We’re beginning to wonder if Sen. Kamala Harris even knows where she stands when it comes to private health insurance.
During a Sunday interview with Jake Tapper, she said she did not “mean” to say she wants to eliminate insurance companies … yet she supports a bill that essentially wipes them out, so she does.

She says no, but means yes?
Also, “Medicare for all!”
This exchange is just brutal… She comes off as evasive and dishonest talking about her previous answers, and then doubles down on the flip flopping 30 second later… I'm embarrassed for her… ? https://t.co/1Og0o7w87Z

As referenced in the interview, Harris has had a lot of difficulty explaining her position on this.

What clarity did we gain from her answer?
Is this clarifying? https://t.co/kiNER3Y51W

She’s going to have to clean up her answer before the first debate. This just adds more confusion. https://t.co/tc6gMSb6gp

She doesn't have a clue what she is talking about. https://t.co/RYVq0RChpA

Perhaps there was some clarity: She is planning to do away with private insurance while telling us she isn’t doing away with private insurance.
This isn’t complicated.
Harris stands by Bernie Sanders’ Medicare for All bill.
Sanders’ bill would eliminate the private health insurance that 180 million Americans currently use.
Harris supports eliminating private health insurance. https://t.co/tqcHPXefXP

In an attempt to out-Bernie the others and appear to the left of Joe, she is trying to straddle a fence that doesn’t exist.
