Richard Carmona on Health Care
Repealing the plan would only put the burden on the people as the general public would pick up the insurance costs for the uninsured, Carmona said. "There are good things in the plan, but it needs a better business plan," he added.
Flake attempted from the start of the race to tie Carmona to Obama particularly and Democratic policies in general. And it's a fight Flake continued [in this debate], arguing that Carmona's positions, ranging from earmarks to healthcare, reflected the position of the Obama administration.
