Dr. Mehmet Oz offers a grim diagnosis of Obamacare: President Barack Obama’s healthcare law is “half good.” The host of the “Dr. Oz Show” contends that the solution to healthcare problems in America will not be found in Washington but in “our homes,” CNSNews.com reported.

The nation’s healthcare law, which about 60 percent of the nation’s states are challenging in lawsuits and other venues, “does what it we need to do in terms of getting access healthcare for a lot of folks, and as a doctor, I take care of a lot of people without coverage,“ Oz said. “The problem is we got to figure some way out of dealing with the expenses of healthcare, and that’s not going to happen in Washington. That’s going to happen in our homes, in our living rooms, in our kitchens, and in our bedrooms.”

Story continues below video.



America has become “healthier as a country,” Oz told CNS News on the red carpet of the White House Correspondents dinner April 30. The country must provide a safety net for those without healthcare, he said.
 
“The most expensive thing in healthcare is bad healthcare. Bad quality care and people who get bad quality care tend to be folks without insurance because there’s no doctors taking care of them, so if you want to provide an inexpensive system that provides efficiency and at a high quality of care so you cut costs, you’ve got to provide a safety net,” he said.
