On Friday’s program, radio host Rush Limbaugh put the Obamacare rollout fiasco into historical perspective, declaring that in many ways, the current scandal is worse than Watergate.
“Folks,” Limbaugh told his audience, “Richard Nixon resigned over a lie that was much less damaging in scope than this one.”
“The bottom line,” he said, “is that Obama, the regime, knew that 93 million Americans would be unable to keep their health care plans under Obamacare. … I mean, this is an abject, purposeful lie to the American people for the express purpose of passing legislation.”
The other aim of Obamacare, Limbaugh insisted, was to undermine the private insurance business itself.
He pointed to an “obscure report buried in a June 2010 edition of the Federal Register,” in which White House officials matter-of-factly predicted that Obamacare would create “massive disruption of the private insurance market because that’s what was intended.”
Limbaugh replayed an audio montage of Obama’s repeated promises that Americans who were satisfied with their existing health insurance could keep their plans following the passage of the Affordable Care Act.
Limbaugh called these promises “a total fraud.”
The Affordable Care Act, Limbaugh continued, “is a purposeful, deceitful, fraudulent law.”
“I think Obama’s lie about keeping your insurance may be the biggest lie ever told by a sitting president. This is not an error. It was not a mistake. This was a calculated, purposeful lie.”
