Neurosurgeon Lectures President Obama on Healthcare, Flat Tax

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.

Here's a link to the speech.
