RUSH: You know who’s next? Doctors. And it’s not Obamacare. It’s not Medicare copayments. It’s not any of that. You know how they’re gonna go after doctors? Very simple, and I might even see Obama make this speech this summer. It might even happen before the campaign.
It depends on how successful they judge this current tactic to be. See if you can envision President Obama, the president of the United States, after giving a speech where he says, “You got a business? You couldn’t build that! Somebody else made that happen,” transform to doctors. “Is it really fair that people should get rich off the misery and sickness of their neighbors? Where is the justice in that? How come they should have a bigger house than you do or bigger car than you do?
“How come somebody should have more money just because they are capitalizing on the sick and misery that you’ve experienced? You know how these doctors are! They’ll amputate a leg when they don’t have to just for the extra 30 grand, or they’ll pull a tooth or they’ll do whatever.” Obama has already said that. So how big a stretch is it for Obama to say, “You know, it’s just not moral. It’s never been right that people should get wealthy simply by treating the sick.
“That’s something ought to happen for nothing, out of the goodness of people’s hearts.”
