Friday on the Rush Limbaugh show, the conservative talk show host received and email from the National Republican Congressional Committee which took the opportunity of Chief Justice John Roberts own words to try and get some funding.
Limbaugh was as taken back by the email’s statement as I was. “Well, excuse me, Mr. National Republican Congressional Committee, but nobody voted to raise taxes,” the talk show host exclaimed. “There were no political choices expressed in this end result. Even the democrats who rammed this bill through in the dead of night claimed it wasn’t a tax. Every poll under the sun shows that the people do not want Obamacare. In fact, some polls show people opposed to it by a margin of 3 to 1. What is this, protect the people from the consequences of their political choices? We need to be protected from the Supreme Court. There’s nowhere to go now.”
Limbaugh continued, “It’s not the job of the court to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices? Really? So anything a Congress passes in any way that they pass it, the court’s gonna uphold? No matter what it is? Because it’s not their job to determine whether or not it’s American? Which is, to me, what constitutional is. Everybody is just laissez-faire here, it’s hands off.”
“Oh, and by the way, if the way our elected officials wrote it doesn’t work, guess what? You people, whose political choices I’m talking about, guess what, I’m going to write something that none of you ever anticipated, that nobody ever made as a choice, and I’m gonna make it the law of the land. What defense do we have?”
Rush then said exactly what I was thinking. “We’re now supposed to go back, throw a bunch of Democrats out of office, hope and pray the Republicans we put into office then have the guts to do the right thing. And if they do, and the whole thing ends up back at the Supreme Court someday, we know all bets are off, because nothing matters anymore. There is no standard. There is no firewall. There’s no backstop. There is no alarm. There is no 911. There’s nowhere to go.”
He’s exactly right. There is nowhere to go. the problem is if the NRCC thinks like this, then what else do they have screwed up in their thinking of what is Constitutional and what isn’t? If you ask me the NRCC and the establishment are much farther to the left than most people realize. Now the question is, how many people gave in support of such a convoluted message by the RNCC?
