Dr. Ben Carson, the world renown pediatric surgeon, has officially launched an exploratory committee for a bid to run for president in 2016.

Carson took to his Twitter account today to make his momentous announcement.

I am pleased to announce that I have established a Presidential #ExploratoryCommittee[1][2] #BenCarson[3]

Carson, the very first speaker at this CPAC 2015[5] last week, slammed Obamacare as creating dependency.

“We need to understand what true compassion is to reach out to individuals who think that being dependent is reasonable as long as they feel safe,” Carson said.. “It’s not compassion to pat them on the head and say, ‘There, there, I’m going to take care of all your needs, your health care, your food.’ That’s the opposite of compassion.
