Earlier I blogged about Ben Carson and his remarkable speech at the President’s Prayer Breakfast. We have already looked at his views on taxation.
How about his views on health:
“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 contributedâ€”pretaxâ€”from the time you’re born ’til the time you die. If you die, you can pass it on to your family members, and there’s nobody talking about death panels. We can make contributions for people who are indigent. Instead of sending all this money to some bureaucracy, let’s put it in their HSAs. Now they have some control over their own health care. And very quickly they’re going to learn how to be responsible.”
If you haven’t already watched his speech in full, please do so now.
