(CNN)Liberal Senate Democrats are unloading on a bipartisan group of senators working on an infrastructure deal, warning that any pared-back measure to win GOP backing almost certainly would fail to deliver on their party's promises and could lead to a revolt from the left.

It's time to move forward," Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, told CNN on the talks with the bipartisan group.

The public rebuke is happening even as the White House and Senate Democratic leaders are giving negotiators from both parties time to see if they can cut a deal, with a bipartisan group of 10 senators saying Thursday they had reached an agreement "on a comprehensive framework" and it would be "fully paid for and not include tax increases. "

"Right now we don't have the votes to do that," Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, a New Hampshire Democrat who is also engaged in the bipartisan talks, said when asked if she'd back a Democrat-only approach through the reconciliation process.

That's a good next step," said Sen. Bill Cassidy, Republican from Louisiana, who is part of the group trying to hash out a bipartisan deal.

"No," Senate Budget Chairman Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent who caucuses with the Democrats, said when asked if would support the bipartisan group's potential agreement.
