Speaking at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, DC, today, Dr. Ben Carson declared Obamacare “the worst thing that’s happened in this nation since slavery.”

Fox News contributor Dr. Carson, a former professor of Oncology and director of pediatric neurosurgery at John Hopkins University and University, told the audience:

“Obamacare is the worst thing that’s happened in this nation since slavery. And, it is slavery in a way because it’s making us subservient to the government. And, it was never about health care; it’s about control.”

“The only way to be free is to be brave,” Carson concluded.
