Carson Rolls out Medical Coalition
Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson has unveiled the team behind his campaign.
The team includes 32 members, all of which are doctors, professors, authors, or policy experts.
“I want everybody to have good healthcare,” the Republican candidate said, while debunking claims that he didn’t want the poor to have access to healthcare.
“That, of course, is propaganda,” he said in the conference streamed by ABC News.
The Hill reports:
Carson said the reason he is “not particularly enamored with this so-called Affordable Care Act” was not necessarily because of its effectiveness or cost.
Instead, he said it is “because it fundamentally changes the relationship between the people and the government. That’s why I’m so vehemently opposed to it.”
“If we don’t recognize what’s actually going on and change that, America is well on its way to a kinda of fundamental change most Americans don’t want,” he said.
Only a few Republican presidential candidates have offered details on a healthcare plan to repalce ObamaCare: Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who dropped out of the race last month.
“Let’s come up with something that’s so good and works so effectively that you don’t have to force and cajole” people into the system, Carson suggested Friday.
