Presidential candidate Kamala Harris was treated to a CNN forum Monday night where she said let’s go ahead and scrap private health insurance. Then she backpedaled, and then CNN backpedaled on saying she backpedaled when her campaign contacted CNN and told them she hadn’t backpedaled at all.

In short, it still leaves us at Harris pushing Medicare for all, and in her magnanimity perhaps allowing some private health insurers to stay in business if they so choose.

A lot of Democrats (and Bernie Sanders) are advocating for Medicare for all, but on Tuesday, pediatrician Joe Silverman posted a great thread explaining just what’s wrong with the idea and why it will create a crisis in health care.

“I’ll burn it all down before I’ll let the Democrats have any of it” — we want those words on a big wall poster. Beautiful.

Now do “free college for all.”
