As my mom used to tell me, “If you don’t tell a lie, you don’t have to worry about keeping up with the hundreds you will tell to cover that one.” The same is true with lying political promises, especially when they are unconstitutional. Now, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) is going to learn that the hard way as she told donors on Sunday night that she’s feeling a little uncomfortable with Senator Bernie Sanders’ (D-VT) Medicare for All bill. The question is: Why is Harris uncomfortable? After all, she not only co-sponsored the bill but also promoted it for months on the campaign trail.
The obvious answer is that she is an unprincipled woman, like most politicians.
According to Breitbart, “Harris told wealthy donors Sunday night in the Hamptons in Long Island, New York, that she found new reservations with Sanders’ single-payer healthcare plan, even though Harris was one of the original co-sponsors of the legislation when Sanders reintroduced the bill in April.”
“I have not been comfortable with Bernie’s plan,” she said.
Of course, she then attempted to talk about how she loves capitalism and how she wants to keep Americans’ private health insurance, similar to the BS that the usurper lied to the American people when he said if you have a doctor, you can keep your doctor and if you have a policy you like, you can keep that policy.
Breitbart reminds us of Harris’ previous support for Sanders and his legislation.
However, in April, along with other presidential candidates Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Cory Booker (D-NJ), and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Harris co-sponsored Sanders’ Medicare for All bill.
Sen. Harris has waffled on her support on single-payer healthcare and dodged questions over whether Medicare for All would eliminate private health insurance despite her strong backing of Medicare for All early in her presidential campaign. Sanders’ Medicare for All legislation would eliminate private health insurance except in some minor supplemental coverage.
Harris originally strongly came out in favor of Medicare for All and eliminating private health insurance. She said in January, “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… Let’s eliminate all of that. Let’s move on.”
Less than 24 hours after her controversial remarks, a Harris spokesman said she does not believe in eliminating the private health insurance industry.
In July, facing backlash over her support for eliminating private insurance, Harris introduced her new Medicare for All plan, which would allow for private health insurance companies to offer Medicare plans as long as they comply with strict requirements on costs and benefits. Harris would pay for her plan by introducing new taxes on financial transactions.
However, despite her evolving healthcare views, a recent poll found that nearly two-thirds of American battleground state voters would prefer lowering healthcare costs compared to universal healthcare coverage.
Here’s what’s even more laughable. Senator Rick Scott (R-FL), that same guy that when he was governor appointed a police impersonator as sheriff, allowing him to continue his abuse of power against women in Southwest Florida, said that Republicans were really working hard to lower healthcare costs.
“What Republicans are doing if you look at our proposals, as in all the conversation I’m in with people, is driving down the costs. If you drive down the cost, more people will be able to afford health care, we want them to actually get health care,” Scott said told Breitbart News.
Uh huh, right, Senator Scott. You guys controlled things for two years and couldn’t do the one thing you were sent to DC to do and that was to eliminate Obamacare. Instead, Republicans advanced their own socialized medicine under House Speaker Paul Ryan.
No, thanks, just get out of the way of healthcare and health insurance. It’s none of government’s business, and let the people decide what they want and what they want to pay for without Nanny State intervention.
