Rush Limbaugh Quotes About ObamaCare

These are some quotes from Rush Limbaugh's show on Monday regarding ObamaCare ~Wild Thing

Liars and Prostitutes Pass Fraud Health Care Bill Tribute to Obama

RUSH: Well, it's one thing we can say with absolute ontological certitude: prostitution has been legalized in Washington, DC. Mary Landrieu, Ben Nelson, Chris Dodd (he gets a hundred million) Vermont, Massachusetts, on and on it goes. Greetings. We all got a screwed and prostitution has now been legalized.

"Folks, this would be a disaster if just one Republican had voted with them, because then they could say it was bipartisan. The fact that the Republicans held out and are nowhere near this is the only decent thing about this, not only for their future but for ours."

You want to hear a liar lie? You want to hear a liar lie right to your face? We have two of them, two sound bites here. Barack Obama this morning in Washington at the White House, a press conference about health care and a number of other things.

OBAMA: The Congressional Budget Office now reports that this bill will reduce our deficit by $132 billion over the first decade and by as much as $1.3 trillion in the decade after that. So I just want to be clear. For all those who are continually carping about how this is somehow a big-spending government bill, this cuts our deficit by $132 billion the first ten years, and by over a trillion in the second. That argument that opponents are making against this bill does not hold water.

RUSH: That's just an out-and-out lie, folks. I mean there's no other way to characterize this. It's not a prevarication, he's not wrong, he's not looking at a set of figures that are incorrect, it's an out-and-out lie. Even Robert Samuelson today in the Washington Post, a column which says, "Passing Health Reform Could be a Nightmare for Obama." Well, by God we only hope so because it's a nightmare for all the rest of us. It damn well better be a nightmare for President Obama and his political future. Robert Samuelson agrees, this is all about Obama and his legacy and nothing else. It will not cover everyone. Even by 2019 there will be something like seven or eight million people uncovered without health insurance. It will not control costs. It will worsen the budget and the bulletin deficit. It is going to raise taxes out the wazoo on virtually everybody. It is going to disrupt the entire health care system. It is atrocious legislation, all of that, that's the summary of the Robert Samuelson piece. Here's the next Obama sound bite from this morning at the White House.

OBAMA: When my administration walked through the door, the country faced a growing economic downturn as well as a deepening fiscal hole. Washington had passed massive tax cuts for the wealthy and an expensive new entitlement program without paying for any of it. Health care costs continue to rise year after year and little effort was made to cut wasteful spending. As a result, over the previous eight years, the -- the national debt doubled, doubled. As I've said in the long run, we can't continue to spend as if deficits don't have consequences, as if waste doesn't matter, as if the hard-earned tax dollars of the American people can be treated like Monopoly money. That's what we've seen time and time again.

RUSH: So he has the audacity here to say that Republicans spend your money like Monopoly money, and again blaming the Bush administration. This guy is a coward. He does not have the gonads or the spine to even stand up and accept what he's doing. All of this is his doing. He cannot even proudly say, "You should like this, you may not like it but I'm telling you it's the best thing for you, it's the best thing for me." No, he knows it's a disaster. He has to slough this off on his predecessor, the previous administration. "When my administration walked through the door the country faced a growing economic downturn, a deepening fiscal hole." Massive tax cuts are the cause of all this? Those massive tax cuts created more revenue to the Treasury than they had anticipated. They always do. The capital gains tax cuts alone caused more money to pour into Washington than anybody figured. "Health care costs continue to rise, eight years national debt doubled." This man has spent more deficit money in one year than the Bush eight years in total, ladies and gentlemen.

The audacity of this is Alinsky-like, simply go out and lie to everybody's face.

"One thing we can say with absolute ontological certitude: Prostitution has been legalized in Washington, DC."

"The Founding Fathers created this country. They rose up against a tyranny that is nothing compared to the tyranny in this health care bill."

"Obama has spent more deficit money in one year than the Bush eight years in total."

"Once they pass health care reform all we're going to hear about is the deficit, and that is a code word for Democrats: we have to raise taxes. That's what's next."

"Harry Reid is claiming Americans are dying from lack of health insurance as he is speaking.Harry, send 'em an ambulance and shut up."

"Harry Reid said two Americans are dying every ten minutes. There are 525,600 minutes in one year. So the Democrats are killing 210,240 people by delaying the benefits for four years."

"This is about ruling you, not governing the country. This is not about we the people. It's about them the political class. They have sought this moment ever since FDR."

"If the Democrats are talking about this being such a wonderfully historic moment, why are they doing it under the cover of darkness, in the middle of night like rats, instead of the heroic statesmen they think they are?"

Wild Thing's comment.........

If any of you would like, you can get a FREE pocket Constitution. I have one from several years ago that Ollie North was giving away. It is great!

I am really fearful of what the practice of medicine will be like ten years from now. It may be like Britain's. The elite, like obama and his gang, will have the best medical care. He promised that all Americans would have exactly the same quality care he wll have. That is bullshit, two hands full.
