NBC’s David Gregory went after Dr. Ben Carson today on Meet the Press over his comments comparing Obamacare to slavery. Dr. Carson schooled him.
“First, recognize what I said. The worst thing since slavery. I didn’t say it was slavery… In a way anything is slavery that robs you of control of running your own life. And, when you take the most important thing you have which is your health care, and you put that in the hands of government bureaucrats, I think you have done the wrong thing. And, as I was about to say, you go back and look at the neo-Marxist literature and look at what they say, you don’t have to look at what I say, about taking control of the health care of a populace and making the people dependent. This is not what America is about.”
