Rush Limbaugh made a rare appearance on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday, where he discussed, in part, a White House campaign to put a positive spin on President Obama’s 2010 health care reform law.
The conservative radio host predicted the bill wouldn’t be repealed, but would fail on its own. Democrats are still trying to sell the bill, Limbaugh said, because they fear losing in the 2014 midterms.
“It’s going to survive,” Limbaugh said. “It’s the law of the land. I don’t think — it’ll survive, but I think it’s going to implode on itself. It’s just unworkable. It is 2,200 pages of a brand-new bureaucracy that transfers one-sixth of the economy to the government, which doesn’t know how to run anything properly, particularly this one. The idea — why are they selling it? Why are they — it’s the law of the land. I’ll tell you why they’re selling it is because of 2014 midterms. Only 35 percent of the people approve or want Obamacare. 2010, the Democrats lost big. I mean, all the way down the ballot, the dog catcher at the local level, they lost big because of Obamacare. They are salivating at winning 2014 and that is why they’re out there running campaigns for a bill that is already the law of the land that nobody can do anything about. They’re trying to sell it — counter the negatives about it for the 2014 midterms.”
Limbaugh said there was still an opportunity for the GOP to gain ground on the Democratic Party, but warned if the health care law stood, it would be used as a political tool for the Democrats
