Just like a politician.
After Kamala Harris’ answer on health care at CNN’s town hall prompted outrage from conservatives and liberals alike, the California Senator has already flip flopped her position.
Harris clearly stated that, “I believe the solution — and I actually feel very strongly about this — is that we need to have Medicare for all,” Harris said on Monday. “That’s just the bottom line.”
When CNN’s Jake Tapper, who was moderating the town hall noted that Harris’ position would eliminate private insurance, je asked her, “So for people out there who like their insurance, they don’t get to keep it?”
“Let’s eliminate all of that,” Harris said. “Let’s move on.”
However, after her statements, the push back was so great, that a spokesperson for the senator has eased up on some of that rhetoric.
“Medicare-for-all is the plan that she believes will solve the problem and get all Americans covered. Period,” Harris national press secretary Ian Sams told CNN. “She has co-sponsored other pieces of legislation that she sees as a path to getting us there, but this is the plan she is running on.”
