Kamala Harris releases new details of health care plan

By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — California Sen. Kamala (KAH'-mah-lah) Harris is filling in the details of how she would move 330 million Americans onto a single government health insurance system, her fullest statements to date on an issue on which she has sometimes had to clarify her views.

Harris is a supporter of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' "Medicare for All" legislation but still envisions a role for the private system — just as long as it takes its lead from the government. Medicare for All would replace the Affordable Care Act with a single-payer health plan for all Americans.

And Harris says as president she'd make a slower transition period between current policy and the ultimate goal of a single-payer system, giving 10 years instead of four for a full transition.
