Rush Limbaugh Chris Wallace: Limbaugh on Fox News Sunday Part 2: Health Care Snatching Liberty

Chris Wallace interviewed Rush Limbaugh in Florida for Fox News Sunday. The video below is Part 2. Here Rush say that he is "proud" of Glen Beck. See Part 1 here. See Part 3 here.

From Limbaugh's transcript: a few pull-out quotes from the video below:

WALLACE: And in 30 seconds, how do you insure the insured without this big overhaul?

RUSH: Well, I've run the numbers, and the real number of uninsured that want insurance is 12 million. Take some of the unspent stimulus. We have 85 percent of the stimulus unspent. Take some of it. For 35 to $40 billion a year, you could insure those people, not $2 trillion, not 1.4 -- if that's the objective, do it now.

WALLACE: Do you think the individual mandate is constitutional? Do you think...

RUSH: No, I don't think the...

WALLACE: ... do you think the government has the right...

WALLACE: ... to tell people, "You're going to get health insurance, and if you don't get it, you're going to pay a penalty?"

RUSH: I do not think it's constitutional. Chris, this -- this is -- these are dark days for the country. This is deadly serious stuff. This is a total attempt to remake the country as founded and constituted. And it -- it worries me greatly....

Rush - I don't know of any Republican who would try to take over one-sixth of the U.S. economy. I don't know one Republican who would put forth this -- this irresponsible cap and trade bill. I don't know one Republican who would actually do that as something he initiated.
