In today’s American Spectator I discuss why Ben Carson is the only leading candidate for the GOP presidential nomination who has the credibility and the commitment to cut this tumor out of the body politic:
Obamacare’s survival is not a given, despite claims by the Democrats and their media allies … Most Americans still disapprove of it, and many of the law’s provisions are unpopular even with important Democrat constituencies … Yet, only one of the three leading candidates for the GOP presidential nomination has both the credibility and a serious commitment to getting rid of Obamacare — Ben Carson.
What about Trump and Fiorina?
Donald Trump, who leads the GOP race according to the RCP polling average, favors single-payer. Until recently, Carly Fiorina supported the hated individual mandate. Only Carson has been consistently and vehemently opposed to the law: In 2013 he compared it to slavery: ‘It was never about health care. It was about control.’
This wasn’t bluster from a career politician. Carson is a neurosurgeon with intimate knowledge of our health care system. To read the rest of the column, click here.
