Bennet said his own plan would include a “public option” and allow people to keep their insurer if they like it. He characterized it as “Medicare for All, if you want it.”
“But if you want to keep the insurance you have, which many people do, then you’d be able to do that as well,” Bennet said.
“Now, Bernie is proposing: If you like your insurance, we’re going to take it away from you,” he said. “Bernie’s wrong to propose it. I think what we should do is give American people a choice.”

Sanders and other 2020 Democrats have backed Medicare for All. Bennet, meanwhile, has supported a plan called “Medicare X,” which would allow people of all ages to purchase Medicare plans, which are currently mostly restricted to people age 65 and older.
Bennet and Sanders are among the two dozen presidential candidates vying for the 2020 Democratic nomination.
