Mark Belling is filling in for Rush today… On the connection between “helicopter” (i.e. overprotective) parents and the federal government...
We now have a helicopter government. Barack Obama’s our helicopter President. He believes that we’ve got to give everybody healthcare, that healthcare costs are going up so much that we can’t figure out a way to make this work via the free market and that it has to become the next entitlement. He wants to take Medicare and Social Security off the table for any kind of reform, tweaks, or changes at all because we can’t survive if we don’t have them in exactly the kind of form that we’re in right now. The whole nature of the stimulus program – “The only way we can get through our recession is if I (President Obama) spend a trillion dollars and throw it out to my friends in government – that will get the economy started again.” He’s the helicopter President.
