Liberals Angry at Ben Carson for Telling the Truth about Welfare

On the heels of his gun control-Nazi comparison, Dr. Ben Carson was busy campaigning through Georgia (where people LOVE him, by the way) when he said a few things that have gotten some liberals riled up. He was in Gainesville, Georgia on Sunday speaking to a large crowd at Free Chapel, a mega church with multiple campuses, when he dropped a truth bomb about welfare.

“We shouldn’t give away our values for the sake of political correctness,” he said. Then he added that conservatives have, “no desire whatsoever to hurt the poor … but I believe in true compassion, providing the poor with a mechanism to climb the ladder of success. False compassion is patting them on the head and saying, ‘You can’t take care of yourself and I’m going to give you food stamps, a housing subsidy and free health care and all the things you need so you can stay dependent and vote for me.’”
