The campaigns of two rivals, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and former vice president Joe Biden, quickly criticized the Harris proposal. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., now one of the two leading black candidates in the contest, speaks during a candidates forum at the 110th NAACP National Convention in Detroit.
Sen. Kamala Harris releasedher own version of a "Medicare for all" plan on Monday that imposesa tax on Wall Street instead of on middle-class households and tightlyregulates, but not abolishes, private insurance plans.
Whitmer, whose pragmatic leadership and focus on roads, schools and the economy won her MI 53 to Republican Bill Schuette's 44 percent in 2018, was criticized in her own primary for being too moderate.
Progressives took issue with the presidential candidate for stopping short of the full-scale health care overhaul embodied by the "Medicare for All" legislation.
The mayor's campaign said Monday that he had "a very good first debate performance, but knows this one is different and he will be ready to perform accordingly". The two will share the stage again on Wednesday night, the second night of this week's debate.
In her post, Harris pointed to the Medicare for All plan proposed by Sen. "The elimination of employer-based insurance in favor of a Medicare-for-all proposal is bad idea that punishes working families who have been able to secure quality healthcare".
"I have a vision of what it should be, and the existing plans that are being offered did not express what I wanted", the California senator told reporters.
But Harris split from that approach on several fronts.
Harris envisions a system like the current Medicare system, in which people can either purchase government-administrated Medicare plans or buy Medicare plans from private companies - an option known as Medicare Advantage.
On Twitter, Shakir said the proposal represents another phase of Harris's "gradual backdown from Medicare for All".

Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris revealed her Medicare for All plan Monday that she said will fix a broken system while preserving private insurance companies.
"This new, have-it-every-which-way approach pushes the extremely challenging implementation of the Medicare for All part of this plan ten years into the future, meaning it would not occur on the watch of even a two-term administration", Bedingfield continued.
In recent years, Medicare for All saw the peak of its favorability in March 2018, when about 59% of the public said they favored a system in which all Americans would get their insurance from one government plan.
'The function of Medicare for All is to guarantee health care to all people as soon as possible, ' Sanders continued. She said health care should be a right not a privilege. In previous elections, we've seen candidates repeat the myth that preventive care saves money, so health care can be extended to those individuals at no cost.
But Topher Spiro, vice president for health policy at the left-leaning think tank Center for American Progress, lauded Harris for trying to assuage "concerns that people have about disruption and about an abrupt transition" away from a largely employer-based health insurance system.
"We're building this campaign the right way, brick by brick from the grassroots up, and we're seeing the results of that strategy as we continue to build momentum", said Cory 2020 Campaign Manager Addisu Demissie.
Harris has repeatedly been forced to clarify her stance on Medicare for All.
This comes with costs and benefits - on the one hand, it's a more extended time to make a big transition in how America does health care. That's why I propose that we exempt households making below $100,000 [from new taxes to pay for single payer], along with a higher income threshold for middle-class families living in high-cost areas.
Mr Sanders estimated that the tax increase he proposed would raise 3.5 trillion U.S. dollars over 10 years.
Harris said a Wall Street transaction tax - levied on trades of stocks, bonds and derivatives - would help cover some of the costs, in addition to the aforementioned taxes on the wealthy.
