A house call President Obama wishes he could cancel: Neurosurgeon Criticizes Obamacare at National Prayer Breakfast
Washington, D.C. — Renowned neurosurgeon Ben Carson is a self-described foe of political correctness and he proved it on Thursday: During the National Prayer Breakfast, he criticized Obamacare with Barack Obama sitting just two seats away from him.
Dr. Carson is director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.
In a wide-ranging speech that was inspirational and patriotic, Carson — who came from a poverty stricken background — touched on the need to accept personal responsibility, education, faith, runaway Washington’s spending, reforming the tax code without engaging in class warfare, and other issues.
You’ll note what appears to be a lot of negative body language coming from President Obama during Carson’s address.
Without referring to the law specifically, Dr. Carson’s comments about making the heathcare delivery system more efficient as opposed to more bureaucratic under Obamacare start at about the 21-minue mark:
“Here’s my solution: When a person is born, give him a birth certificate, an electronic medical record, and a health savings account to which money can be contributed — pretax — from the time you’re born ’til the time you die. When you die, you can pass it on to your family members, so that when you’re 85 years old and you got six diseases, you’re not trying to spend up everything. You’re happy to pass it on and there’s nobody talking about death panels.

'2016: Obama's America' DVDs Mailed to Hundreds of Lawmakers (Exclusive)
The movie has been a good predictor of Obama's behavior and of the policies these lawmakers will be dealing with, so we sent it to them," says filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza.
While President Barack Obama was finishing up the State of the Union address during a nationally televised speech Tuesday night, hundreds of copies of a DVD featuring an interview with his impoverished half-brother were being mailed to senators, congressmen, the governors of all 50 states and the nine Supreme Court justices.
One copy of the movie, 2016: Obama’s America, also was mailed to the president at his White House address and another went to Vice President Joe Biden.
“Can a new film help derail the current push for amnesty for illegal aliens? Chris Burgard’s new movie “Border” is so good that it could dramatically affect the public debate. But because you can’t expect the major media to cover this shocking and poignant film, the challenge will be to make sure millions of Americans get a chance to see it. It tells the story of a war—a war just as important, if not more so, than the one in Iraq.” - Andy Selepak, Accuracy in Media
"... you can't see this film without acquiring a deeper understanding of America's illegal immigration problem and a renewed determination to do something about it... “ — HUMAN EVENTS
BORDER, is an award winning movie by filmmaker Chris Burgard. He took heat for packing a .45 as he filmed armed Mexican drug cartels crossing the Arizona border. He uncovers the real story that President Obama and our politicians do not want Americans to hear. As a new push for amnesty descends upon America, and the Second Amendment is yet again under attack, BORDER proves that truth is the greatest tool of a free American people.
