Harris Takes Heat for Backtracking on Nixing Private Insurance Again After Idea Isn’t Popular During Debate

@MSNBC/Twitter

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) is takingsome heat for backtracking on her opinion on private healthcare insurance the Democratic debate on Thursday.

As IJR Red noted, Harris has taken a confusing position on the issue in the past, having flip-flopped on whether she’d nix private insurance options after initially getting backlash for the idea. However, during the debate, she backtracked again when the candidates were asked if they would abolish private insurance.

Watch her raise her hand:

After the debate, she was called out for flipping on the issue once again, yet Harris claimed it was because she did not hear the question correctly and took it to mean that she wanted to give up her own insurance.

Watch Harris’ clarification:

After her backtrack, some on social media called Harris out for her confusing position on the issue.

Some weren’t buying her excuse:

Others called her out for her confusing position changes:

Some even pointed out that she actually cosponsors a bill eliminating private insurance:

Despite publicly claiming she opposes eliminating private insurance, it is true that Harris is a co-sponsor of fellow presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) “Medicare for All” bill — which would do just that by making private insurance options illegal. It remains to be seen how she’ll answer the question next time.

What do you think?

This woman would climb a tree to tell a lie…she did not misunderstand anything. She demonstrated once again that she will say ANYTHING to advance her career

/sarc/ I see nothing wrong with making private insurance illegal. How many companies will close and go out of business; how many hard working people will be put out of work; how much would the economy deteriorate under Commie Sander’s NO premium, NO co-pay, NO nothing single payer plan? BUT he says he will have to raise taxes to pay for all the FREE stuff he and his comrades want to exchange for votes. The United States will become a doomed outpost of Venezuela if any one of these Socialists/Marxists lie their way into the WH.

” I did not hear the question , SO INSTEAD of ASKING FOR CLARIFICATION , I FOLLOWED OTHERS AND AGREED WITH WHATEVER THEY WERE AGREEING TO ”
“JUST AS MY DNC MASTERS HAVE TAUGHT ME TO DO … WE ALL LEARNED what DNC will do to us IF we do not follow in goosestep manner. Just look at how the DNC RIGGED ELECTION to favor Clinton over Sanders “

Apparently Floppy Joe has nothing on Kamala. The desperate Dumbos want to keep their eyes on the prize but are too baffled to strategize.
Weakness begets weakness and the Doomocrats are
becoming exponentially weak.

Typical politician, that tries to say what people want to hear even if they don’t believe or means to stand for.
Very normal among democrats.
