Fox darling Dr. Ben Carson intimated that he sees the veterans suffering in the VA scandal as little more than political pawns today. Carson announced on Fox News that the VA problems are “a gift from God” to enlighten us about what’s wrong with public-run health care. Then he lectured all politicians to stop playing politics with our country’s problems.
On America’s News HQ today, host Uma Pemmaraju asked Carson, “There are those who are saying what’s happening now is also a preview of what we might see once the ObamaCare system is fully in place in this country.”
But, apparently, Carson was too busy polishing his conservative cred (and potential Republican candidacy) to do any actual research into how “the people” (not to mention veterans) feel. He replied:
I think what’s happening with the veterans is a gift from God to show us what happens when you take layers and layers of bureaucracy and place them between the patients and the health care provider. And if we can’t get it right, with the relatively small number of veterans, how in the world are you going to do it with the entire population? You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure this out.
Ironically, Carson then began scolding politicians for playing politics rather than solving problems. Carson added:
We need seriousness here rather than just political speak. "How can I look better? How can my party look better?" And I’m saying this to both Democrats and Republicans: Stop, and think about the people. You know, you guys are servants. You’re not rulers. So first of all, get that out of your mind. And think about what can we do with the problems that we have to solve in this nation, which are substantial. Some of which threaten to actually destroy our nation.
Carson might want to consider taking his own advice before lecturing anyone else.

It should read, “ONE” stupid, where it says “not” stupid in this phrase.., “Boy you are not stupid individual.” It should read, "Boy you are one stupid individual if you still think Obama and the democratic party are the answer after this 6 year fiasco!
Have a nice day Conservatives! Keep the faith. You gotta believe in God to do that! Liberals don’t comprehend God, because they’re ungodly.
Don’t bother wasting your time on this forum folks. The dumb liberals on here are only on this page to attack the number one threat to their way of life and their game and the charade is about to be over when Dr. Ben Carson destroys Hillary Clinton and the Republican party takes back over control and the economy prospers once again with major growth! There is only so much blaming Bush this country could take for his failure and 5 years of it was enough to cast doubt, now his own actions cast the rest. The final nails have been drawn into a coffin and todays release of a soldier in Afghanistan shows his muslim bias.
Four people asked for Obama’s help in Benghazi and he did nothing and they died.
A soldiers family are pleading with Obama to help their son in Mexico who’s being beaten by guards in prison and he’s done nothing.
A muslim father asked Obama to free his son from Afghanistan, and Obama let’s go five of the most dangerous Taliban for our one guy! He’s showing his true Muslim beliefs and he’s showing his true conviction for muslims and anti America. The country got fooled once, shame on Obama! The country got fooled into believing him a second term and now shame on the country!
Now we find out this guy he just brought back may have deserted and was a muslim convert and five American soldiers lost their lives trying to find him.
Dr. Ben Carson will restore Credibility to the Office of the President Of The United States. He will end spending. He will end the Obamacare Nightmare! He will restore our nations values, and restore integrity in the United States among nations around the world and he will stop the deficit from going so astronomical that Obama had spent more than any president in the history of presidents of the united states COMBINED in just his first 4 years in office and now he’s still spending!
This game is OVER! Dems and Liberals are DONE! And you see the anger and hostility in their comments to anyone that disagrees with them. This is not a site to discuss and bring up valid points. It’s a liberal PROPAGANADA SPIN ATTACK SITE and that’s all it is. Just look at the title. What a joke! Don’t waste your time on this page folks because the liberals on it that keep chiming in are the same ones that are trying to spin for the democrat liberals. And this country has had enough of that!
BYE BYE LIBERALS!! SAY GOODNIGHT to your little game! It’s OVER!
BEMUSED! You must look in the mirror every day and be amused at what you see. Because no one buys what you’re selling. Snakeoil salesmen died years ago! Fox news is the ONLY Factual news site on TV today. The rest are controlled by the richest elite trying to gain control over everyone through propaganda! Boy you are not stupid individual if you still think Obama and the democratic party are the answer after this 6 year fiasco! What a laughing stock your party has been! What a laughing stock! You didn’t fix nothing! But surprised you didn’t charge! God knows you’re party is taxing everything else to spend!
“Now you tell me, are you going to listen to a seasoned intelligent man? Or the most distinguished association of American medical professionals? Or 99% of the world-class scientists specialised in climate studies? Or the people who actually live in countries with single-payer government-run health coverage schemes?
Or Fox News, where spin and fact-free opinion is the norm not the exception to the rule?
There, I fixed it for you. No charge.
Don’t waste your time with this propaganda.
Vote Ben Carson for TRUTH, JUSTICE and the OLD AMERICAN WAY!!! A UNIFIED AMERICA, ALL BEHIND BEN CARSON!
And don’t believe this attack on Carson and typical TWISTING of words that Carson said to try and get you to believe he meant something else. It’s typical worthless Liberal propaganda SPIN!
Off topic: I recently learned to my delighted surprise, that Hedy Lamarr (a movie star of Austrian birth) and an unknown musician-cum-piano-tuner have only recently been recognised as the inventors of the technology that makes it possible for us to use cellphones, GPS and all sorts of wireless gadgets. Their invention (during WW2) was ignored by everybody including government but it was eventually government that used it to develop some sort of missile-aiming device for naval battles. The private sector came on the scene to develop a lot of other uses using that seminal work.
“There are those who are saying…."
I have never heard Ben Carson give a “specific example” based on his medical expertise when criticizing Obamacare. Before the ACA marketplace even began open enrollment, Carson was comparing it to slavery. He has given several interviews where he has openly suggested that people read neo-Marxists literature in order to understand where his fear of Obamacare is coming from. This sounds a heck of a lot like the “over the top language” of Glenn Beck and Ayn Rand to me!
Curious to know what state your friends live in that purchased their insurance through the marketplace exchange? This has “totally not” been the experience of one of my relatives.
Next time you thank your god for his miniature mercies, don’t forget to curse his very name for the pain, suffering and misery he afflicts millions with every day of the week.
In the most unlikely event that there did happen to be a great designer, its greatest creation would have to be the most complex and powerful instrument in the known universe – the human brain. Not to make full use of this miraculous gift is not just pathetic, but sacrilege.
Unlike the veterans who get their health care from the VA, the greater population has a choice of picking their own health care provider under the ACA! This false narrative needs to stop!!!
To bad Dr. Carson didn’t enlighten us with the fact that 1.3 million veterans don’t have health insurance! That’s right! Not every veteran is entitled to receive medical care from the VA. Many republican governors chose not to expand Medicaid.
On topic: The idiots who read God’s mind suffer from SAS (selective attention syndrome). They’re always going on and on about this or that disaster being God’s message against sinners, etc. but why haven’t we heard anything about the monumental crucifix that killed a kid in Italy, only a few days before John Paul II and John 23rd were declared saints. The cross had been erected in commemoration of a visit by JP2 about 20 years ago.
Wow, he’s playing all his trump cards now!
Uncle Ben, and his co-horts Peterson, West, and the black chick with the Italian last name are modern day house slaves. If they please their masters-their GOP owners-they will reward them with money, and all expense paid trips across the country to promote the GOP “agenda” to the black community.
Bundy fan Hannocchio asked Uncle Ben to guest-host his radio show while he was in North Dakota pimping oil men for money.
The good doctor was horrible on the air. It was so bad, a few people complained about it on Hannocchio’s Facebook page.
Uncle Ben’s popularity will suffer the same fate as Herman Cain. That’s coming down the pipeline soon.
You, MR Carson, are a disgrace to the medical profession and should have your license to practice revoked.
