Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) were the only candidates in the 2020 Democratic primary debate Thursday to say they would eliminate private health insurance as part of their health-care reform plans.
Asked by NBC moderator Lester Holt who is in favor of eliminating private health insurance in favor of a single-payer, government run health plan like Medicare for all, Sanders and Harris raised their hands.
The article goes on to state the following:
We will “tell insurance companies and the drug companies their day is gone, that health care is a human right, not something to make huge profits off of,” Sanders said.
Harris and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) are both co-sponsors of Sanders’s Medicare for all bill in the Senate, but Gillibrand did not raise her hand.
