In a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, Pediatric Neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson delivered a 26-minute lesson on smaller government, the flat tax, and putting healthcare in the hands of the people and not in the hands of government.
As President Obama and Vice-President Biden sat just feet away, Dr. Carson
said that he could solve the issue of healthcare by giving everyone a Health
Savings Account (HSA) at birth. Individuals could contribute funds into the account
on a pretax basis and pay for their own healthcare. Whatever money was left in
their account when they died could be passed along to their beneficiaries.
