Today’s dumbass quote of the day comes to you from the undisputed king of right wing bullshit, Rush Limbaugh. On his radio show on Halloween, he delivered this moronic rant about health insurance policies under the Affordable Care Act covering things he doesn’t like:
“As usual, folks, Obama has things exactly backwards. Insurance is being stretched to cover things it should never have to cover and it didn’t have to cover until Obamacare came along and mandated these things get covered, and all that does is drive up prices.”
“Insurance is being stretched to cover things it should never have to cover and it didn’t have to cover until Obamacare came along and mandated these things get covered, and all it does is drive up prices. like breast pumps and birth control pills and wellness plans.”
“It’s all of that stuff, all of this touchy-feely liberal do-good stuff that ought never be part of insurance policies that is causing the price increase. Buy your own birth control pill! Buy your own breast pump!”
Buy your own viagra. I mean, have your maid buy your own viagra in her name. That’s what you did, isn’t it Rush? And all those painkillers you went to multiple doctors to get prescriptions for, which I’m sure did nothing to soothe the psychic pain of being you. And if you get cancer from smoking those cigars, you should pay for your own chemo too. I mean, if we’re casting judgment on what someone else’s insurance should pay for, you might wanna check your own closet for skeletons.
