California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris, speaking during a town hall Monday night, vowed to eliminate all private health care insurance for approximately 150 million Americans if she is elected president.
Asked by CNN host Jake Tapper if people who like their current health care insurance could keep it under Harris' "Medicare for All" plan, Harris indicated they could not -- but that, in turn, they would experience health care without any delays.
Her statements appeared to be a full-throated call for single-payer health insurance, as opposed to merely expanding Medicare, and a dramatic embrace of the kind of proposals advocated by Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders.
"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," Harris told Tapper.
"Who among us has not had that situation?" she continued. "Where you 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."
President Barack Obama famously repeated several times throughout his presidency, in seeking to promote the Affordable Care Act (known as "ObamaCare"), that "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it."

I suspect she will be eliminated first...
So your a Stalinist then Kampala?
people are so retarded about health care they may buy this line of crap. they bought “if you like your plan, you can keep it” despite the fact that it was obviously impossible under ACA, and then they barely batted an eyelash when it turned out to be a huge lie.
if this happens, the sheeple will barely whimper about it.
Kamela, also, protected a lot rapists while serving as Californias AG!
Unprocessed rape kits in California while Kamala was the state AG!
If she had done her job as our state AG, there would not be hundreds if not thousands of Rape Kits not processed.
Maybe some females in California and the nation can bring this scandal forward after Kamala convenitly forgot about them.

Hey you two snakes back there, get busy!
Are you kidding?
She’s a rock star in the Dem party!
She will be praised for this!......................
Yep. She's peaking early in what will certainly be a crowded field. She's not Hillary Clinton and this isn't a coronation. There will be challengers.
Everyone, please stop commenting on her.
She is a completely I’m serious candidate for president however, she is Angling four more powerful positions on various committees
The good news is Willie Brown will not be able to help her with any more positions
In order for this to work, ALL DOCTORS, NURSES AND THERAPISTS would have to become GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES and take a HUGE CUT IN PAY....................that ain’t gonna happen.
They will ‘retire’ or move to another country. Then there will be NO HEALTHCARE AT ALL............
MEDICARE for all = MEDICAID for all.
The quality will go down and the middle class will be taxed out of existence.
We already know her position with Willie Brown......horizontal.................
Let’s also move on from this little Communist dog.
Hillary Clinton is the one doing the eliminating, those leaks about Harris didn’t come from the GOP that came from insider info that maybe the kind the FBI might gather as the Clintons didn’t steal two truck loads of FBI files for nothing..
Polioticians, that's who.
Medical care without delay in Medicare for all?
Absolute and unadulterated BS.
Unless it's for those whom the death panels deem deserve the health care.
The rest simply get none and die from their afflictions.
I think the Rats will throw a sacrificial lamb in 2020. I believe they want Trump re-elected to be ready by 2024, to win then and fully implement their radical Left agenda.
They know people aren’t ready yet for it.
They are counting on Trump being so unpopular by the end of his second-term that the Rats will sweep everything in 2024, then it’s “Katy bar the door.”
Will Kamala have Govt run health care on her and her family..I know I know silly question, of course not..they are exempt
It will be worse than you think.
Doctors, nurses and therapists will have to become government employees, take government salaries and live like peons.
They will retire, quit or leave before that happens...................
