My latest supercut for @thefix:

Kamala Harris has changed her position on health care no fewer than three times since becoming a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.

January: Eliminate private health insurance

April: I support supplemental private health insurance

May: I support Bernie’s Medicare-for-all bill

June: Don’t eliminate private health insurance

August: I want to separate health care from the employer

Kamala Harris in 2017:

Medicare-for-all is “the right thing to do”

Kamala Harris in 2019:

“I don’t think it was any secret that I was not entirely comfortable [with Medicare-for-all] — that’s an understatement”

Four Democratic presidential candidates co-sponsored Bernie Sanders’ Medicare-for-all bill in 2017:

-Kamala Harris
-Elizabeth Warren
-Cory Booker
-Kirsten Gillibrand

None would tell Business Insider whether they still support it when asked this week.
