RUSH: Listen to it and weep. Raleigh television last night, uninsured patient DeCarlo Flythe was asked about Obamacare.

FLYTHE: It’s just going to be like Christmas, I mean it’s going to be great. No worries, you know, the bills, we can go ahead and pay our copay and be all right.

RUSH: It’s going to be like Christmas. No worries. No bills. Go ahead and pay our copay and it will be all right, that’s it, going to be like Christmas. Listen to it and weep. I mean that’s why Obama’s got a 46% approval rating, folks, right there.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: People want to hear this again. This is a citizen in Raleigh, North Carolina, last night, WRAL-TV Eyeball News, uninsured patient DeCarlo Flythe. The TV people went out and found this guy, and they asked him about the passage of health care reform.

FLYTHE: It’s just going to be like Christmas, I mean it’s going to be great. No worries, you know, the bills, we can go ahead and pay our copay and be all right.

RUSH: It’s going to be just like Christmas. They told us this when Medicare was signed into law, nobody’s got any worries anymore, nobody’s going to have any more problems financially now because we’ve signed Medicare into law. Ted Kennedy, may he rest in peace, gave us the HMO system. Ted Kennedy invented it and created it. Everybody complains about the HMO system.


BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Play audio sound bite 31 again. People always say how is it that Obama’s got $46% approval in the polls? It’s because of this.


FLYTHE: It’s just going to be like Christmas, I mean it’s going to be great. No worries, you know, the bills, we can go ahead and pay our copay and be all right.

RUSH: That’s DeCarlo Flythe. I know by now everybody knows who DeCarlo Flythe is. DeCarlo Flythe is well known, almost as well known as Marcelas. It’s spelled F-l-y-t-h-e, sort of like William Jefferson Blythe Clinton, this is DeCarlo Flythe, F-l-y-t-h-e. DeCarlo, I need you to call a woman in Tampa. Shortly after Obama was immaculated, he did a town hall in Atlanta and a woman stood up and said, (paraphrasing) ‘I need a new kitchen in my house and I actually need a new car, what are you going to do for me?’ and Obama said, ‘We’ll have somebody on staff get with you.’ A bunch of people at that press conference stood up and said things they were going to need. You need to find that woman, DeCarlo, and ask her if she’s got her new kitchen from Obama’s stash and her new car. And then there are some people in Detroit you might want to talk to who thought they were going to be getting stimulus vouchers, access to $15 billion of stimulus money. Unemployed people in Detroit were told to go down to some federal building or city hall and sign up.

And, you know, our radio affiliate sent cameras and microphones down there and said where is this money coming from? Coming from Obama, Obama’s stash. DeCarlo, there’s a lot of people who thought Christmas was coming. You need to get a hold of them and find out if it has, and I don’t think it has, DeCarlo. I think since that town hall meeting in Tampa, about three million more people have lost their jobs than were working at the time. Existing home sales declined in January, third consecutive month. Nobody except us — and I mean all of you in this audience — nobody is talking about the absolute inability to pay for any of these programs now. We are broke; we are in debt; we have a deficit of one-and-a-half trillion dollars this year, $14 trillion dollar national debt. It’s incomprehensible. It’s incomprehensible, and there’s no way of paying it back. But under the premise of paying it back, DeCarlo, get ready, your taxes are going to be skyrocketing, everybody, value-added tax, it’s going to happen.

I say this with a smile on my face. I shouldn’t be smiling because it’s a crying shame what is being done to the country. I remember Obama constantly arguing against cutting taxes to help the economy. He said we couldn’t go back to the same old, tired ideas that gave us the financial crisis in the first place. Well, what is new about health care reform? What in the world’s new about it? Isn’t it just doing more the same that got us into the problem in the first place, only worse? It most definitely is.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Ah, we’re gonna close out the show today, folks, with one more visit to our beloved friend DeCarlo Flythe, caught on tape on Raleigh television last night. (replaying of sound bite) And DeCarlo, you need to — I said Tampa earlier. You need to call a woman in Fort Myers and ask her if she got her new kitchen or a new car. She asked for it last, what, March, February?
