Dr. Ben Carson Calls Obamacare ‘Worst Thing Since Slavery’ At Values Voter Summit

Source: Matt Wilstein / Mediaite

Rush Limbaugh and George Will aren’t the only conservatives comparing the Affordable Care Act to slavery. At today’s Values Voter Summer, Dr. Ben Carson, fresh off signing a new contributor contract with Fox News, told the crowd that Obamacare is “the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery.”

In fact, Carson said, “in a way, it is slavery, because it is making all of us subservient to the government.” He went to explain that the Affordable Care Act “was never about health care, it was about control.” For Carson it all comes down to a quote from Vladimir Lenin, who said, “Socialized medicine is the keystone to the establishment of a socialized state.” He dismissed the notion that he was “paranoid” for bringing up Lenin, saying, “if you know anything about history, how could you not bring it up?”

Carson became one of the most prominent voices against the Affordable Care Act when he denounced the law to President Obama’s face back in February. While his name was being thrown around by some as a possible Republican presidential candidate for 2016, he has so far decided to speak out against Obamacare as a member of the media instead.

    There will always be your Clarence Thomas, Dr. Ben Carson. These are individuals who forgot just how they got where they are. The color on the outside could not change but the color on the inside definitely changed.

      I doubt if these individuals “forgot” how they got where they are… It’s called HARD WORK. They worked their butts off to get where they are today. It wasn’t just “handed” to them! But because they don’t agree wth YOUR beliefs or have the same political views as you, their “inside color” has changed?? Talk about racism!

        Mr. Guest, this has nothing to do with racism in your spectrum of thinking. However, after saying that people of color would understand where I’m coming from. No offense, but if you have not walked in our shoes, then you simply don’t know and will never understand.

    Isn’t he Black? I thought he was. Oh, well, guess not.

    I can believe it, most physicians don’t have a clue on how healthcare is financed, as a medical biller, I see people who are uninsured going to the ER everyday. We are paying for this service as tax prayers, but people like him are too smart to see that is cost more money to go to the ER then to have medical coverage for these people. He don’t even realize he would get paid more for his services when more people have healthcare.

    MR. CARSON SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HIMSELF, AS IF HE COULDN’T FIND SOMETHING ELSE TO COMPARE OBAMACARE TO AND BEING A BLACK MAN WHO HAS LIVED IN THIS COUNTRY AND EXPERIENCED SOME OF THE THINGS WE AS AFRICAN AMERICANS HAVE HAD TO EXPERIENCE HE DON’T EVEN DESERVE THE ATTENTION, HE IS SEEKING. I KNOW OUR CIVIL RIGHTS LEADERS AND THOSE THAT HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES FOR THE MOVEMENT ARE TURNING OVER IN THEIR GRAVES. HE NEEDS TO STAY OFF FAUX NEWS AND STOP PICKING UP THEIR BAD HABITS.

    Personally, I believe Dr. Ben Carson, with all of his scholastic and career achievements, is depleted of genuine love and empathy for others. I am sure his family and friends are longing for Dr. Carson to be that light in darkness, and God fearing man they once knew.

    • karasinger

      Exactly, they ONCE KNEW. I know him too, and am greatly disappointed to hear him speak this way.

  • Braxton78

    Very vague report. Due to Dr. Carson’s politics and personal beliefs he is cast out. Double standard.
