The California Democrat said she misunderstood the question and believed it was about whether she, personally, would give up her private plan in favor of Medicare. The Affordable Care Act expanded health-care to about 20 million people, about a third of whom got coverage through government-subsidized private plans. Holt meant the word to refer to all Americans enrolled in insurance through their jobs.

"I think you heard it differently from others, then", Geist responded.

"So, the question was would you be willing to give up your private insurance", Harris said on "CBS This Morning".

'We would actually extend benefits.

Those on the more moderate end of the party have advocated keeping a role for private health insurance, which covers more than half of Americans.

The question about abolishing private insurance attracted two fans during Thursday night's portion of hte two-day debate event: New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (left) and Massachusetts Sen. "It was in the context of saying let's get rid of all the bureaucracy". "Let's get all of the waste",' she said in May.

'Oh, not the insurance companies?' Tapper asked.

'No. That's not what I meant. I know it was interpreted that way, ' Harris replied. "All of the Democrats tripped over each other in a race to see who could stand out as the most leftist candidate, threatening government control of every aspect of people's lives", said campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany.

Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., raised their hands during the Democratic debates this week in support of eliminating private insurance and shifting toward a Medicare-for-all plan.

That hand was Joe Biden's.

Like the 10 candidates in the first Democratic debate on Wednesday night, the contenders on Thursday disagreed over the best way to boost access to healthcare insurance coverage. Only two candidates raised their hands: NY mayor Bill de Blasio and Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA.
