California Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris stunned audience members at a CNN town hall event Monday evening; bizarrely suggesting the US medical system would be better off without private health insurance companies.
Harris was speaking alongside CNN’s Jake Tapper when she was asked if she would support a ‘Medicare for All’ system throughout the United States.

“Well, listen, the idea is that everyone gets access to medical care. And you don’t have to go through the process of going through an insurance company, having them give you approval, going through the paperwork, all of the delay that may require,” Harris told Tapper.
“Let’s eliminate all of that. Let’s move on,” she added.
EX-ICE BOSS ON HANNITY: Kamala Harris Should Apologize for ‘DISGUSTING’ KKK Comparison
Former ICE Director Tom Homan stopped by ‘Hannity’ Monday night to weigh-in on Sen. Kamala Harris’ recent comments comparing federal immigration agents to the KKK; saying she should be “ashamed” for her “disgusting” remarks.
“First of all, what Kamala Harris did was disgusting. She compared the 20,000 men and women of ICE, the same men and women that strap a gun to their hip and defend this nation; to compare them to such a hate group is just disgusting,” said Homan.
“For her, as a US Senator, to make that comparison… she failed the American people. ICE is enforcing the law that Congress enacted. They’re not making this up. Shame on her,” he added.

BETO RISING: O’Rourke LEADS in New Democrat Poll, Tops Biden, Bernie
Beto O’Rourke topped a list of likely Democratic presidential candidates in a stunning new poll released Tuesday; beating Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden by a slim margin.
The poll, published by NBC News, show Beto leading the pack with 15.6%, Biden at 14.9%, and Bernie Sanders at 13.1%.
29 percent of those asked said they were undecided at the time of the survey.
“It’s another sign of O’Rourke’s surprising popularity among national Democrats and a potentially troubling indication for Sanders, whom MoveOn endorsed in the 2016 Democratic primary. That year, 78 percent of MoveOn members voted to back Sanders over Hillary Clinton,” writes NBC News.
The three likely candidates were followed by Sen. Kamala Harris, Warren, Sherrod Brown, Klobuchar, and Cory Booker.
