She will be under the spotlight for the next few days and any gaffs will be front page….
Presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) on Friday clarified her stance on health insurance, saying she doesn’t support eliminating private insurers after appearing to back just that during the Democratic debate on Thursday.
Asked in an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday if she believed private insurance should be eliminated in the U.S., she clarified: “No, no. I do not.”
Harris raised her hand Thursday night when the panel was asked by moderator Lester Holt who supported eliminating private insurance in favor of a government-run health care plan.
Harris and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) were the only candidates on the stage to raise their hands, but Harris said Friday she misunderstood the question.
“The question was would you give up for private insurance for that option and I said yes,” Harris said Friday.
“You heard it differently than others then,” a Morning Joe panelist replied.
“Probably, because that’s what I heard,” she said.
Harris has waffled on the issue of private insurance for months….
