Kamala Harris has a reputation for spouting falsehoods, just like 11 out of every 10 Congressional Democrats (and the vast majority of Republicans). On Sunday night, the junior senator from California was caught in a damning lie.

Harris also blatantly lied about her past support for government-run health care.
“No, and in fact that my plan, when I was running, was that we would not eliminate private insurance,” Harris falsely claimed. “And Joe and I—”Trending:

Harris was “the first Democrat to announce she’ll co-sponsor Sen. Bernie Sanders’ single-payer health care bill when it’s introduced in September,” CNN reported in 2017.
