Controversial physician-turned political commentator Ben Carson has claimed that Obamacare is the worst thing to happen to America ‘since slavery’.
The incoming Fox News contributor made the statement during a fiery speech at the annual Values Voter Summit in Washington on Friday.
Carson also added fuel to the speculative fire that he intends to run for presidency in 2016.
‘You know Obamacare is really, I think, the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery,’ he said.
‘And it is in a way, it is slavery in a way, because it is making all of us subservient to the government, and it was never about health care – It was about control.’
