    “We need to have Medicare for all,” Harris, a 2020 Democratic presidential contender, said in response to a question on whether she would cut private insurers out of the American healthcare system at a CNN town hall in Iowa Monday night.

    When pressed by CNN's Jake Tapper on if those people who enjoy their insurance could keep it, Harris said that it was time to "eliminate" all private health insurance.

    So they really want Medicaid for all? Because if it doesn’t cover 100% how do they expect to cut out Ins companies?

    And that's the big if. It says it will cover all medically necessary cost. Who decides if it is medically necessary? If it's not you we're in trouble.

    That's the same standard Medicare uses now. Please at least pretend to be familiar with your own industry,
