Dr. Ben Carson warns all Americans that he personally is having "great difficulty" locating doctors with anything positive to say about the “Affordable” Care Law.
Speaking with Stuart Varney at the Fox News Channel, Dr. Carson mentioned that he has spoken to literally hundreds of physcians across the country about the healthcare law. In his words, “not one liked President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law.
Dr. Carson added, "It's profoundly affecting what they are doing. People didn't sign up to become government employees. They signed up because they were intellectually gifted and wanted to use those gifts, to bring health to their patients, not to satisfy some bureaucrat."
Interestingly, the retired pediatric neurosurgeon, who is a staunch Republican (unusual for blacks), is seriously considering a run for president in 2016.
In his opinion, "It requires real planning. You have to get experts. You have to realize that you aren't the expert at everything, but that you have to have access to them and you have to know how to coordinate them. Why they weren't able to do this with something that is one sixth of our economy makes you scratch your head."
Carson retired in May from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore. His first splash on the national scene was attacking the president's policies at a keynote address at a Prayer Breakfast.
It became memorable because the president was only feet away from him during his diatribe against him and his administration.
He followed that national notoriety when he told the conservative Values Voter Summit that Obamacare is "the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery."
If not president, he appears to be an ideal candidate for vice-president with so many others already burying him with their own campaign coffers brimming.
