Dem presidential candidate Kamala Harris was told to “leave our health care system alone” by a 92-year-old woman during a campaign stop in Iowa on Monday.
Roberta Jewell, who lives at the Bickford of Muscatine assisted living facility in Muscatine, spoke out against Ms. Harris‘ Medicare For All plan during the senator’s visit to the facility to play bingo with about 20 other residents, a local NBC affiliate reported.
“Who’s going to pay for it?” Ms. Jewell asked Ms. Harris during a meet-and-greet with the residents, according to a video flagged by the Republican National Committee.
“Well, we’re going to pay for it because right now,” Ms. Harris responded. “Let me tell you something, we’re all paying for health care for everyone and it’s in an emergency room.”
“No, we’re not,” Ms. Jewell fired back.
