RUSH: Jesse, somewhere in Texas. I have one minute, but I wanted to get to you. Hi.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. Mega Air Force brat dittos.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: I wanted to call and let you know that I’m working in health care. I’m actually a comptroller for a hospital, but I’d heard rumors this was happening. My wife last week had a family doctor appointment with an OBGYN, and one or two of the mandatory questions she was asked is, “Do you own a gun in your house, and do you keep it loaded in your house?” They would not register her as a patient until she answered that question.
RUSH: Now, you had heard that was coming, but you didn’t know it was real until yesterday?
CALLER: Well, ’til last week when my wife had that appointment.
RUSH: Last week.
CALLER: She came home and I was shocked.
RUSH: You were shocked, even though you had heard about it before?
CALLER: I heard rumors, but I was like, “There’s no way a health care provider is going to ask that kind of question.”
RUSH: Unless they are mandated to by the federal government.
CALLER: Well, and I figure it’s part of Obamacare, but just the sheer fact that they asked the question and they wouldn’t even let her register as a patient until she answered the question blew my mind.
RUSH: Right. Well, that’s the tip of the iceberg of the things that they’re gonna know about everybody who signs up.
