Surgeon Speaks Truth to Power

It is great to see someone speak truth to the face of power and that is exactly what Dr. Benjamin Carson did in his recent speech at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast with President Obama sitting right next to him. In a respectful and polite way, he deconstructed so much of the Obama agenda. It is 26 minutes long but worth every minute. My favorite moment comes about 20 minutes in when the doctor explains that most of America’s health care problems could be solved by empowered patients using health savings accounts. Obama is looking at his watch by this point. Another great moment is his discussion of taxation and fairness.
