While Sen. Kamala Harris was helping senior citizens in a nursing home in Iowa with their game of bingo, one of the residents told her what she thought about her healthcare policies.

The elderly woman asked the presidential candidate how she was going to pay for a “Medicare for all” plan.

“Well, we’re going to pay because right now, let me tell you something, we’re all paying for healthcare for everyone and it’s in the emergency room,” Harris told the woman.

“No, we’re not. No, we’re not. Leave our healthcare system alone. We don’t want you to mess with it,” the woman replied.

Harris said she will not mess with the woman’s healthcare and promised to have it set up the way she likes.

Harris, who co-sponsored the Medicare for All Act, which would get rid of private healthcare plans, introduced a different plan that would allow private healthcare to continue and would enroll most U.S. residents in a government plan.

“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 explained. “If they want to play by our rules, they can be in the system. If not, they have to get out.”
