JUAN WILLIAMS (CO-HOST): What about these 20 million people who got coverage [through the Affordable Care Act]? What about the people who said I like keeping my kid on until 26? What about people with pre-existing conditions? Oh no, well you can't take care of them because we have no mandate. Which I know is a big objection of yours. And we don't have a plan. And so, even President-elect Trump once said, you can't just put these people out on the street. 

ERIC BOLLING (CO-HOST): They're not on the street. You still have Medicare and Medicaid. So that's always going to be there. And you have emergency rooms which we had before. Until another plan is floated, that's acceptable.
