“Ben Carson’s life story and his career in medicine are very impressive, but the full measure of his statements on economic liberty seems to indicate significant inconsistencies,” said Club for Growth President David McIntosh. “For example, Carson has sharply criticized Obamacare, but has promoted a de facto nationalization of private health insurers. Likewise, he has called for needed entitlement reform, and yet recommends a new government-run catastrophic care program. Contradictions such as these have made it impossible for the Club for Growth to conclude that Dr. Carson would be a pro-growth president.”
