Pass a “Medicare for all” bill in the house of representatives and the Senate seems like a steep slope, but the 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris believes that your colleagues could come; Peter Doocy reports from Capitol Hill.
MANCHESTER, N. H. – The breaking news by sen Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign, came just as the democratic nomination rival Sen. Kamala Harris was always ready to go before the cameras in the first-in-the-nation presidential primary state.
And while she welcomed the senator from next-door Vermont into the race, the saying “more is better”, it is also clear that you did not subscribe to his political ideology, even as they back policies popularized by the self-described democratic-socialist.
SANDERS JUMP IN THE 2020 RACE
Harris, instead, reaffirmed their commitment to capitalism Tuesday and reiterated what they said a day before: “I’m a democratic-socialist.”
“I think capitalism has great strengths, if it works for all people. I think we need to recognize that in the last many decades, the rules were written in a manner excluded, working-class families and middle-class families, and we have been on the right course,” she said.
In any other election cycle, a candidate’s commitment to capitalism could go without saying. But as candidates, including Harris, return policy, such as the Green New Deal, it has fuelled warnings from Republicans-and especially the 2020-Trump-campaign -that the democratic field will drift in the direction of socialism, with Sanders’ help.
“Bernie Sanders has already the debate in the democratic won the primary because every candidate is embracing his brand of socialism, the” trump campaign, in a statement Tuesday.
Harris has taken measures, such as “Medicare for all” and not open to part with Sanders on a specific policy on Tuesday, even as it distanced itself from his political brand. The comments to reporters after she ran the headline “politics and eggs,” a must stop in New Hampshire for the White house hopefuls.
At a rally on Monday evening in Portsmouth, where about 1,000 people crowded into the historic South of the Church for a chance, the former California attorney General, the candidate of their progressive agenda spelled out.
“Access to health care should not a privilege, it should be a right. This is the reason why I said the support of the “Medicare-for-all”, to thunderous applause.
“I summed it up, support the Green New Deal,” she said. “We have goals. It is a resolution that requires that we have goals and think about what we can achieve and put you on the metric. Some of them we will achieve. Some of them, we do not know. But if we do not strive, it will be a bad end.”
Talk like a political gift to the Republican National Committee and Trump’s election team.
Trump’s campaign national press secretary Kayleigh McEnany asserts, “the Americans are opposed to the agenda of sky-high tax rates, the government-run health and pampering dictators such as those in Venezuela. Only President Trump will keep America free, prosperous, and secure.”
‘MODERATE’ A DIRTY WORD IN 2020-FIELD?
This kind of one-size-fits-all attack may not work on all the 2020 candidates, if not all, of the Democratic contenders on the same side as Sanders.
Monday night, Sen. Amy Klobuchar took aim at the top article from the Sanders – playbook – free tuition for all in-state students at community colleges and for some students in four-year public schools.
The Minnesota Democrat, in a CNN town hall in New Hampshire – illuminated, “I am in favour of free University for all. I wish, if I was a magical genie and could give the for all and we were able to, I would.”
And the former Maryland Congressman John Delaney – who is proud of his centrist touting of credentials as he runs for the democratic nomination – said: “the primary is a choice between socialism and a fairer form of capitalism.”
In an E-Mail to supporters soon after Sanders’ announcement, Delaney wrote in an E-Mail to supporters that “I believe in capitalism, free markets and the private sector. I don’t think that socialism is the answer, and I don’t think it’s what the Americans want.”
