Earlier today, Bennet released the following statement:

"Coloradans want us to fix and improve our health care system," Bennet said. "You couldn't design a bill less responsive to what the opponents of Obamacare have said they want than the bill that recently passed the House of Representatives. The Senate proposal is just as bad, if not worse, than that legislation because it decreases coverage and increases costs instead of expanding quality and affordable health care. Coloradans deserve a full debate and an open process when it comes to reforming something that affects one-sixth of our economy. Instead of writing a bill in secret and rushing to pass it before an arbitrary deadline, we should work in a bipartisan and transparent way to provide more predictability, affordability, and transparency to give Coloradans the health care system they deserve."
