LIMBAUGH: If We REPEAL Obamacare, “It’s The WILD WEST”

RUSH: What are they gonna do now? See, the objective in the original design of Obamacare was to fail. But it was supposed to fail with Hillary Clinton or another Democrat in the White House. And at the moment of failure, it was then to be suggested almost as a brilliant spur-of-the-moment idea, “Hey, why don’t we just go single payer,” or, “Hey, why don’t we just put everybody on Medicare? Hey, problem solved!” Because at that time, that point in time, premiums would be out of reach, deductibles out of reach, insurance companies closing down and closing up shop, exchanges closing up shop. So it’d be eagerly demanded even maybe by the public.

But now we’ve got Trump who doesn’t want to go single payer, and this the Democrats and the establishment know. So there are two options here, and it’s interesting to note that if you listen to the media and you listen to the Democrats, repealing Obamacare is the worst thing that could be done, but it isn’t. Staying with Obamacare and letting it implode is the absolute worst outcome here. Repealing it means you repeal it. You get rid of every Obamacare law, and that means you start over. But it also raises a question: At what point do you…? Where do you resume?

What do we fall back to?

If Obamacare is repealed and those laws are gone — there are no exchanges, there are no subsidies — then at what point in the past do we go back to? Well, it’s the Wild West, folks. It’s the Wild West. If we repeal it, it’s the Wild West, and then you’re gonna see the traditional manner and behavior of Washington kick into gear and start trying to craft something. This is the theory of the optimists at the vote failure yesterday and last night, that this exact scenario would result, and that the lack of any formal federal health care law (other than what might still be on the books that we’d revert to) will cause, will create the need for immediate legislative action.

Otherwise, it will be said that the insurance companies will once again be in charge of health care because they’re the ones that sell policies. And you can’t get coverage if you don’t have a policy, ’cause it’s so expensive, you can’t pay for it yourself. So that’s Trump’s ultimate… I don’t know if you call it “threat,” but that’s his negotiating position. “Okay. If we can’t vote to repeal this thing, I’m standing by and I’m letting it die. I’m letting it implode. I’m gonna let it fail, and it’s on the Democrats, and I’ll make sure everybody knows it’s on the Democrats.

“I am not gonna own this sucker. It isn’t mine. I had nothing to do with it. I’ve engaged in good-faith efforts to fix this and people aren’t interested. So, fine. If you’re not interested, establishment, you live with the results.” I’m here to tell you: The results of Obamacare imploding are far worse than Obamacare being repealed.
