Here are the highlights of the obama speech as decoded by Rush Limbaugh who not only can read between the lines but knows what the lines are before they're even said. Due to AARP restrictions only Rush's comments will be posted.
The Dictator, Joined in Progress
OBAMA: -- later today I'll be in Ohio where Governor Kasich, a Republican, has expanded Medicare under the Affordable Care Act --
RUSH: I can tell you what he's gonna do.
RUSH: And they've just been shafted based on what you're gonna propose here in a minute.
RUSH: Five hundred thousand is significant?
RUSH: Not true.
RUSH: People are shocked at what they found there.
RUSH: Can I ask a question here? Why would anybody believe what he says after the big lie about being able to keep -
RUSH: Still continuing the lie, folks.
RUSH: There isn't --
RUSH: He's lying again.
Through all of that gobbledygook, let me try to translate what you just heard. You would never know it, if you just listened to all that gobbledygook, you would never know that what Obama is doing is postponing the requirements that are forcing cancellations of your policies until after the elections.
He's doing two things: He's telling the insurance companies, as a dictator would, what they can and can't do or what they must or must not do, or what they have to and don't have to do. He is suggesting, for purely political purposes, that if you have your plan now and you like it, you can keep it for one more year so that you don't get any angrier at Democrats than you are now and vote against them next November.
If your plan has been canceled, he has just ordered the insurance company to make it available to you, so that you can go back and get that plan. The problem is that that plan was canceled precisely because it conflicts with his law, with Obamacare. So he has declared war against the insurance companies here and is making it veritably impossible for them to do business. This is purely political.
All of this gobbledygook is designed to make everybody think that somebody else came along and canceled your plan and he's going to come to the rescue now and give you your plan back, but just for a year -- and he reiterated the original lie. He told you that when he told you that you could keep your plan "unless there's a change in it." He never said "unless there's a change in it," so he's continuing the first lie -- well, the second lie to cover the first lie -- with this announcement today.
So essentially, this probably also serves the purpose of preempting the Upton bill in the House of Representatives, which we talked about yesterday as a potential trap for the Republicans, and there is a lot to wade through. Folks, this an absolute swamp now. It is an absolute disaster, and it's also a minefield. This is all anybody needs to know that government has no business doing any of this. This, today, is an admission of abject failure in the president's quest to actually destroy constitutional government.
