Covered California, the state Obamacare exchange, enrolled 625,000 recipients. More than any other participating state. That was yesterday’s news. Today’s news is: California officials have set aside $200 million to help offset the budget deficits the exchange is projecting. Why? The federal government isn’t doing what California officials foolishly thought the federal government would do: Fund it.

RUSH: We just sort of run right by the idea that the Speaker of the House of the United States of America says the president of the United States can't be trusted because he makes his own law. It's just as commonplace as getting water from the faucet. It's an impeachable offense and it of course doesn't matter.
RUSH: The Democrat Party is in the process of impugning, trashing, and tarnishing the whole concept of work as a Republican idea that imprisons people into lives of great suffering, disappointment, and economic disparity, all while being denied the pursuit of leisure.
RUSH: It's about saving Obamacare and saving the Democrat Party from Obamacare, because, in the normal set of circumstances, this would have destroyed the party that came up with it...

RUSH: The title of the book is Rush Revere and the First Patriots. Among other things, young readers will be introduced to Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry -- and, in one of my favorite parts of the book, Rush Revere gets into an argument and debate with King George III over his treatment of the colonists.
RUSH: Rand Paul's out there, and I'm beginning to wonder if he knew that these diary or these papers existed, because Rand Paul has been on a tear for the past couple of weeks constantly referring to Bill Clinton as a "sexual predator."
RUSH: It's just appalling, isn't it, how our capitalist masters have brainwashed people like that guy into thinking he needs to work?
RUSH: The Republicans just aren't gonna do it. It's just a reality you're gonna have to come to grips with. They're not gonna do it, and, if the Democrats nominate Hillary and she gets to be the first woman, or an Hispanic, it's gonna be the same thing.
RUSH: So, in her brilliance, Norah O'Donnell asks if we can reverse the extinction.
O'DONNELL: Elizabeth, this is reversible?
KOLBERT: Well, if you're already gone, if you're one of the unfortunate species that's already gone, clearly it's not reversible.
