Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I can’t remember who wrote this back in 2010, that ultimately what will happen is the Republican Party will ultimately become the party of Obamacare. It will ultimately wind up doing exactly what it is that they’ve done in this bill, which is to make it permanent, and then to take some ownership of it. Check out today’s transcript for the rest….

Mike: “House Republicans release long-awaited plan to replace Obamacare.” Note, is there a word missing from this headline? Let me read that again. “House Republicans release long-awaited plan to replace Obamacare.” [mocking] “Mitter Church, Mitter Church, I can name the missing word in two notes.” What word is missing? What’s the word that’s missing from the headline? I’ll give you a hint. Starts with an R, ends with an L. Repeal. What happened to repeal? Where’s the repeal? I told you people this, been warning about this since April of 2010. It’s not an accident that Obamacare passed – the final passage of the Affordable Care Act happened on the anniversary of Patrick Henry’s “Give me liberty or give me death” speech, April the 23rd. It’s not a coincidence. I have been telling you people since April 24th that as far as the general government of the United States and Obamacare and the social welfare state goes, on that day our fate was sealed and we were cooked. Not that it wasn’t over before that. That just made it over worse.
I can’t remember who wrote this back in 2010, that ultimately what will happen is the Republican Party will ultimately become the party of Obamacare. It will ultimately wind up doing exactly what it is that they’ve done in this bill, which is to make it permanent, and then to take some ownership of it. Newt Gingrich and the rest of the decepticons, the frauds that call themselves conservatives are now going to get their way. They’re going to get a “conservative” welfare state. How do you like that? Gingrich and buddies will finally get to apply six sigma thinking to the welfare state, and now they’ll get a chance at running the Affordable Care Act, which is not affordable. It’s all revealed here in the plan.
Here’s the next headline from today’s Pile of Prep, from FoxNews.com, a piece written by Senator Rand Paul and Rep. Mark Meadows, “Let’s fully repeal ObamaCare, then have an open debate on how to replace it.” Senator Paul, you’re not going to get your way. They’re not going to repeal it. They can’t outright repeal Obamacare because they like too much of it, and big government, parasite government sells. You know the worst part about this, the most stinking, sniveling, diabolical part about all this? The legislatures of the states want this. They want the blood and bribe money, the extortion money from the Affordable Care Act to be pouring into their state via Medicaid block grant payments, or whatever this sinister scam is. They want it. You know why they want it? Because they get to spend money that they don’t actually have to raise.
The dirty little secret is this: if you’re a state legislator – I’ll give you an exception to the rule. Our friend, Representative Nino Vitale of Ohio. Our friend, Representative Andy Holt of Tennessee. There are a few examples. Our friend, Representative Jim of Virginia. His name will come to me in a moment here. There are a few exceptions, but they are exceptions; they’re not rules. That’s why some of us have been calling for rethinking the American union for the last decade, because it’s the only way out of this mess. I am more convinced than ever now, folks. I thought that it might have been possible for President Trump to pave the way for some of this nightmare to end, but the deep state is not going to let him do it. The proverbial handwriting is on the wall. It’s sad.
To reiterate, “Senator Paul, Rep. Meadows: Let’s fully repeal ObamaCare, then have an open debate on how to replace it.” Republicans are not going to repeal Obamacare. I’ve been telling you this since April of 2010, since the monstrosity became law, since Obama had that signing ceremony with that smug kid standing next to him, and he signed with all those pens and gave the pens away. Do you know how I knew this? [mocking] “Mitter Church, I remember.” I’ll tell you how I knew this, because I read the – I didn’t read because it was 1500 pages long, but I read the cliff’s notes of the summaries of the Republican alternatives to Obamacare in 2009. You do know that The Heritage Foundation, the allegedly conservative Heritage Foundation was leading the way on a single-payer healthcare system. It was their idea. They’re the ones that told Hillary back in 1993 and 1994: You’ve got that Hillarycare thing wrong. You can’t have multiple payers. You’ve got to have one payment system. This has always been a conservative initiative. The Dumbocrats only did it because Obama wanted to do it. Was Obama successful in imprinting his name for posterity? Yeah. That’s why we still call it Obamacare.
Conservatives got hosed by a guy named Obama on this. They took advantage of it. Back in March of 2009, now-Senator, but then-Representative Roy Blunt introduced one of two bills that was an alternative to the Affordable Care Act, which was introduced by Pelosi or whoever the Dumbocrat was who introduced it. It was noted at the time that in Blunt’s Bluntcare bill – by the by, Rep. Tom Price was a henchman in assisting. I’ll never forget this. I interviewed Tom Price and asked him back in 2009: Why? Why do you guys have a bill that has the same rotten provisions in it that the Dumbocrats had at the time? The answer was: That’s just in the bill. We’re not really going to – we had to put it in the bill so it’d have a chance of passing because we need Dumbocrat votes, or whatever it was he told me.
This ridiculous idea that the Congress of the United States has the authority to compel an insurance company to provide an insurance policy to someone that they have deemed is not worthy of or is not a good insurance risk is just that, a dumb idea. Folks, you know what it also says? Here’s the deal that was made. The criminal class in Congress told the criminal class that runs the big insurance providers: Look, we’re going to make you cover preexisting conditions. You’re going to make all that money back. We’re going to give it all back to you because we’re going to mandate that everyone else, regardless of need, must have a health insurance policy. We’re going to make everyone do business with you, bucko. You see, you go out there and squawk and complain about how rotten it is and what an injustice it is. Note that the insurance industry did not oppose the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
Now we’re about to find out that what I told you back in 2010 is about to come true, and that is this thing is now permanent. It’s like Social Security and Medicaid. You’re never going to get rid of it. The only way to get rid of it is to not be governed by the entity that’s going to force it upon you. That’s the alternative. You people that – there are a lot of well-intentioned people out there that thought President Trump was going to get this done. I’m telling you, he’s not going to get it done. We called this and told you this. The reason is because there is too many of those $4.5 trillion that you can gobble up at the all-you-can-eat buffet. That’s why.
