Carson: Obamacare is worse than 9/11

Fox News pundit and tea party favorite Ben Carson says Obamacare is worse for the country than the terrorist attacks on 9/11.

Yeah, because millions getting access to health coverage who didn’t have it before is JUST LIKE 3000 people being killed.

Ben Carson speaks to NBC

In an interview with The Daily Beast, Republican presidential hopeful and Fox News contributor Ben Carson said that the Affordable Care Act — also known as “Obamacare” — is worse for the U.S. than the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Carson made headlines last fall when he told the assembled crowd at the 2013 Values Voters Summit that Obamacare is “the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery.”

The conservative darling was promoting his new book One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America’s Future when he agreed to speak to the Beast’s Evan Gahr, who asked, “You said Obamacare was the worst thing since slavery. Why do you think it was worse than 9/11?”

“Because 9/11 is an isolated incident,” Carson replied.
