By Townhall. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is already gunning to be the candidate for the far left in the 2020 primaries. Her agenda calls for nearly $3 trillion in tax hikes, along with the single-payer health care. She made quite the announcement last night during a town hall event with CNN’s Jake Tapper. She wants to get rid of private health insurance. So, we’re nowhere near the Iowa Caucuses, and the far left is already working hard to give Middle America sticker shock for their trash economic agenda. . .To top it all off, Harris’ health care plan would nix over a million jobs (via NTK Network):
According to AHIP, which is a political advocacy and trade association for health insurance companies, Harris’s proposal would cost more than 1.4 million Americans their jobs. That’s according to AHIP’s 2017 report, which tracks those who were employed directly and indirectly by America’s private health insurance industry. . .
That’s over 1,420,000 Americans who could possibly lose their jobs because of Harris Medicare for all proposal. It’s not yet clear how many jobs Harris’s plan would create in a government-run system like Medicare For All.
Sounds like Harris explicitly calling for single payer health insurance — Bernie style — and not just an expanded Medicare option.
As @jaketapper notes, that would eliminate private insurance — and is bound to be awfully unpopular in the broader electorate.

Kamala Harris has an extreme idea to get gun control legislation passed
By AOL. While fielding a question about gun violence during a CNN Town Hall appearance, presidential hopeful Senator Kamala Harris called out Congress for the lack of gun control legislation.
And she even suggested “harsh” means to encourage Congress to introduce a new bill.Harris started her discussion about gun reform by saying: “You can be in favor of the second amendment and also understand that there is no reason in a civil society that we have assault weapons around communities that can kill babies and police officers.” . . .
Senator Harris became even more impassioned while discussing the inaction by congress following the 2012 Sandy Hook elementary school shooting that took the lives of 20 children between the ages 6 and 7.
She said: “I think somebody should have required all those members of Congress to go in a room, in a locked room, no press, nobody else, and look at the autopsy photographs of those babies. And then you vote your conscience.” . . .
While there was not a direct response to Senator Harris’s statements, in 2018 the National Rifle Association’s CEO Wayne LaPierre suggested armed guards instead of gun control to curb the problem, saying: “Evil walks among us, and God help us if we don’t harden our schools and protect our kids.” (Read more from “Kamala Harris has an extreme idea to get gun control legislation passed” HERE)
