will put a nail in her coffin.
