   If you follow the Rush Limbaugh show on the EIB network, here is an excerpt of what you heard on Friday from caller Johnny Donovan from Florida:
I am making an appeal. I am going to say something I want you to repeat.  Media Matters, Think Progress, Americans for Democratic Action, Students for a Democrat Society, the Black Panthers, the New Black Panthers, all of you.  Who am I leaving out?  Daily Kos, Democrat Underground, I don't want to leave anybody out.  I want to say something, and I'm begging you to quote me.
Americans had to lose their health care plans in order to for Obamacare to work.  There was never any intention for anybody to keep their current plan.  The only way Obamacare could work, as designed by Obama and the Democrats, is precisely because people would lose their plan.  It had to happen that way.  The only way Obamacare could work, the only way Obama could reform the health care system the way he wants to reform it is precisely if everybody lost their plan.

   The call went on to say:

There was never, ever any intention that you keep your plan, whether you liked it or not.  You were lied to, blatantly, strategically, tactically, and purposefully.  The president of the United States knew that the only way to sell you on his reform was to lie about it, and that was to put you off guard and to relax any tension that you might use to oppose it by telling you that if you like yours, you can keep it, no big deal.  Nothing's gonna happen to you.  Which tells us that the vast majority of the American people like their plans and didn't want anything to change.  And that's why all hell's breaking loose now.
But the simple fact is that for Obamacare to become what he wants it to become, you were never going to keep your plan.  You were never going to be allowed to keep your plan.  It had to happen this way.  By the way, this term "single payer," that does not properly describe what it really is.  In fact, describing what Obama wants and what the Democrats want as single payer might actually be a disservice, because it sounds really clean.  Single payer.  You go to the doctor, and one agency pays for it.  No insurance company, no middlemen, no forms.  You go to the doctor and you submit it to the government, single payer.  That's not what it is.
Single payer is no more than communism.  Maybe socialism, communism, the government owns the means of production, and they're not gonna do that, but they will own the behavior of the hospitals, and they will own the behavior of the doctors by virtue of how they are paid.  But this is pure collectivism.  It is total government control over every aspect of your life.  That's what single payer is.  It's not convenient. It's not an improvement.  It is an overwhelming loss of individual liberty and freedom, and I'll just say it one more time.  You had to lose your plan to get what he wants.

   You can read the entire transcript at; go to the archives if you miss his shows and you can read what was said on his shows.

   Have you wondered why the conservatives or the Tea Party are fighting President Obama and his liberal associates?  There you have it:  what he wants is "an overwhelming loss of individual liberty and freedom".  He, Hillary, Harry Reid, etc. wants to abolish The Constitution.  Just as the IRS has denied religious groups and Tea Party groups tax exempt status, President Obama will pick and chose who receives medical service, which physicians will get paid, what services will be allowed, etc.  I don't know why this is so difficult to understand.

   We have a new regulation by an agency that is part of a run away agency which has no oversight.  The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is an agency inside of the Department of Health and Human Services.  The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has been in the news recently regarding the debacle of Obamacare.  Need I say more?  Now, the FDA has come out with some more new rules to force the behavior of Americans to comply with the way they want us to act.  Let me give you a little background:
  The last time I posted about the FDA was in October of 2011, when they decided to remove over the counter inhalers for patients who needed them to breathe.  I questioned their authority then, but found no answers.  A few days ago, the FDA decided to limit pain medicines for millions of American patients who rely on them to make life tolerable. 
   Now, the FDA has decided to remove trans fats from the American diet.  It was not enough that they required labels on our foods to educate us about the trans fats we are consuming.  Now, they just want to through it all in the garbage so we can't get it!  See, you and I are too stupid to know what we want and what we don't want.  Trans fat is legal to consume, but so are cigarettes.  You will be incarcerated if you partake of any of these things, no matter how legal they are!
   And, by the way, you have to buy health insurance with reproductive health coverage even though you are an 84 year old man.  The latest rumor I heard is that Viagra and Cialis will not be covered in your new insurance policy, but abortion will.  
   According to their website,  the FDA is responsible for:
  • Protecting the public health by assuring that foods (except for meat from livestock, poultry and some egg products which are regulated by the U.S Department of Agriculture are safe, wholesome, sanitary and properly labeled; ensuring that human and veterinary drugs, and vaccines and other biological products and medical devices intended for human use are safe and effective
  • Protecting the public from electronic product radiation
  • Assuring cosmetics and dietary supplements are safe and properly labeled
  • Regulating tobacco products
  • Advancing the public health by helping to speed product innovations
FDA's responsibilities extend to the 50 United States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and other U.S. territories and possessions 

   The question remains:  Who is regulating these agencies and who are they accountable to?  How often are they audited?  I see nowhere in their "responsibilities" where they are responsible for my choices of a diet or my detrimental habits.
