Schultz: Kamala Harris’ Medicare For All Proposal Is Un-American

"That's not correct, that's not American. What's next? What industry are we going to abolish next?" Howard Schultz asked about Kamala Harris Medicare For All proposal.

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who is exploring a run for president in 2020 as an independent candidate, attacked 2020 Democratic hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) for her Medicare For All proposal, which Schultz called un-American, during an interview on Tuesday.

CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell asked Schultz about his comparison that Democrats’ Medicare For All proposal was akin to President Trump’s border wall.

“Well, you just played Senator Harris saying she wants to abolish the insurance industry. That’s not correct, that’s not American. What’s next? What industry are we going to abolish next?” Schultz asked.

Schultz was referring to comments that Harris made during a CNN town hall on Monday in which she essentially said she would end the private insurance industry in America if elected president.

“The Republicans want to get rid of the Affordable Care Act. I don’t agree with that. The Affordable Care Act should stay, and it should be refined. But to think we should get rid of the insurance industry?” Schultz asked rhetorically.

Schultz then told O’Donnell this is just another example of two far extremes in America and how the “silent majority of America does not have a voice, and that’s the voice I want to give.”
