Ben Carson Says He’ll Help Trump Replace Obamacare

Ben Carson said he would help President-elect Donald Trump construct a replacement to Obamacare.

“I think the replacement must obviously come first and it must be something that is very appealing and easy to understand,” he told Politico Wednesday. “And then, only then, would you dismantle what’s in place.”

Carson declined to say whether he was being considered for a Cabinet position, but Politico reports that his name is being floated as a possible candidate for positions such as secretary of health and human services or secretary of education.

Trump campaigned on replacing Obamacare with a simpler, cheaper alternative that has less government regulation.

Trump has said he will keep parts of obamacare. Hmmmm?

He's soft-footing because he's not in yet. Let's see what happens come January 20th. In the meantime, TPP is dead and that's a HUGE plus for our business as well as the tax reforms that are about to take place effective immediately after passage. People just need to remember, right now, he's fielding the territory. He's made great strides towards an expedient implementation with pushing Christie to the curb and putting Pence in charge. His first three appointments have already gone down - Peter Thiel, Dr. Ben and KellyAnne. So much for being a homophobe, racist and misogynist!

He actually said while campaigning that he would keep the existing illness part. I'm sure you can find it on YouTube. He said it at least one rally that I watched and maybe even more. But he did say it.

Best choice in my book. Ben and Donald will be pro free market and that's going to go toward a red market insurance like we had before so we can afford it.

Bad for the extra 10k gov't administrators Ocare hired, but that's how it goes.
