Here’s what she says: ” I’m running to fight for Medicare for All, universal pre-K, debt-free college & more.

Does what they say really matter? (Example: “Hope and Change”.) It appears Harris has hired Hillary campaign workers* and, like Obama, is being funded by Wall Street. What more information do you need?
