Ben Carson Says He Won’t End Medicare

Republican Ben Carson on Sunday rejected the notion that he will end Medicare if he is elected president.

“Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace asked Carson if his plan was to end the program, which serves 49 million senior citizens.

“That’s completely false, Carson said. “That’s a narrative someone’s putting out there to scare people.”

Carson said the program he’s outlined uses health savings accounts starting from the time a person is born until their death to largely eliminate the needs for people to be dependent on government programs.

“I would never get rid of the programs,” he said
