Kamala’s health-care plan: Further left than Europe

By Around the Web

(The Hill) — Announcing that, as President, she would “eliminate” private health insurance from the American marketplace puts Harris to the left of the British Labour Party, most French socialists, and even increasing parts of Sweden’s system.

In fact, as Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs noted on Twitter, her plan puts her to the left of Aneurin Bevan, one of the founders of Britain’s National Health Service (NHS).

As someone who grew up with it, I will admit the NHS has benefits: not having to worry about insurance or fluctuating costs; coverage; where and when I might be seen by a doctor; and a pretty standardized level of care across the country.
