During her public session at CNN a few weeks ago, Kamala Harris, presidential candidate of 2020, answered Jake Tapper's question about the removal of private health insurance by saying: "Eliminate all that. Let's move on."
Harris quickly took over, and an advisor tried to extinguish the fire by saying that Mr. Harris "would also be open to more moderate health reform plans, which would preserve the industry". as president, she would not put the entire private health insurance industry out of business.
With this vision of private health insurance floating around the Democratic Party, it is not surprising that Progressive Congressman Pramila Jayapal is inspired enough to hear that health insurance in free fall due to uncertainties.
It seems that the new Democrats bill on Medicare for all is putting order in the health insurance stocks.https://t.co/GKULNu1dQp

Aw, that's great. If any of your 401 (k) plans or your pension plan are invested in health insurance, please excuse us.
Health insurers are declining among health stocks as investors focus on the new Medicare for All bill, which would replace almost all private plans and assess the implications of an audience of the Senate on soaring drug prices.
"This has not yet been requested to be enacted," said Brian Rye, a policy analyst for Bloomberg Intelligence. "But the noise factor is there and you can bet that several Democratic candidates will participate and promote it during the debates that will begin in June."
Do not forget that for progressive Democrats such as Jayapal, bad news for the market is good news. Once all the insurance companies have failed because of the government's drift, the government will have all power over the industry.

We must not be happy about the injuries suffered by companies in the sector and especially the loss of their jobs.

Hey, how did this woman come in here? You spoil the party!
If insurance companies want to make money by acting like pimps, they just have to be honest and do the right thing.

If only it would lower the premiums. Thank you for everything you do.

Obamacare has passed, and President Obama assured us that we would save $ 2,500 each. I guess Obamacare did not do enough.
Well. I need my health insurance. Health care can not continue to be at the mercy of for-profit companies

With Medicare for all, health insurance companies would be redundant. We will not need them to attack the sick for profit

1000 of us are employed by insurance co. As you get older, some nurses can no longer work in hospitals. I am a democrat. I want solutions for health care, but casual remarks like this have no consideration for 1000 of our jobs? cc @SpeakerPelosi

It does not matter because it will never happen. What matters are the retirement accounts of your constituents, which you could give twice.

Yes good idea. That the same people who manage the DMV manage our national health care system … * shaking your head *

Just make sure your friends in the ruling class and yourself are stuck with exactly the same ineffective health care provided by governments as everyone else.

It does not matter, people are happy that health insurance companies are getting what they want. Maybe this guy had a point; maybe at this point, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Elizabeth Warren are centristsat least in the new Democratic Party. If you liked your plan, forget it … it's gone.
POPCORN time! Dems flee the targeting of private health plans by Kamala Harris, and it speaks VOLUMES https://t.co/4k70uPFEKn
