"The Republican Party, I really believe, suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder from years and years of bullying and taunting. The Republican Party is Jonathan Martin. The Democrat Party and the media are Richie Incognito."
"This, today, is an admission of abject failure in the president's quest to actually destroy constitutional government. Well, no, he's not failing at that. He's actually succeeding at that. What he's trying to do here is just speed the process to get to the point where the government is the only provider of health insurance and health coverage."
"Obama says he's reinstating your canceled plan, but just for a year. But it isn't gonna be that easy. Your plan is gone. And, by the way, he didn't say anything about your getting your old premium back."
"It is beneath this country to have something like this happen with something that is so important and so crucial to so many people, to have it bounced around as a political ping-pong ball, which is what's happening."
"Obama is telling the insurance companies, as a dictator would, what they can and can't do or what they must or must not do."
"Folks, the damage is more than done here. Already millions of Americans have been made to pay higher premiums. They have lost their jobs. Look at all the people who've been converted from part-time to full-time. This cannot be fixed."
"Obama is suggesting, for purely political purposes, that if you like your plan you can keep it for one more year so that you don't get any angrier at Democrats than you are now and vote against them next November."
"For the past month people have had their health insurance policies canceled, but all of a sudden today, with the waving of a magic wand, the insurance companies have to somehow make those canceled plans available, even though they are in direct conflict with the existing law called Obamacare."
"Every aspect of Obamacare is an affront to the very founding of this country."
"Obama might think of himself as one, but he is not a dictator. We are not a banana republic yet. This is not an authoritarian form of government. This is a constitutional republic, and the president doesn't allow or disallow. The president can't buy or purchase. Congress must do that."
"There is no accountability for socialists, for communists, for liberals. It's always somebody else's fault."
"The problem with anybody that's in the news business -- and I don't care where they are -- is that they get caught up in the narrative that's established for the day inside the Beltway, whoever establishes it. And they miss, in my opinion, the big picture."
"Obama does not make the law. His oath of office is to uphold it, and he's in violation, folks. He is changing it willy-nilly by waivers, any number of things, promising you can keep your plan and then not letting you and then reinstating the plan but no mention of what the premiums are gonna cost you. None of this is permissible under the Constitution. This is the kind of authoritarianism that our founders stridently feared and tried to do everything they could to prevent."
"You have very few Republicans with the actual courage to stand up and oppose this totalitarianism."
"There is not proactive Republican policy anymore. They're always reacting. I think they believe they are a genuine minority, that most people in the country, not just the media and the Democrats, don't like them, think they're unhip, uncool, oddball extremist weirdos."
"Back in September of 2010 every Senate Democrat, including Mary Landrieu, voted to reject a plan that would have killed Obama administration regulations that now have resulted in the cancellation of insurance policies. She is as phony as every other Democrat is on this, and I'm sorry if that sounds partisan. I'm telling you the truth."
"I thought Obamacare was settled law. I thought it was the law of the land. I thought back when Ted Cruz and Mike Lee and others were saying, 'Look, let's just delay this whole thing,' or 'let's just defund it and repeal it,' we couldn't because it was the law of the land."
"In the old days, like three years ago, everybody would just snap to whatever Obama wanted, they would do. But it's a different day. I don't want to speak too soon, but I think some threshold has been crossed now."
