“Health care is not going to get less expensive,” Huckabee declared.
“We’ve got to just suck it up and accept the fact that because technology is so dramatically different,” he explained, “50 years ago medicine was house calls, it was you got penicillin and aspirin. They were still using ether in the operating rooms, and that was about the extent of anesthesia.”
“Today we have tomography,” he continued, “we have MRI, we have CAT Scans, we have extraordinary nuclear medicine. We have procedures that were unthinkable 50 years ago. But they’re very expensive, everybody wants them, everybody will feel like, ‘I need to be able to access those.’”
“Let’s quit telling people health care is going to get less expensive,” he said.
