Renowned pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson cautioned on Thursday that putting the embattled IRS in charge of overseeing Obamacare was "probably not going to be good" and said that it was not too late to stop the Affordable Care Act.

"Unfortunately, we don’t seem to be learning from our mistakes," Carson, director of pediatric neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, told Neil Cavuto on Fox News. "It's very clear that the government is too large. People don't know what's going on. The president doesn’t know what's going on. None of his top people know what's going on."

"You're going to take all these people who don't know what's going on and put them in charge of the largest expansion of government in history," Carson said. "It's hard to imagine what's going to happen, but it's probably not going to be good."

He suggested that legislators should now say "we're moving in the wrong direction" and "take stock of what we've learned here and use our collective intellect to figure out a way out of this rather than just continuing down a path of destruction."

Under Obamacare, 47 separate provisions involve the Internal Revenue Service. It is the second largest agency, after the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, charged with carrying out the act.

The IRS has to implement Obamacare's required purchase of health coverage, checking whether millions of Americans are in compliance.

Carson noted that before Obamacare was signed into law in 2010, 250 million Americans had health insurance.

"Eighty percent of them were happy with it," he told Cavuto. "I suspect, a year from now, if you ask that question, there's not going to be anywhere near that many people who will have health insurance that they will be happy with.

"It's just getting worse," Carson added. "There's still time to stop."
