Dr. Ben Carson has become one of the most liked individuals in the Republican party. He’s insanely smart, well-tempered, and he’s certainly someone America respects in regards to healthcare.
Dr. Carson has just indicated that he will be helping President Trump craft a replacement for Obamacare, which has been one of the cornerstones and promises of Trump’s presidential campaign.
Ben Carson says he’s still ironing out his role in the incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump, but one thing’s certain: He’ll have a role in helping craft the replacement plan for Obamacare.
“I think the replacement obviously must come first and it must be something that is very appealing and easy to understand. And then, only then, would you dismantle what’s in place,” the retired neurosurgeon said in an interview.
Asked if he intends to be involved in designing that plan, Carson said, “Yes, of course.”
Carson, who ran against Trump in the Republican presidential primary, burst onto the national scene in 2013 when he rebuked Barack Obama’s health care law at the National Prayer breakfast, while the president sat a few feet away. He declined to say whether he was in line for a Cabinet role such as secretary of health and human services, or a broader advisory role.
