The U.S. appeals court ruling issued on Tuesday striking down the government's ability to offer Obamacare subsidies through federal insurance exchanges showed President Barack Obama was trying to "change the law at will," Dr. Ben Carson told Fox News' "America's Newsroom."

A three-judge panel ruled the government could not provide subsidies to enrollees on the Affordable Care Act insurance exchanges run by federal authorities. Carson said he expected the decision to ultimately end up at the Supreme Court.

"You can't just come along and change the law at will. Basically, that's what this [ruling] is saying," Carson, former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, said Tuesday.

Carson explained the Obama administration and the Internal Revenue Service had been "saying they could pretty much do anything they wanted" with regard to Obamacare. He said he was "very pleased" with what he was "seeing happening" as the courts decided the legalities of the healthcare law's implementation.

While Carson said he thought everyone "should have good healthcare," it didn't "have to be done through the government."

"This is really the issue — government in control of your life, or individual control, individual responsibility, which will help bring the whole medical system into the free market economic system, which will lower costs and improve quality," he said.

Carson said he was "starting to think about" a run for the White House in 2016, but maintained it "wasn't in my bucket list when I retired."
