Dr. Carson Tells Roland Martin Why ObamaCare’s The Worst Thing Since Slavery

Post  fshnski on Fri Oct 18, 2013 7:02 pm

Dr. Ben Carson made waves last week when he said that ObamaCare is the worst thing to happen to America since slavery.

On Friday, the good doctor explained to NewsOne radio’s Roland Martin why this is the case:

DR. BEN CARSON:

I didn’t say this is as bad as slavery. I said this is the worst thing since slavery. The reason I said that…

ROLAND MARTIN:

Which includes Jim Crow, which includes…

CARSON:

Yes, absolutely, including those, and I’ll tell you why I think that.

This nation was founded on the principle that it would be a new type of nation that was for, of, and by the people.

A constitution was put in place that would assure that the people remained at the pinnacle of power and that the central government would never reach the point where it had control of the people.

This fundamentally changes the relationship.


MARTIN: How so?

CARSON:

It places the government now at the pinnacle because it now is placed on a road that will give it control of everyone’s health. Your health is the most important thing that you have, and I think most of us are asleep at the wheel. We don’t actually realize what’s happening.



MARTIN: But Dr. Carson, how is the government, how’s the government controlling people’s health when you talk about providing health care. Actually aren’t individuals in control of their health in terms of wellness, in terms of how they take care of themselves?


CARSON:

Because the reality is we have a system in America that says that county hospitals – look, I cover county government, and I had to deal with this – county hospitals must see anybody who comes through that door.

And one of the things that we have seen in this country:

dramatic increases in terms of the budget, in terms of the budget gaps because of exploding healthcare costs.

And so we are paying higher property taxes and higher sales taxes as it relates to our county hospitals.

And so we’ve been funding a national healthcare system, and it hasn’t been working. So how is this somehow controlling people’s health?
