Ben Carson: An American Hero

Some moths ago I posted his life story about living in a ghetto as a boy without a father in the home and a mother who was illiterate who insisted her sons get an education.  The mother worked as a maid and raised a son who became America’s best neurosurgeon.  I hope this video will entice you to visit the other posts I have on him and comment about whether he deserves this harassment from the IRS because he opposes the way Obamacare is being implemented.  He has a much better plan to bring health care costs down that will help all Americans.  Please investigate the following videos too.

Former Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Ben Carson reportedly got a surprise visit from the IRS after he sharply criticized Washington public policy, including Obamacare, at a gathering that included President Barack Obama.

Carson told business leaders and elected officials in Alabama on Monday night that his first-ever “encounter” with the agency followed his fiery speech at a National Prayer Breakfast in February, Yellow Hammer News reported.

The February speech went viral on YouTube because the biting critique of major White House policies, including taxation and Obamacare, was calmly delivered with Obama sitting just a few feet away, The Daily Caller reported Tuesday.

Although the speech made him a conservative darling, it apparently earned him a little attention from the taxman as well. The embattled agency came under attack just three months later, in May, when it was accused of singling out tea party groups for scrutiny.

Carson never divulged the outcome of his visit from the IRS.

The scandal-scarred IRS, however, continues to be very much on the minds of Americans, a new poll showed.

According to Rasmussen’s survey, most Americans think the IRS broke the law by targeting tea party groups for harassment, but few expect it to be punished.

Fifty-three percent think the IRS broke the law by targeting the tea party and other conservative groups, like the voter-integrity organization True The Vote; 24 percent disagreed. But only 17 percent said it is even somewhat likely that anyone will be charged, while 74 percent said criminal charges are unlikely.

Veteran IRS official Lois Lerner retired last month amid congressional investigations into the conservative targeting by the taxman.

  1. Dr. Carson is exactly right about speaking up and saying why he disagrees while still being respectful. The IRS shouldn’t have done anything, and they should have been punished for doing so. Here is the link to a video of his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast with President Obama Present: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFb6NU1giRA

  2. Dr. Carson is an incredible man that is not afraid like most people to stand up and disagree and respectively argue. The IRS should be punished for these kinds of acts. Here is a link to Dr. Carson’s speech at the National Prayer Breakfast: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFb6NU1giRA

  4. I never really followed this, but from what ive read and heard I think the IRS stepped over their boundaries. If there was no discrepancies with Ben Carson’s taxes then why was he questioned? Though we cant 100% say it was because of his statements, it wouldn’t be a stretch to believe that in fact it was the case , partially due to many other people being targeted too. Carson did the right thing, he informed people of his issue, which hopefully will allow the people to reflect on our government.

  5. What happened to our right to freedom of speech? Should we Americans feel threated to experss oursselves and to stand up for our rights? We do live in a “free” country do we not? We have laws in place set by our Constitiution that allow us citizens to do so. It’s the same Constitution the President vowed an oath to preserve and to protect. How unfortunate that politicians feel they are above the law and take it upon themselves to “bully” an American citizen. Kudos to Dr. Ben Carson for takinga stand.

  6. Dr. Ben Carson Got a lot of “Chutzpah” to criticize the president who was sitting few feet away, Unfortunately CNN will not host him or MSNBC, but he is always hosted by Fox news as a contributor.
