And I OOP-
Senator Kamala Harris has come to her senses and threw in the towel on her presidential bid for the 2020 election on Tuesday as her poll numbers plummeted. I guess she’s learned that extra favors don’t get you very far in the world of politics, just ask Monica Lewinsky.
Harris released a statement saying that she tried her best but that she needed to end her campaign. “I’ve taken stock and looked at this from every angle, and over the last few days have come to one of the hardest decisions of my life. My campaign for president simply doesn’t have the financial resources we need to continue,” she continued, “I’m not a billionaire. I can’t fund my own campaign. And as the campaign has gone on, it’s become harder and harder to raise the money we need to compete.”
“In good faith, I can’t tell you, my supporters and volunteers, that I have a path forward if I don’t believe I do,” she added.

In all fairness though, her policies SUCKED! She took a page right out of the Bernie Sanders handbook and came out swinging. The senator wanted to implement “Medicare-for-All,” tuition-free college and universal pre-kindergarten public education.
“I am running to declare once and for all that health care is a fundamental right, and we will deliver that right with ‘Medicare-for-All,’” Harris said. “I am running to declare education is a fundamental right, and we will guarantee that right with universal pre-K and debt-free college.”
While she had all these wild ideas, one thing she did not have was a plan to pay for it all.
A study by the Mercatus Center found that “Medicare-for-All” would cost over $32 trillion over 10 years. Then you can add in the free college for all, which would cost $807 billion over a decade, according to the Tax Policy Center. Then there’s the universal pre-K. The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget estimates the cost for that to be around $190 billion over 10 years. Combine the three and you have $33 trillion in expenses over the next decade.
Not even a 100 percent tax on millionaires would be enough to pay for it!
