Harris Says Massive Spending Programs Are About ‘Investment,’ Not Cost

"When people start saying, 'Costs, costs, costs,' my response is, 'No, it's not about cost, it's about investment.'"

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) doesn’t seem to believe that the costs of some of her policy proposals like Medicare for All are an issue, saying as much during an interview with “Political Party Live” podcast in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on Monday.

The host asked Harris how she would respond to critics of her policy proposals, specifically Medicare for All, who say it’s too expensive to enact.

“I would say to them that we have to reframe the perspective,” Harris said. “Because the premise there is that access to affordable health care should not be a privilege, it should be a right.”

“When people start saying, ‘Costs, costs, costs,’ my response is, ‘No, it’s not about cost, it’s about investment,'” she added.
