Michael Bennet cited the high deductibles and lack of competition in the marketplaces as the biggest complaints he hears from Coloradans about Obamacare.
Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) admitted that Obamacare is too costly for many Americans on Wednesday during a Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing.
“To me, the most solid critique of the Affordable Care Act, as opposed to our healthcare system generally, is when people say to me ‘Michael, you’re forcing me to buy something, insurance, that costs too much because there’s no competition in my area,” Bennet told the committee.
Bennet who supported Obamacare told the committee he hears this complaint most often from people who live in Colorado’s most rural areas and say the deductible is so high that it’s of no use to their families.
“I think that is a legitimate criticism of the Affordable Care Act,” Bennet concluded.
