REPORTER: "How do you propose to pay for your version of Medicare for all if it resembles what Senator Sanders is proposing?"
HARRIS: "Well part of it is going to have to be about Wall Street paying more. It’s going to have to be about looking at how we -- and what we tax in terms of financial services that’s part of it. But the other part it is to understand this is about an investment which will reap a great return on the investment. We can’t only look at this issue in terms of cost without thinking about benefit. The benefit to the American public will be that people will have access to health care that right now they cannot afford. And we are all paying a price for that."
