And Kamala certainly did not, and she made sure to put her point forward.

In addition to the tax credit, her proposal says she will use executive action to eliminate "Trump's tariffs", expand rural health care and guarantee broadband access to all households by 2024. It's the Republican legislatures that are telling women what to do with their bodies. At the CNN/New York Times debate, she said that women would die someday because they do not have the right to their own bodies.

Former-prosecutor Harris was speaking at the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) forum in Iowa when she was asked if she would prosecute President Trump. The first woman attorney general of California said that her mother arrived in America, alone, at the age of 19 with a mission to cure cancer.

"Women are the majority of the population in this country", Senator Harris concluded.

Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., a few minutes later, also drew applause when he quipped that it should not only be women who are talking about women's healthcare issues. God bless Kamala. Women should not be the only ones taking up this cause and this fight. "People need to keep their hands off of women's bodies and let women make the decisions about their own lives". It's not just because women are our daughters and our friends and our wives. It's because women are people. Her mother, Shyamala Gopalan Harris, was supposed to have an arranged marriage but she got involved in the civil rights movement and met Donald Harris of Jamaican origin. Harris said she would consult the Justice Department to review if the process would be legal. "And I will tell you, that part of why I am running - because Donald Trump if he had his way, my story would not be possible", she added.

As many viewers of last night's Democratic debate noted, there were several topics that were completely glossed over by both moderators and candidates.
