Ben Carson’s medical coalition

GOP candidate Ben Carson, who is currently in the no. 2 spot to Donald Trump’s no. 1, rolled out a coalition of 32 medical experts from across the country advising his 2016 campaign.

The group is comprised of various doctors, professors, authors and policy experts across several medical fields. Carson unveiled this group at a press conference in Iowa.

Carson specifically noted that he wants everyone, no matter their socioeconomic status, but disagreed with Obamacare for other reasons.

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.”

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Senator from Florida Marco Rubio have been the only two Republican candidates to describe a detailed healthcare plan to replace Obamacare.
