Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh was shocked to learn only six people enrolled in Obamacare the day the marketplace opened and suggested that President Barack Obamacare should resign over this “embarrassment” and “abject failure.”
“Americans are losing coverage by political design,” Limbaugh said Friday. “Yeah, in fact, the White House knew out there that 93 million Americans were gonna lose their policy. Richard Nixon resigned over a lie nowhere near this big.”
“And you know the hell of it is that Obama doesn’t think he lied,” he added. “I don’t think Obama, in his mind, is capable of lying. Whatever is necessary to say or do to advance the agenda is what is morally correct. Doesn’t matter. He doesn’t care. He doesn’t think he lied.”
“The bottom line is that Obama, the regime knew that 93 million Americans would be unable to keep their health care plans under Obamacare,” he continued. “… Folks, Richard Nixon resigned over a lie that was much less damaging in scope than this one. I mean, this is an abject, purposeful lie to the American people for the express purpose of passing legislation.”
Nixon tendered the first and only resignation of a U.S. president on Aug. 9, 1974, after orchestrating the 1972 break in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate office complex in Washington, D.C., and subsequently attempting to cover up his involvement.
Limbaugh said Obamacare was the foundation of Obama’s election and reelection.
“This is total fraud,” he added. “It is 100% fraud.”
“I mean, he’s running around talking about, ‘You get to keep your plan if you like it! You get to keep your doctor if you like it! Your premiums are gonna come down $2,500,’” Limbaugh said. “Don’t think people didn’t vote for him on that basis. Don’t think that they didn’t care about that. They did. This is ‘a big F-ing deal,’ as John Kerry or Joe Biden would say.”
