Carson: Obamacare Is Worse Than 9/11
Dr. Ben Carson, the Republican right’s favorite African-American neurosurgeon, often says that President Obama’s health care law is the worst thing since slavery. But in my recent interview with the good doctor—who is riding high in the presidential preliminaries, having come in a close second to Sen. Ted Cruz this past weekend in the Republican Leadership Conference’s much-ballyhooed straw poll—he upped the ante. He claimed that Obamacare has been even more damaging to the United States than the terrorist attacks of 9/11. “You said Obamacare was the worst thing since slavery. Why do you think it was worse than 9/11?” I asked him. “Because 9/11 is an isolated incident,” he answered.I guess the longest war in the history of the United States is an "isolated incident" too.
