On Monday, Presidential hopeful U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) told a CNN town hall in Iowa that if she was elected she would eliminate private health insurance in America, even if people like their coverage.

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Harris about her support for a Medicare for All bill sponsored by Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), which if passed, would totally eliminate private insurance and whether that meant if Americans who like their insurance would not be able to keep it.

“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 paper work,” Harris said. “Let’s eliminate all of that, let’s move on.”
