    For any black man who grew up in the 50s to say that Obamacare is worse than the Jim Crow laws has no respect for the sacrifices of civil rights movement PERIOD!!!!!

    And by the way, because his family was so poor, he grew up on medical assistance. Funny that he bashes a government program that was his family only option back then for medical coverage.

    He more so than anyone else would be in a perfect position to see the damage entitlement dependence causes.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Apologies! I interpreted "he" to mean Carson, rather than CycloneWanderer.

    Okayyy that reinforces my point


    But here is a question about the video. If the topic is pretaining to the government shutdown, why is Hannity asking him about what is Obama doing for black people ???

    Okay let me ask you this. If his family didn't have that assistance that they were on, what would they have done when they really got sick?

    Well they would of got a high income job. Everybody knows the only reason people are poor and don't have health insurance is free government stuff.

    we are all seeing it now, disability claims rising every day, extended umemployment benefits. The Obama leadership is creating a poorer more dependent class of citizens to the applause of the people that support them.

    the choices one makes in life have more to do with their future than the environment around them

    Really? So if Mitt Romney had a daughter that got pregnant at 15 and a girl with a single parent working a 20k a year job got pregnant...same choices yet drastically different impacts on their future.

    Don't you even try the WWJD card with me...Although Jesus would have advocated that we take care of those with the least among us, he wouldn't have said at the tip of a Roman spear...So that dog don't hunt. Sorry.
