Herman Cain claimed that he would “be dead” if he had been treated for his cancer under the Affordable Care Act. Speaking in Lexington, SC on Thursday, Cain explained that the health care law would have limited his choice of doctors and prevented him from receiving medical treatment:
CAIN: If ObamaCare had been fully implemented when I caught cancer, I’d be dead and here is why. I was able to go to the doctors that I wanted to go to, as fast as they could do the test. I didn’t have to wait six months like they do in other countries before they get a CAT scan. And sometimes people die before they get the CAT scan, because the cancer spread so fast. But because I was able to get the treatment as soon as I could and get quality care that I did, that’s what kept me alive today.
