Limbaugh’s response to the Supreme Court’s Obamacare decision was predictably bold.
He declared, “Our freedom of choice just met its death panel: the Supreme Court of the United States.”
“What we get today with the Obamacare ruling,” Limbaugh continued, “is the largest tax in the history of the world, [and it] is going to be paid by the uninsured, the very people Obama is supposed to help”.
Many were shocked to learn that Chief Justice John Roberts had cast the deciding vote in favor of Obamacare. However, after talking to a friend who also happens to be a neurologist, Michael Savage thought he had an explanation: “It’s well known that Roberts, unfortunately for him, has suffered from epileptic seizures. Therefore he has been on medication.”
Savage said, “If you look at Roberts’ writings, you can see the cognitive disassociation in what he is saying. He said the law is a tax, but if the law wasn’t written as a tax, how can he say it’s taxation?”
Savage offered advice for conservatives that came straight from the pages of his bestseller, “Trickle Up Poverty”: use religious freedoms to challenge Obamacare.
Savage noted, “Obama has made religious exemptions for healthcare insurance,” including the Amish and Christian Scientists.
“If they can make exceptions for these religious groups,” Savage continued, “let’s find other religious groups that they’ll have to find exceptions for until there are so many people exempted from the system, they won’t possibly be able to pay for it.”
Hannity joked that once again, he found himself trying to “coax conservatives off the ledge,” this time following the Obamacare ruling.
“I am far more resolved now than I have ever been,” he told listeners. “The Supreme Court essentially ruled that while it believes Obamacare is constitutional, it also validated that the president’s bloated health-care law is indeed a tax increase on the citizens of the United States.”
