Recently reelected Democrat House Leader Nancy Pelosi stated that Ben Carson Carson, a retired Pediatric Neurosurgery from Johns Hopkins, “disturbingly unqualified” for the job of Secretary of Housing and Urban Development
Pelosi fired off an angry statement following Carson’s nomination announcement:
Dr. Ben Carson is a disconcerting and disturbingly unqualified choice to lead a department as complex and consequential as Housing and Urban Development.
Our country deserves a HUD Secretary with the relevant experience to protect the rights of homeowners and renters, particularly in low income and minority communities, and to ensure that everyone in our country can have access to safe and affordable housing without facing discrimination or homelessness.
There is no evidence that Dr. Carson brings the necessary credentials to hold a position with such immense responsibilities and impact on families and communities across America.
The same women that told us we had to pass Obamacare to see what’s in it. The same one, in the face of another historic election loss, thinks the Democrats don’t need a change in direction does think that Ben Carson would discriminate against blacks and other minorities.
This is completely absurd. Dr. Carson grew up poor in Detroit, living in government housing as a child. He is most likely the first person to ever be nominated for Secretary of HUD who actually lived in a government project. He is uniquely qualified to be Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
Nancy Pelosi has helped run the Democrat Party into the ground but for some reason the democrats have reelected her as House Minority Leader. As with most of the leaders of the democratic party, she is full of criticism, yet offer no solutions.
