A Powerful Transcript from Rush on Healthcare

Pages: 1 2

Obama says we cannot drive our SUVs — and eat as much as we want, and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times — and just expect other countries are gonna say, “Okay.” That’s Barack Obama in May of 2008. Okay, so what’s the big deal of that? It tells us who he is. He doesn’t want the best of life to exist in the United States. He doesn’t want the highest standard of living in this country because to him that’s immoral and unjust. What the rest of the world thinks is more important. We can’t drive our SUVs. We can’t eat as much as we want, and we can’t keep our homes at 72 degrees all the time, because the rest of the world is just not gonna accept that. Well, if this guy is the president, and he’s got a Congress that’s corrupt, and a court willing to back him up on the exercise of dictatorial-type powers, how long do you think you’re gonna be driving an SUV, or paying through the nose for it?

“If somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can. It’s just it’ll bankrupt ‘em because they’re gonna be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.” January 17th, 2008. Barack Obama, presidential candidate. You want to know why West Virginians are not going to the Democrat convention, there it is. Their state is coal. And Obama has promised he’s gonna put it out of business. How? By making it prohibitively expensive to do it. That’s authoritarianism, that’s statism, and he now has the power to do this. And even if he doesn’t have the power, such as granting amnesty to a million people, he’s still going to do it. This is the reality of what we’re up against, and have been for three-and-a-half years.

Barack Obama to Latinos in October of 2010: We’re gonna push our enemies, and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us. Yeah, he does that. You and I know the state of the solar industry in this country, do we not? There is no solar industry. It doesn’t exist, right? I mean, it’s bankrupt. Everybody that gets into it loses. There’s no real power being generated. It’s not helping these people in the DC area that have lost their power, right? So I’m reading this morning a tech blog about gadgets, and there’s this big, long piece from this young kid on all the solar energy being created out there and how you can tap into it. There isn’t any.

This kid has been lied to his whole life, believes the lies, really thinks that there’s all this brand-new clean energy out there. It’s already there and he’s excited. There isn’t gonna be any more pollution. He has no more awareness of the real world he lives in than somebody who’s not yet born. So we face a monumental task here. It’s one of education.

    Rush is right, as usual. Because the state is now the payor of your health they will start mandating what you can eat, how much exercise you should do, and whether or not you get that procedure or not. Unfortunately, they (the pinheads that foisted this on us) are not beholden to this terrible law. As usual they are exempt along with some of their favorite buddies, unions, states, ….etc. And guess whos going to pay for the health insurance people cant afford…… the rest of us. That would include illegals, and people who could afford it but would rather buy tennis shoes or electronic gadgets than something for their own health.

    And really, you cant buy your own contraception? Really? Is there nothing we are responsible for anymore? Oh what the hell, throw in makeup while your at it as well.

    Someone please tell me where in our Constitution we will find the authority for Congress to mess with our Healthcare, kind of light bulbs we can used, give our tax dollars to Islamic countries that want to convert the entire world into a Caliphate that requires all persons to strictly adhere to Shariah/Islamic law. If you decide not to do so, you are then forced to pay a tax called, jizya. Of course, Obama is already paying jizya to Middle Eastern nations.

    Both political parties have moved us away from the Constitution Article 1, Section 8, Clauses 1-18 which limits our national government’s involvement in our lives and their spending.

    If they can penalize us for not buying healthier care, they can do the same if we do not convert to Islam.

      To quote Kathy Hochul, the future former congressf**k from NY, “Well, basically, we’re not looking to the Constitution on that aspect of it.”
      That answer your question?

      There is no authority in the Constitution, but they own the Supreme Court so they get away with whatever they want.

      All they have to do is levy a tax and poof…. it's legal. Justice Roberts said so.

  • Chris Gleason

    Rush, as always, right on the mark. We saw this coming but our gutless Congress couldn’t stop it. Now it’s up to us. Obama MUST be defeated in November. He must leave and take his czars and bureaucrats with him.

    The purpose of the Bogus Health Care bill wasn't to give everyone healthcare, it was to re-distribute the wealth and gain more control over the American people. It is a travesty because people are getting rationed healthcare and having to wait longer to get treatments or surgeries, particularly the elderly. Look at the way they got the votes using kickbacks and entitlements, + not reading the bill…vote these Leftwing Apostates out of office!

    The health insurance industry is one of the most controlled industries in America. Even before the passage of Obamacare, the government had its tentacles in every aspect of the business—from licensing who can sell insurance and where, to dictating how they price their policies, to demanding to whom they must sell their services, to mandating what benefits they must include in policies, to restricting how they market their services. Obamacare just fastens one more chain around the neck of an industry that is already in a regulatory chokehold. But government is not the remedy to our health insurance problems—it is the disease that has plagued this country’s health care woes and Obamacare will only exacerbate them. The cure is to liberate health insurance companies to offer their products and services on an unrestricted market and free Americans to purchase the coverage that works best for them

      Maybe it's as Samuel told the ppl so long ago, when they asked for administrative governance, and got king Saul: "Big boo-boo; this guy and his minions are going to take and take and take, and then break for lunch, and after lunch, step up to take some more, . . . and continue taking, . . . until quitting time, . . . when they finally punch out.", . . .

    Most people simply can't accept that they've been lied to most of their lives. They don't want to believe they're dupes, useful idiots. Yet they have been and they are, so how else do you phrase it?

  • Tale-of-the-Donkey

    Rush: We cannot defeat Obamacare if we do not explain how it destroys the current health care system and the individual.

    Ted Cruz vs/ David-DEVIL Dewhurst's Multi-Million Dollar RINO-sponsored paid ads on RUSH.

    Ted Cruz: – His campaign mantra:

    "I will work to repeal every word and every syllable of ObamaCare."

    Sounds kind of like a Matthew 24, not-one-stone-left-upon-another approach, which is exactly what will be needed for the ObamaCare monstrosity.
