Kamala Harris (D-Ca.), who recently launched her presidential campaign, said she wants to eliminate private insurance entirely, which would mean that about 177 million people would lose their existing plan. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., at a CNN town hall event. She was warm, witty and quick to laugh at the jokes audience members made at President Donald Trump's expense.

Her listeners responded with a round of loud applause. That's why Democrats are panicking over the possibility of a third party candidate like Howard Schultz, former Starbucks CEO, who could siphon off many anti-Trump votes by not running as a complete loony.
