RUSH: Here's Scott, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. I'm glad you waited, sir. Great to have you.
CALLER: Good afternoon, El Rushbo.
CALLER: Mmm, mmm, mmm.
RUSH: Yes, sir.
CALLER: So basically my point is this. You know how they're pushing all these people into Medicaid. It's just a symptom of the single payer disease, so to speak.
RUSH: Well, some people are doing it themselves to avoid Obamacare.
CALLER: Yeah. Yeah. But I think there's a concerted effort to push people into it. And that sound bite you played earlier of the president, I mean, he obviously laid his cards right on the table, and stated that it was a goal to get rid of private insurance.
RUSH: Exactly. This is what I don't understand about why there's no push-back, why don't people think there's something to be defeated here, and how can people not realize who the guy is?
CALLER: I mean, if you speak English you can understand exactly what he was saying.
CALLER: And on a lighter note before I go here, just recently over in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, representative James Traficant just got out of the clink.
CALLER: And he spoke at the prestigious Hoss's Steak and Sea House. I wanted to go so badly but I broke my leg. I would have loved to have heard what he had to say, but I couldn't go. But he spoke at Hoss's Steak and Sea House. (laughing)
RUSH: Well, now, James Traficant, there was a character. James Traficant was just a one in a million character, from the hairstyle to the unpredictable nature of what he was gonna support and who he was gonna be critical of. He did end up, as you say, in the clink. I'm convinced that a lot of good politicians do. But he's out now, and I didn't know he was speaking at steakhouses, but if you're gonna speak someplace, that's not a bad place to speak.
We had the story last week, steakhouses are the modern locations of misogyny and discrimination against women. It's where predator males hang out, steakhouses. It's where they plot anti-women activities. What are you laughing at? This is exactly what the story was. Some feminazi wrote the story that steakhouses are where men go to be men and plot things against women, to conduct a War on Women and stuff. Yeah, Traficant, you know what he did? He bucked the Democrat elite. That's what he did. He went up against the Democrat elite. He's from Ohio, James Traficant. We had him on this program. There were days he loved us, and days he just disagreed vehemently with us. But he was always worth the time. Scott, thanks much.
