On his Wednesday night radio show, Mark Levin pushed back against those who are calling for Republicans not to fight to defund Obamacare as part of the budget fight in the U.S. Congress.
The conservative talk show host and author went on a nearly 13-minute rant about how President Barack Obama believes that no future Congress can undo what a one-term Democratic Congress decided in 2010.
“One Congress for two years — that’s all it was, to impose its will and this president, this imperial president — he insists that no future Congress, not this one, not any one shall have the constitutional authority to reverse course,” Levin said. “So in other words, ladies and gentlemen, what that one Congress did when they had supermajorities in the House and the Senate and as soon as you could get to them — you threw them out in the House. You almost threw them out in the Senate. As soon as you could get to them, you addressed this issue of Obamacare.”
“Obama says, ‘Too damn bad. I’m re-elected, I’m the imperial president. I’m going to shut down the whole damn government. You’re going to take Obamacare. I shoved it down your throat. Now you’re going to digest it, and you’re going to like it, whether you like it or not,’” Levin continued.
Levin, the author of “The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic,” went on to claim part of Obama’s strategy was to shut down the government in order to force people to want Obamacare.
He also addressed congressional Republicans, who have slowly gravitated to passing a continuing resolution to fund the government with the exception of Obamacare. Levin insisted that the Senate and House GOP follow through or face the consequences from their constituents.
“Finally, they get it,” he said. “Now I don’t completely trust them. It’s one thing to propose, it’s one thing to vote. But you got to follow through.”
