"Senate Democrats up for reelection unanimously want to delay the individual mandate 'til January 2015, after the election. Yes. You heard right. Just last week, folks, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, me, anybody suggesting that the individual mandate be delayed, we were called terrorists, KKK, racists, crazy, extremist kooks, mean-spirited hatemongers, bomb throwers, hostage takers, extortionists, Nazis. Just last week."
"These hearings are the root of Obama's real incompetence. It's breathtaking. I'll give you a little hint. He can't even design a system that is supposed to fail. It's just too good, folks." '
"Ladies and gentlemen, whatever you think you know, you don't know how bad it is. You don't know how incompetent Obama is. You really don't know. This is breathtaking, what has been learned recently by me and others."
"I am so excited to tell you things, and others are excited to hear me say things, that they want it now."
"Obama has accomplished the exact opposite of what he intended. People are coming to the commonsense conclusion that government can't do this."
"These hearings are the root of Obama's real incompetence. It's breathtaking. I'll give you a little hint. He can't even design a system that is supposed to fail. It's just too good, folks."
"I mean, folks, I'm in fat city. I'm in fat city because I always structure to where I owe money at tax time. Well, not entirely. There have been years. But if you structure your taxes so that you do not get a refund, you do not have to buy health insurance and you do not have to pay a fine 'cause they can't collect it from you if you don't have a refund due. And that is just another nail in the coffin of Obamacare imploding on itself."
"In the Obama age, can you imagine if a Republican had referred to a congressional committee as a monkey court? Everybody would have forgotten the controversy over the Washington Redskins and they'da dragged Howard Cosell out of the grave to comment on it."
" Now, just last week, folks, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, me, anybody suggesting that the individual mandate be delayed, to be fair with the corporate mandate, what were we called? Terrorists, the equivalent of the KKK, racist, crazy, extremist kooks, mean-spirited hatemongers. Bomb throwers. Hostage takers. Extortionists. One week later, when elected Democrats up for reelection want to do it, now we're going to do it for the American people."
"If the government can't handle 400,000 cases at the VA, how in the world are they gonna handle a country full of health care?"
"Obamacare designed to fail, government is the salvation, but that won't work now because government is being seen as the problem and the blame and the incompetent player here. One of the reasons that's happening is because Cruz and Lee fought this thing and identified for the public that the, quote, unquote, Republicans fought against this. They are not part of it. Those two led that charge and lead that identity for the Republicans. Attaboys."
"Remember when Ted Cruz and Mike Lee tried to change the law of the land, that was called terrorism, hostage taking, treason, demanding a ransom or some such thing. When Obama does it, it's just a tweak. He just arbitrarily is extending the enrollment period six weeks. He can't do that, but he's doing it."
"The individual mandate is the guts. If that goes, the whole thing goes. But don't tell. I don't want Obama to know that. 'Cause if Obama hears that, he won't delay it and he'll tell these Senators to take a hike. So just keep that between you and me, but don't doubt me."
"I am convinced that despite what you think of Obama, I don't think Obama has a person-to-person connection with people. I think people love him because of his race and feel sorry for him, object of sympathy. I think people feel he's a victim, he portrays himself as a victim of America, he gets sympathy that way. I think he gets plenty of loyalty from Democrat to Democrat, liberal to liberal, people loyal to the cause. I don't think -- and I'm probably a lone actor here -- I don't think that Obama really has a personal connection to people that voted for him."
"We have an economy that can provide a standard of living for a great percentage of that 90 million not working that is a better and higher standard of living than they are getting on welfare. That's what's been remarkable, exceptional, if you will, about this country."
"The Democrat Party wants a welfare state. They want an expanding welfare roll.
And we don't have the money. The people who are getting the money have no legitimate claim to it. We don't have the money to be doling out in ways that are not productive."
