Dr. Carson’s supporters should sign his petition to Save Our Healthcare
Merrifield, Va.—March 27, 2014—The National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee, a political action committee formed to draft Dr. Ben Carson into the race for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, today urged supporters to stand up against Obamacare by ignoring the March 31 enrollment deadline and supporting Dr. Carson’s efforts to repeal the law through the American Legacy PAC’s Save Our Healthcare Project.

In a March 24 email to members, National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee Chairman John Philip Sousa IV praised Dr. Carson’s efforts to end Obamacare and urged those who would like to see him run for president to sign the American Legacy PAC’s Save Our Healthcare Project petition. Though the National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee and American Legacy PAC are not affiliated, both organizations recognize the important role Dr. Carson can play in saving the U.S. healthcare system.
“Dr. Carson’s chairmanship of the Save Our Healthcare Project is a clear move into the political arena, and his efforts to end Obamacare position him as a national leader in the most important policy fight of this generation,” Sousa said. “Supporters of the National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee know the best place for him to affect this change will be the White House in 2016, but we can also help him now by encouraging every American to sign American Legacy PAC’s petition to Save Our Healthcare.”
The National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee is also urging its supporters to stand up against Obamacare by refusing to enroll by the enrollment deadline of March 31, 2014.
“Opponents of Obamacare, especially Millennials who have the most to lose under its crushing weight, should not sign up for overpriced insurance,” said Vernon Robinson, the Committee’s campaign director. “Instead, they should consult with a tax professional to ensure their withholdings are set appropriately so the IRS can’t garnish their refund to pay the penalty for not enrolling.”
Under Obamacare, the IRS will collect fines for non-enrollment by subtracting the fine amount from any tax refund that you may be due. Therefore, for any year that you do not receive a refund, the IRS cannot collect fines.
“There are numerous ways to ensure that you keep more money from every paycheck during the year,” Robinson said. “We’re encouraging our Millennial supporters to consult a tax advisor or CPA who can direct them on the best way to protect themselves from the Obamacare noncompliance penalty.”

Petition to Dr. Ben Carson:
You said that if the American people were still “clamoring” for you to run for President, you would seriously consider doing so. Well, I’m clamoring for you to run for President of the United States. We need a citizen statesman to lead our nation, not just politicians who see public office as a career.
As you have said, five Doctors signed the Declaration of Independence and played instrumental roles in leading our nation at great risk to themselves and their families. Today, America needs a President who is committed to the U.S. Constitution, who has solutions for our debt crisis, and who will bring harmony to our nation.
I believe you are that person. Please become a candidate for President of The United States.You can count on my support and prayers.
