Ben Carson: VA Scandal A ‘Gift From God’ (VIDEO)

Dr. Ben Carson, retired neurosurgeon and Fox News contributor, on Saturday openly admitted that he’s pretty happy about the Veterans Affairs scandal.

“I think what’s happening with the veterans is a gift from God to show us what happens when you take layers and layers of bureaucracy and place them between the patients and the health care provider,” Carson said on Fox News, using the veterans hospital backlogs to criticize Obamacare. “And if we can’t get it right, with the relatively small number of veterans, how in the world are you going to do it with the entire population?”

“We need seriousness here rather than just political speak,” he said, calling on lawmakers to address healthcare issues.
