Dr. Benjamin Carson Addresses National Prayer Breakfast and Lectures Barack Obama on Obamacare … “When a person is born, give him a birth certificate, an electronic medical record, and a health savings account” (Update: Left Goes Mental Over the Truth & Carson’s Comments)
Barack Obama gets an earful on Obamacare from famed Baltimore neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson.
Last week during the National Prayer Breakfast, neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson criticized President Barack Obama, Obamacare and the governments intrusion in healthcare. All the while as President Obama sat in the audience. It is too bad that Obama could probably not hear a word of what this educated man was saying. After listening to Dr. Benjamin Carson all I could take from him is why is not this man the president of the United States? His discussion on the dangers of “political correctness”. He stated PC was dangerous as it because the unanimity of speech and though is bad. This country was founded on freedom or thought and freedom of expression. PC muzzles people and keeps people from discussing important issues. With Obama less than 5 feet away, Dr. Carson criticized Obamacare and encouraged a program where newborn babies are given health savings account as an alternative to Obamacare.
If you have never watched one YouTube video, you need to watch this one.It is fascinating, informational and inspirational. Carson’s discussion on education is tremendous. Think back to slavery, it was illegal to educate a slave. Why was that? Because, to educate a man, liberates a man. Amen brother. What he is talking about is to have a public educated, so that they never become victims and dependent upon a government.
Simply amazing, as Barack Obama looked on, Carson basically dismantled Obama’s class warfare and “fairness” doctrine before his very eyes. Oh to have really known what Obama was thinking as Carson ripped Obama’s ridiculous and divisive ”hurt the rich” and “class warfare” … “Some people say, ‘Well that’s not fair because it doesn’t hurt the guy who made $10 billion as much as the guy who made 10.’ Where does it say you’ve got to hurt the guy? He just put a billion dollars in the pot”.
From Real Clear Politics:
DR. CARSON: What we need to do is come up with something simple. And when I pick up my Bible, you know what I see? I see the fairest individual in the universe, God, and he’s given us a system. It’s called a tithe. We don’t necessarily have to do 10% but it’s the principle. He didn’t say if your crops fail, don’t give me any tithe or if you have a bumper crop, give me triple tithe. So there must be something inherently fair about proportionality. You make $10 billion, you put in a billion. You make $10 you put in one. Of course you’ve got to get rid of the loopholes. Some people say, ‘Well that’s not fair because it doesn’t hurt the guy who made $10 billion as much as the guy who made 10.’ Where does it say you’ve got to hurt the guy? He just put a billion dollars in the pot. We don’t need to hurt him. It’s that kind of thinking that has resulted in 602 banks in the Cayman Islands. That money needs to be back here building our infrastructure and creating jobs.
DR. CARSON: Here’s my solution: When a person is born, give him a birth certificate, an electronic medical record, and a health savings account to which money can be contributed — pretax — from the time you’re born ’til the time you die. When you die, you can pass it on to your family members, so that when you’re 85 years old and you got six diseases, you’re not trying to spend up everything. You’re happy to pass it on and there’s nobody talking about death panels. Number one. And also, for the people who were indigent who don’t have any money we can make contributions to their HSA each month because we already have this huge pot of money. Instead of sending it to some bureaucracy, let’s put it in their HSAs. Now they have some control over their own health care.
It is really too bad that this man is not more prominent than he is. His thoughts and vision is remarkable. He is an individual who should be considered a hero, not sports athletes , singers or actors. This man is the real deal. Carson’s role model was Jesus. Dr. Benjamin Carson for President!!!
UPDATE I: Looks like the LEFT considers Dr. Carson a racist for daring to question and criticize Obama, the first black president. Oh Wait, Dr. Carson is a man of color as well.
The Libs at CNN did not take too much time in trying to attack Dr. Benjamin Carson for his comments and come to the aid of their liberal savior and daddy, President Barack Hussein Obama. As reported at Mediaite, on Sunday, the panel guests on CNN’s State of the Union weighed in on whether it was appropriate for Carson to use the forum of the prayer breakfast to advocate for free market reforms to healthcare and a flat tax code. What’s the matter, the liberal and bias MSM cannot stand some one calling out Obama’s divisive, class warfare doctrine? Especially when the individual who did it was black? I guess this makes Dr. Carson a racist. Isn’t anyone who dares differ with Obama considered a racist? How sad that Democrats just not get the message that its better to teach an individual to fish, rather than just give some one fish. The fact that the Democrat on the panel made this about partisan politics, rather than the common sense that Dr. Carson was espousing just shows what Democrats are really after … class warfare and a dependent government class of people who are uneducated and forced to remain on the Democrat plantation.
Crowley turned to Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) and asked if she found “anything offensive” in Carson’s speech.
“I think that there is a political correctness that he was trying to use to appeal to a conservative audience,” Schakowsky said. “I think it’s really not really an appropriate place to make this kind of political speech and to invoke God as his support for that kind of view.”
Schakowsky concluded by saying that Carson’s message displayed an “empathy gap” between where the American propel are and where Carson, and other conservatives, want the nation to go. “We need to have an economy that works for everyone,” she concluded.

Ben Carson is one of the most remarkable people of our time – or any other time. If you haven’t read his book, _Gifted Hands_, you need to. He was an angry kid from a broken home. He was violent to his mother, and ended up stabbing another kid with a knife. Fortunately, the kid was wearing a heavy belt buckle that “saved” both of their lives. He became the leading pediatric neurosurgeon in the world and is an inspiration to anyone who bothers to learn about his life.
Good for the doctor.
This is exactly how all conservatives when given the opportunity should speak.
It isn’t the color of your skin that matters, it is what is in your value system and how that is applied to how you live. There are plenty of people of all races that do not believe in progressive/communist/socialist principles.

Good for the doctor!
It is about time that someone with some real American values boxed Zero’s ears about his socialist/communist beliefs and policies.
It isn’t the color of your skin that matters, it is the value system you hold for yourself and others. Obama has none since he didn’t earn or look for any.

It took a while but the left are finally responding to Dr. Carson incredible uncompromising but respectful speech at the National Prayer Breakfast.
Which Cable News Host Asked Guests If They Thought There Was ‘Anything Offensive’ in Ben Carson’s Speech?
Feb. 10, 2013 1:00pm
The 25-minute faith-filled address tackled issues from education to personal responsibility, with video of the event quickly going viral leading to praise from conservative audiences and column in the Wall Street Journal titled ‘Ben Carson for President.’ Among most publications considered to be left-leaning though, the buzz-worthy speech went underreported or ignored. Left-of-center Fox News commentators Bob Beckel and Kirsten Powers called the speech “disgraceful,” and “incredibly rude to the president.”
On CNN’s State of the Union Sunday, host Candy Crowley went so far to ask guests if they found “anything offensive” from Carson’s speech considering the venue where he gave his remarks.
“I think that there is a political correctness that he was trying to use to appeal to a conservative audience,” Illinois Democratic Rep. Jan Schakowsky responded. “I think it’s really–not really an appropriate place to make this kind of political speech, and to invoke God as his support for that kind of view.
Exactly. How dare Dr. Carson lecture the Poser-in-Chief at a prayer breakfast.
Why, all the Democrats agree that the POTUS is the smartest man in the history of the world, in the UNIVERSE!
Who does Dr. Carson think he is, a BRAIN SURGEON???
Benjamin Carson: “If There Was a party called the The Logic Party I Would Be a Member of That.”
What a remarkable man!!! And what a contrast between him and that ignoramus who occupies the White House and who was also on the dais!!!
Of course the LEFT is going to go bananas upon hearing the truth!
There it is, plain and simple. Oh, the AGONY and PAIN of being confronted with REALITY staring us right in the face.
I am so proud that someone in a prominent position can finally toss PC BS and caution to the wind and TELL IT LIKE IT IS on National TV.
STANDING OVATTION for Dr. Carson! LOVE THIS GUY
I actually replayed the video again I love this Man so much.
Absolutely LOVE him. And, yes- his role model is Jesus, the LORD and Our Savior.
I love how he addressed the “PC Police”. What a great Man, and Yes, I would so vote for a Man like this to be our future President.
The difference between Dr. Carson and the current occupier of the White House is that physicians take an oath to “do no harm.”
“From no on on I want transcript before anymore guests so we can get my guysin here.”
Doctor slams debt, health care in front of president

What a silly collection of comments we have here. Carson is certainly free to run for office and try to get a majority of representatives, senators, and supreme court justices to agree with him. The political correctness here is the refusal to see that the nation is not about one person wants; it is about what most of us can agree to as we continue to struggle toward a more perfect union.
SM: They were not silly until you made a comment. There is hardly PC on this site, if anything just the opposite. Actually Dr. Carson has the right to voice his opinion and question the leaders of the country and the President. I know you, like Obama. may not like the US Constitution but it provides us Freedom of Speech.
Actually, its about a President and a party and news media in lockstep that are hell-bent on destroying everything that made America great.
