KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE, ‘ON THE RECORD’ GUEST HOST: Should we scrap Obamacare and start all over?
Hello, everyone. I’m Kimberly Guilfoyle, in for Greta Van Susteren.
Growing uncertainty and fear as a big ObamaCare deadline approaches.
Doctor Ben Carson is here to go ON THE RECORD.
Good evening, Doctor.
What can doctors and patients do to protect themselves?
DR. CARSON, PROFESSOR EMERITUS OF NEUROSURGERY: Well, you know, this is a pretty difficult situation, you know, people are obviously fearful because there was willful misrepresentation. You know, you can keep your doctor, you can keep your insurance and it’s rolling out. People are seeing that that is not the case. People are seeing that if you can’t make a website work after three years, how in the world are you going to deal with millions of health records and keep anything straight? I mean, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that’s just not going to happen. And the bill is so complex, we keep finding more and more things in it that somebody obviously didn’t know about.
If we really want to solve it, it’s going to take more than just doctors and patients. It’s going to take a willingness to be honest. And I know that may be a difficult thing in Washington, D.C. But, the fact of the matter is, we just need to recognize that this bill was passed because the facts were not on the table. So, if deceit is used to get a bill passed, is it really even legitimate? If we want to be honest, let’s sit down and put all the facts on the table and then re-vote and see if it happens. Or, alternatively and preferably, let’s just sit down as a bipartisan group and work it out. We can do that.
CARSON: That’s the American way.
GUILFOYLE: Yeah, of course. That’s what should have been done to begin with to avoid some of these inaccuracies and the American people being mislead. Now the president and his administration and those he has put the American people’s heath, faith and trust in have let us down. Should we trust them to take us to the next step whether so far all we have got is a failure to launch?
CARSON: There isn’t anything to indicate that there is any change of heart. When there is a change of heart, when some humility, when some concern for the masses rather than concern for your poll numbers comes into play, yes, I would be happy to give another chance. But let’s do it the right way.
