During her 2020 presidential campaign launch speech, Senator Kamala Harris gave a long list of policy promises she would enforce if she was elected president.
In her speech on Sunday, Harris slammed President Donald Trump’s leadership and claimed that America deserved better, listing many things she would change.
“I’m running to fight for an America where the economy works for working people,” Harris said. “I am running to declare, once and for all, that health care is a fundamental right, and to deliver that right with ‘Medicare for All.’ To declare education is a fundamental right, and we will guarantee that right with universal pre-K and debt-free college.”
She also claimed that she would work to repeal the Trump administration’s tax cuts, saying it was a “giveaway to the top big corporations and the top one percent,” and that her tax plan would be “the largest working and middle-class tax cut in a generation, up to $500 a month to help America’s families make ends meet.”

However, Harris’ speech was devoid of solid policy answers for how she would fund every single program mentioned, in addition to how she would convince Congress to pass the legislation.
“It’s fitting that Harris chose the most liberal district in deep-blue California to launch her campaign,” Ahrens said. “Government-run health care, weaker borders and higher taxes might be popular there, but her liberal policies are totally out-of-step with most Americans. President Trump has led this country to record economic highs and strengthened our national security, and it’s why he’s going to be re-elected in 2020.”
