Fact Check: Yes, Kamala Harris Is Being Funded by Big Pharma and Big Tech

During the CNN and New York Times Democrat debate on Tuesday night, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) suggested that politicians cannot pretend to take on Big Tech and big pharmaceutical corporations after taking their donations — something Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has continued to do throughout her run for president.

PINKERTON: How Republicans Should Address the Hostile Obamacare Town Halls

The fate of Obamacare dominates the news—again. Eight years ago, anti-Obamacare Republicans and Tea Partiers were on the offensive. Today, it’s pro-Obamacare Democrats, perhaps joined by “astroturf” activists, on the offense.

Part of the problem is the GOP has never really come to grips with the basic question: Do Americans have a right to health insurance?
