In an interview with Hugh Hewitt, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson outlined a plan to overhaul the HUD department which has been described as a “garden of corruption.” “My goal is to change that perception completely, to be the most honest department in the government,” he said.
Here is what happened to Ben Carson yesterday:
THEN CARSON SAID THE FOLLOWING: “SURGEONS GET THINGS DONE. THEY DON’T SIT AROUND AND TALK ABOUT IT ALL THE TIME. THE PATIENT WOULD BE DEAD BY THAT TIME.”
Carson said about the HUD department:
“We’re already putting in place a structure so that we can monitor where every penny goes… You know, when I started doing that, these people looked at me like I had six heads.”“I was told when I came into HUD that it was the most bureaucratic organization on Earth, and that you would get no cooperation, because people would only be interested in preserving their little fiefdoms,” Carson said. “I have not found that to be the case at all.” “We will absolutely be keeping a scorecard, and we will be making it clear what is going on. And you’re going to see, I think, a very substantial change in the opinion of a lot of people when they see results as opposed to rhetoric that we normally have with political administrations,” he said next.
