Last week, the ambitious former San Francisco DA – California Attorney General and now Senator, Kamala Harris announced her candidacy for President of the United States.
This week, she announced that one of her major campaign platforms was free Medicare for all.
Only Harris’ free Medicare for all is far more dangerous, expensive and destructive than the free Medicare for all being pushed by Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
When questioned during a townhall event, Harris said that her plan would completely eliminate ALL private healthcare insurance policies in favor of 1 all encompassing government plan.
It didn’t take long for the insurance industry to join together in vowing to fight against Harris and her socialist plan.
Washington Examiner – Kamala Harris’ ‘Medicare for all’ would mean massive disruption for healthcare, and the industry is prepared to fight it – Democratic presidential contender Sen. Kamala Harris wants to “move on” from the current healthcare system in favor of a plan that would roll everyone in the U.S. onto a government plan known as “Medicare for all,” doing away with private health insurance.
As the California Democrat and others in her party make their case, however, they will face considerable opposition not only in the insurance industry, but across the healthcare sector, which would see massive upheaval from the plan. And polling suggests that the public, roughly half of which relies on private insurance, isn’t quite on board.
Drug companies, insurers, doctors, and hospitals have united in recent months to fight national government healthcare. One healthcare industry group, called the Partnership for America’s Health Care Future, has launched a five-figure digital ad campaign arguing that “Medicare for all” would cause massive disruption, higher taxes, lower quality care, and less choice for patients. It plans to spend six figures bashing “Medicare for all” over the course of 2019.
“Whether it’s called Medicare for all, single payer, or a public option, one-size-fits-all healthcare will mean all Americans have less choice and control over the doctors, treatments, and coverage,” said Lauren Crawford Shaver, the group’s executive director…
Note that Harris, a Democrat, claims to be all about helping the working class and yet her plan to abolish all private healthcare insurance policies would put thousands of people out of a job, let alone devastate the insurance industry.
Harris, like so many other socialist Democrats show that they really don’t care about the American people or care about America.
All she and her fellow socialists care about is destroying America and turning it into an ugly, oppressed bankrupt nation.
