Democrats Create False Storyline to Distract from What They've Done

RUSH- We're going to get to this totally contrived Republicans causing all kinds of threats to Democrats story. I'll tell you, it's a total diversion. The Democrats are so losing the information war on the health care bill that they're trying to do anything to distract everybody's attention from it, and it's as I said yesterday, this is all part of a plan to criminalize dissent. Let me just ask you a question. When is the last time you can recall a bunch of conservatives having a riot? When is the last time you can recall a bunch of conservatives disrupting a congressional hearing? When is the last time you can recall a bunch of conservatives coming out with books and movies on how to assassinate a president? The simple fact of the matter is that this kind of behavior that these people are running around scared to death of and accusing people of, they are the authors of this kind of behavior. These are the people that wrote the book on how to do this. Our side doesn't do this kind of stuff. This is all made up, 95% of it's made up and it's being done to divert everybody's attention.

Even Pelosi's getting in on the act now. She held a news conference today: "I don't want this to be a distraction." That's all she wants. That's exactly what they want. They are losing the information war on explaining the health care bill, news keeps coming out about it. The compilation of small businesses that are going to have to lay off workers, there's a company in Massachusetts, the largest manufacturer of defibrillators, heart defibrillators. Their business is wrecked, they say. They're going to add six to $10 million of expenses over the course of however many years. The reality is just now starting to hit people. I'll have more details on this as the program unfolds, such as this one. "Relief to seniors facing high prescription drug costs is one of the first changes to come under the new health care overhaul. But ultimately that won't offset the relentless increase in retirees' medical expenses. A couple retiring this year will need a quarter of a million dollars, on average, to cover medical expenses in retirement, according to a study to be released Thursday by Fidelity Investments.

"The estimate is up 4.2 percent from Fidelity's projection last year. The Boston-based financial services company has updated its estimate annually since 2002 as part of its business helping employers design workplace benefits programs. The study is based on projections for a couple of 65-year-olds retiring this year with Medicare coverage. The estimate factors in the federal program's premiums, co-payments and deductibles, as well as out-of-pocket prescription costs. The study assumes no employer provided insurance in retirement, and a life expectancy of 85 for women and 82 for men." Now, mind you, this is before all the supposed Medicare cuts that are built into Obama's health care reform bill. These Medicare cuts are upwards now of $600 billion. So this number can only go up. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I'm just repeating here what the State-Controlled Associated Press is saying. Retired couples may need $250,000 for health care expenses after they retire.
