RUSH: Now, folks, Chuck Barkley of the NBA and TNT was granted an interview with The One. Chuck Barkley interviewed Obama. It was last night. Was it the NBA All-Star weekend? Is that what was going on? (interruption) Yeah, the NBA All-Star Game was last night and prior to that, it’s like before the Super Bowl. Whatever network is televising the Super Bowl does an interview with the president. So TNT does the NBA, so they sent Chuck Barkley in there.
He’s the closest thing they’ve got to a journalist. No, he’s not. They don’t have anybody close to being a journalist. Anyway, they sent Chuck over there, ’cause Obama loves the hoops. They sent Milk Dud Head in there, and asked him a couple of questions, and one of the things that Chuck Barkley… His friends call him “Chuck.” Chuck used to like me, ’til Obama became president, then it changed. Anyway, Chuck said to Obama, “What do you think of the term ‘Obamacare’?”
OBAMA: I like it. I don’t mind. And I tell you, five years from now when everybody’s saying, “Man, I’m sure glad we got health care!” They are gonna be a whole bunch of people who don’t call it Obamacare anymore ’cause they don’t want me to get the credit. We’d like to encourage more young people to sign up partly because, since they’re healthier, their premiums are actually generally gonna be fairly cheap.
RUSH: That’s bull.
OBAMA: They can find good options for less than the cable bill, less than their cell phone bill —
RUSH: That’s bull.
OBAMA: — and it’s just part of growing up, is making sure that you’re taking care of your body, taking care of your health.
RUSH: It’s just part of growing up? Signing up for Obamacare is just part of growing up? Your premiums are gonna be cheaper? Your premiums are gonna be through the roof. Everybody’s premiums are gonna be through the roof. “We want to encourage more young people to sign up, partly because since they’re healthier, their premiums are gonna generally gonna be cheap.” Wrongo! You young people, the reason he wants you to sign up is they’re overcharging you for two reasons.
