Bennet slams Warren's Medicare for All plan: 'This isn't going to happen' [View all]

The Hill

Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) slammed Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D-Mass.) "Medicare for All" proposal on Friday, saying the plan is not believable.

“Voters are sick and tired of politicians promising them things that they know they can’t deliver," Bennet said in a statement. "Warren's new numbers are simply not believable and have been contradicted by experts. Regardless of whether it's $21 trillion or $31 trillion, this isn't going to happen, and the American people need health care."

Warren released her highly anticipated Medicare for All proposal on Thursday after pressure from her Democratic presidential rivals.

Warren's plan does not include a tax hike on the middle class, unlike her progressive rival Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who has said tax hikes are needed to help pay for the program.
