A senior citizen resident of a local nursing home called-out Sen. Kamala Harris on the campaign trail this week; telling the progressive lawmaker to “leave our healthcare alone.”
Nursing home resident slams Kamala Harris' health care plan:
Woman: "you are advocating health care for everyone … who's going to pay for it?"
Harris: "Well, we're going to pay for it"
W: "No we're not. Leave our health care system alone. We don't want you to mess with it" pic.twitter.com/3PphwW3svR

“You are advocating health care for everyone … who’s going to pay for it?” asked the resident.
“Well, we’re going to pay for it,” said Harris.
“No, we’re not. Leave our health care system alone. We don’t want you to mess with it,” fired-back the unidentified woman.
Sen. Harris’ poll numbers have dropped in key primary states since last month’s second Democrat debates.
“Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is the big winner in the second round of Democratic presidential debates, but former Vice President Joseph Biden retains his front-runner status with 32 percent of Democrats and independent voters who lean Democratic, according to a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today,” reports the poll.
“Sen. Elizabeth Warren has 21 percent among Democrats, with 14 percent for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and 7 percent for California Sen. Kamala Harris,” adds the survey. “This compares to results of a July 29 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh- pe-ack) University National Poll, showing Biden with 34 percent, Warren with 15 percent, Harris with 12 percent and Sanders with 11 percent.”
Harris’ numbers have dropped 13% since the first presidential debate.
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard slammed Kamala Harris on social media days ago; saying her entire presidential campaign is “based on a lie.”
“Kamala’s entire campaign is based on a lie — that as AG of California, she was a fighter for the oppressed and for criminal justice reform. But her criminal justice record shows that her policies exemplified the worst aspects of our criminal justice system,” said Gabbard.
