I was recently talking to a buddy of mine about the tragic Supreme Court ruling on Obamacare. And, during that conversation, the upcoming presidential election was mentioned, with the anticipated possibility of Dr. Ben Carson becoming president.
I mentioned that, as great as that would be, if a different Republican candidate would happen to win the presidency, the more thrilling scenario would be for Dr. Carson to be appointed the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services.
I’m sure that many people are unaware that, throughout the Obamacare bill, the phrase “as the Secretary shall determine” is mentioned over and over again. The bill, as it is written, gives the secretary tremendous power over how the bill is implemented, as well as the power to make changes to it.
If Dr. Carson were to become the secretary, he could realistically dismantle the entire bill from the inside, basically rendering it impotent, and there would be nothing that anyone can do to prevent it.
