Limbaugh ‘NOT FEELING’ Trump’s Statements On Health Care Mandate

RUSH: Grab audio sound bite number eight. I can’t wait on this. I can’t wait for this to come in the order in which it was given to me. I do not… This is the second time now that I have heard this, and I’m not… (sigh) It’s last night’s CNN Republican town hall, the second night. The first night was Ben Carson and Rubio and Cruz. Last night it was Jeb, Donald Trump and Governor John Kasich. Anderson Cooper said, “Mr. Trump, if Obamacare is repealed and there’s no mandate for everybody to have insurance, why would insurance companies insure somebody who has a pre-existing condition?”

I don’t believe this.

TRUMP: Well, I like the mandate. Okay, so here’s where I’m a little bit different. I don’t want people dying on the streets. I say this all the time. The Republican people, they’re wonderful people. They don’t want people dying on the streets. We’re going to take care of them through maybe concepts of Medicare. We have hospitals that aren’t doing well. We have doctors that aren’t doing well. You cannot let people die on the street, okay? Taking care of people that are really, really sick and are going to die. That’s not single payer, by the way. That’s called “heart.”

RUSH: Uhhhh, I’m just not feeling this, folks. In the first place, people are not dying on the street. Where does that come from? That’s the second time that I’ve heard Mr. Trump say this. Where does this come from? Who is out there saying, “We can’t let people keep dying on the street”? There aren’t any Republicans saying that. If anybody’s saying that, it’s got to be a bunch of Democrats. But I don’t know if any Democrats are saying it. It isn’t happening! So where’s this coming from? And “I like the mandate”?

Now, understandably there was the question asked here, but this is the second time that Trump has said he doesn’t want people dying in the street. I think it’s the second time he’s come out and given a mandate. Maybe not. Maybe this is the first. But here’s the question. This is to Trump. “Mr. Trump, if Obamacare is repealed and there’s no mandate for everybody to have insurance, why would insurance companies insure somebody who has a pre-existing condition?” That question is exactly entails everything wrong with Obamacare from premise to implementation.
