Dr. Benjamin Carson worked in health care long enough to know whether Obamacare is right for this country.

We hear you, Sharon. Thousands of you chimed in on the comments to our post, many already suffering from the symptoms of higher premiums and reduced hours thanks to Obamacare.

Sorry, Sarah. You’re not alone [8].

And others like Carson who work in health care see some of the same problems.

Some knew the doctor personally from his 39 years as director of pediatric neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, and only had good things to say about him:

It is clear Carson has many fans among our Facebook followers. Perhaps you first heard him speak at the National Prayer Breakfast [13] this year, but his work—as a neurosurgeon, in the bioethics field, and as founder of the Carson Scholars Fund [14]—has earned him praise for years. And as many of you commented on our page, he has written several books—and even inspired a movie—that you might want to check out.
