Dr. Ben Carson rose from a tough childhood in Detroit to the youngest head of pediatric neurosurgery in the United States at only age 33 after leading the way in advances for the successful separation of Siamese twins and lifesaving neurosurgical procedures on unborn fetuses.

Carson served in that position at the prestigious Johns Hopkins University for over 30 years, teaching, writing and saving lives.

He has been honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom – the highest award that can be bestowed on a civilian – along with over 60 honorary degrees.

His inspirational life story has been portrayed in film and his appearance at the National Prayer Breakfast in 2013, where he fearlessly criticized many of the policies of fellow attendee Barack Obama while the president sat only a few feet away thrust him into the public eye and led to a call for him to run for the presidency himself.

His resume is about to get longer as President-elect Donald Trump begins to assemble the team that will help him make good on his campaign promise to, “Make America Great Again.”

Trump, a political outsider who has never held elected office, will be drawing on a mix of seasoned experts to fill cabinet positions ranging from a new Attorney General at the Department of Justice to the all-important Sec. of State who will be charged with rebuilding and reformulating America’s relationships around the world that have been left in ruins by Hillary Clinton and eight years of Obama’s failed policies.

And at the core of Trump’s mission that is the repeal and replacement of the so-called “Affordable Care Act” known as Obamacare.

The deeply unpopular overhaul of the nation’s health insurance market, one-sixth of the U.S. economy, is failing – as its chief architects have admitted was the original intent of the 2,000-plus legislation designed to pave the way to the final step of a government take-over of health care in the model of the national systems of Great Britain and Canada.

The long-feared consequences of “Obamacare” – annual premium increases of up to 116 percent in some states, deductibles in the tens of thousands of dollars that must be paid by the insured prior to claims being honored, and fewer choices as insurers flee the market with billions of dollars in losses – became a focal point for angry and disillusioned voters.

Trump heard and his vow to do away with the legislation will be at the centerpiece of his new administration when he takes office on January 20, 2017.

Who better than Dr. Carson to head up what will be a complicated process of untangling the mess that is Obamacare and instituting a workable system that benefits the people, not the bureaucracy?

Carson – a brilliant and visionary doctor who made his own run at the presidential nomination last year, learned first hand just how tough politics can be when his calm, rational demeanor was attacked in the press, ridiculed on liberal comedy news shows and mocked in Saturday Night Live skits.

He brings his expertise and compassion, intelligence and perspective as a black man who overcame the poverty and desperation of a Detroit childhood in a fatherless home to the task.

President-elect Trump is lucky to have him ready to serve.

So is America.
