Sen. Kamala Harris' 2020 campaign platform includes a monthly tax credit for middle-class families, a Medicare-for-all healthcare system, pursuing a reduction in mortality rates and changes in immigration and bail overhauls to reduce the federal prison population, The Washington Post reports.

Sen. Harris, D-Calif., on Monday announced she would be seeking the Democratic nomination for president, launching her campaign among an already crowded field.

"Right now we have an administration that has waged a full-on assault against American institutions and American ideals," she said during an appearance on ABC's "Good Morning America."

"It is going to be about speaking truth, especially when there is so much that is contrary to truth. It is going to be about regaining the trust of Americans."

Harris' platform incorporates Bernie Sanders' healthcare proposal, which includes universal healthcare for every American and expands the type of coverage offered while eliminating deductibles, copays, and premiums.

The tax credit includes as much as $500 for families earning less than $100,000 a year and $3,000 for individuals making $50,000 or less.

Harris also supports free tuition at four-year public colleges for most Americans, a ban on assault weapons and sale of high-capacity magazines, abortions, and same-sex marriage.
