Rush Limbaugh on Obamacare: ‘None of This Had to Happen’
Ever the critic of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act (AKA Obamacare), Rush Limbaugh has again criticized the health care plan.
“Let me cut to the chase on something here regarding Obama and reinstating your canceled plan, ’cause I’ll tell you, you can find whatever you want to find,” Rush said. “You can find the insurance companies saying they can’t do it. You’ll find media people arguing amongst themselves about whether or not Obama’s got the legal authority to do this, and that’s really what I want to focus on here because people have been confused.”
The radio show host continued:
I’ve been getting e-mail all day, ‘Rush, why would Obama veto the Upton bill if it basically says exactly what he said yesterday?’ What did Obama say yesterday? And, by the way, I don’t believe for a moment that the bumbling, incoherent, ‘Gee, I don’t know what’s going on around here’ president we got yesterday was anything but an act. That was a total act yesterday. This guy is not disengaged. (Obama impression) ‘You know, I didn’t know about the website.’ One week into it, he said he still didn’t know how bad it was, that nobody had told him. Yet he’s the smartest guy in the room. And he tried to turn his ignorance into a sign of his brilliance when he said (Obama impression), ‘I think I’m pretty smart. I’m smart enough to know not to go out there and tell you this thing’s working if it isn’t. I didn’t know.’
