HIGHLIGHTS FROM DR. CARSON’S SPEECH

Dr. Carson spoke about the U.S. debt:

One of our big problems right now … our deficit is our a big problem … Our national debt, 16 and a half trillion dollars — you think that’s not a lot of money? Count one number per second, … you know how long it would take to count to one trillion — 507,000 years!

Dr. Carson talked about a simpler taxation system:

What we need to do is come up with something that’s simple. And when I pick up my Bible, you know what I see? I see the fairest individual in the universe — God — and he’s given us a system. It’s called a tithe.

We don’t necessarily have to do 10% but it’s the principle. He didn’t say if your crops fail, don’t give me any tithe. He didn’t say if you have a bumper crop, give me triple tithe. So there must be something inherently fair about proportionality. You make $10 billion, you put in a billion. You make $10 you put in one. Of course, you’ve got to get rid of the loopholes. Some people say, ‘Well that’s not fair because it doesn’t hurt the guy who made $10 billion as much as the guy who made 10.’ Where does it say you’ve got to hurt the guy? He just put a billion dollars in the pot. We don’t need to hurt him. It’s that kind of thinking that has resulted in 602 banks in the Cayman Islands. That money needs to be back here building our infrastructure and creating jobs.

Dr. Carson proposed an alternative to ObamaCare:

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 contributed — pretax — from the time you’re born ’til the time you die. When you die, you can pass it on to your family members, so that when you’re 85 years old and you got six diseases, you’re not trying to spend up everything. You’re happy to pass it on and there’s nobody talking about death panels. Number one.

And also, for the people who were indigent who don’t have any money we can make contributions to their HSA each month because we already have this huge pot of money. Instead of sending it to some bureaucracy, let’s put it in their HSAs. Now they have some control over their own health care.
