Dr. Ben Carson, who made nationwide headlines for remarks during the National Prayer Breakfast that flew in the face of President Obama’s economic policies, said Sunday he has no regrets.
Mr. Carson drew national attention for several comments he made just feet from where Mr. Obama sat, particularly his claim that God only asked for 10 percent from believers, in the form of a tithe. The federal government could go far by following that same economic principle, he suggested, rather than imposing more progressive policies that targeted the wealthy.
Some conservatives have suggested that Mr. Carson, a pediatric neurosurgeon with an inspiring rags-to-riches story, might make a good candidate for the White House.
To that, Mr. Carson has said it was “up to God,” according to various media.
