Kamala Harris isn’t coming back from this one…
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) visited a nursing home where she was confronted by a resident who told her to “leave our health care system alone.”
“I understand that you are advocating health care for everyone,” the woman said.
“Who’s going to pay for it?” she asked.
“Well, we’re going to pay for it. Because right now, let me tell you something, we’re all paying for health care for everyone– ” Harris began before the woman cut her off, saying, “no we’re not.”
“Leave our health care system alone,” the woman added. “We don’t want you to mess with it”:
Harris has not been as transparent as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in regards to her intentions for universal health care coverage.
She later walked that position back but signified that she, indeed, supported “abolish[ing] private health insurance in favor of a government-run plan” during a show-of-hands question at the first debate.
