Dr. Carson defends ‘slavery’ comments

Dr. Ben Carson, retired neurosurgeon, conservative speaker and 2016 GOP presidential hopeful, appeared on Fox & Friends in May and defended comments he made last fall at the Values Voters Summit that Obamacare “is the worst thing that has happened to this nation since slavery.”

“The issue that I was bringing up is not slavery,” Carson said. “The issue is that we have taken the most important thing we have as free Americans and turned it over to the government.”

“You go and look at the neo-Marxist literature, and see what they say,” he continued, “and the need, in order to bring America in line with everybody else, to make the populace dependent.”
