Harris's proposal did not offer many details about how the transition would work or how it would be financed, but Harris vowed not to raise taxes on families making less than $100,000 to pay for the plan.
Second, Harris's bill would extend the transition period from four to 10 years, providing for what she says would be a less expensive transition than one carried out over a shorter period.
"Essentially, we would allow private insurance to offer a plan in the Medicare system, but they will be subject to strict requirements to ensure it lowers costs and expands services".
Harris is trailing Sanders by about three points according to the RealClear Politics poll average.
Her plan is influenced by a Citizen report that projects the USA spends $3.3 trillion annually on healthcare which is 17 percent of its GDP.
Sanders said this month that the sweeping overhaul of the USA health system he envisions could cost up to $40 trillion over a decade, and he has said that one option for paying for part of that hefty price would be a 4% tax hike on families making more than $29,000 each year.
To pay for the difference, Harris wants to tax stock trades at 0.2% of the value of the transaction, 0.1% for bonds and 0.002% for derivatives.
Harris is calling for exempting households making less than $100,000 each year from that 4% tax, with "a higher income threshold for middle-class families living in high-cost areas". In her proposal, Harris cites that Americans pay twice as much for healthcare and yet 30 million people in this country are uninsured. After the debates, one aide recalled that she buys the first round of drinks for staff members who helped her prepare, even if she heads out early to bed.
U.S. Senator Kamala Harris on Monday released a Medicare-for-all proposal ahead of the second Democratic presidential debate, when candidates' differing approaches to giving Americans greater access to affordable health insurance is expected to feature prominently.
"I have a vision of what it should be, and the existing plans that are being offered did not express what I wanted", Harris told reporters while campaigning in Detroit.
For those who get healthcare through an employer, themain way working-age Americans get coverage, Harris' proposal would let companies keep their plans during the 10-year transition.
Biden, the front-runner right now in the 2020 Democratic race and the only top-tier contender who doesn't support a single-payer Medicare-for-all system, has repeatedly taken jabs this month at Harris over a lack of straightforwardness on how she'd pay for her plan.
Tapper played a clip of former Vice President Joe Biden's appearance in Dearborn, Michigan, on Wednesday in which he implied that candidates who claim they can implement Medicare for All without taxing the middle class were not in touch with reality.
"In America, health care should be a right, not a privilege only for those who can afford it", Harris said in the statement, "It's why we need Medicare for All". Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir accused her of "continuing her gradual backdown from Medicare for All" and suggested that she had been inconsistent on the issue of health care.
Echoing Lighty's critique, Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP) president Adam Gaffney called the reliance on private insurance the "major deficiency at the heart of Harris' healthcare plan". "This plan is centered around privatizing Medicare, enriching insurance executives and introducing more corporate greed and profiteering into the Medicare system". If we do nothing over the next decade, that number will skyrocket to an estimated $6 trillion a year. She now calls for abolishing it in 10 years.
