DAILYKENN.com -- Not to worry. She can always flip back if elected.
2020 presidential candidate, US Senator, former Willie Brown squeeze, and moonbat of the month nominee Kamala Harris first said she advocated to the prohibition of private healthcare to make room for universal Medicare.
Then came a fire storm of criticism, followed by a flip.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) reversed course on her healthcare position on Tuesday, which comes less than 24 hours after she called for the elimination of the free market from the industry and advocated for a complete government takeover.
"I believe the solution — and I actually feel very strongly about this — is that we need to have Medicare for all," Harris said on Monday during CNN's town hall. "That’s just the bottom line."
CNN's Jake Tapper, who noted that Harris' position would eliminate private insurance, asked Harris, "So for people out there who like their insurance, they don’t get to keep it?"
"Let’s eliminate all of that," Harris said. "Let’s move on."
Harris' remarks ignited a political firestorm, with opponents noting that she "says she wants to eliminate private insurance even if you like your plan." CNN reports:
As the furor grew, a Harris adviser on Tuesday signaled that the candidate would also be open to the more moderate health reform plans, which would preserve the industry, being floated by other congressional Democrats. It represents a compromise position that risks angering "Medicare-for-all" proponents, who view eliminating private health insurance as key to enacting their comprehensive reform.
"Medicare-for-all is the plan that she believes will solve the problem and get all Americans covered. Period," Harris national press secretary Ian Sams told CNN. "She has co-sponsored other pieces of legislation that she sees as a path to getting us there, but this is the plan she is running on."
In a separate report, CNN noted that multiple Democrat Senators came out against Harris' call to eliminate private health insurance plans.
