On Democrats’ attempted demonization of profit in health care…

Everybody's hurting, the economy's stagnating, but we all want to be well. Why should people be making a profit while they administer health care? It's not fair! It's greedy! It's selfish! And it leads to some people not even being treated. If they can't pay, if they don't have insurance, that means no profit. That means they don't get treated. That means they die! See what capitalism does? It kills! We're on the cusp. We're on the edge of this becoming the new reality.

On President Obama’s interpretation of the weakness of the U.S. economy…

Obama wants you to believe it’s in decline because of capitalism. Obama and the Democrat party want you to think our economy’s in decline because of its own structural failures and inability. They want you to believe that $5 gasoline is what you get with an economy where everybody’s out there fending for themselves. When there’s nobody looking out for people, when there’s nobody with compassion, when there’s nobody guaranteeing fairness, this is what happens. And of course the U.S. economy is in decline only because it’s in the shackles of socialism.

[Previously-broadcast material] On the Occupy movement’s ignorant criticisms of capitalism…

Everything that’s happened to this country since 2008 is not capitalism. Bailouts. Government buying car companies. Investing in phony, fraudulent green energy things. This is not capitalism that’s happened in this country in the last three years. We haven’t had any capitalism. And the truth of the matter is that’s why we’re in the situation we are in. We’ve already abandoned it with this regime.

Walter E. Williams is filling in for Rush today… On the unequal reaping of economic rewards in the free market system…

Now you take somebody like Joanne Rowling… she is the Harry Potter lady. And she’s a billionaire. She’s in that top one percent. Although she’s in Britain, she’s in that top one percent. Now how did Rowling become so wealthy and unequal to the rest of us? Well I think the entire blame for this social injustice lies at the feet of the world’s children. The children are responsible. Because her wealth is a direct result of more than 500 million Harry Potter book sales. And if the children did not have their parents go buy them these Harry Potter books, she wouldn’t be rich, she wouldn’t be in that top one percent. Or you take my friend – actually he’s not my friend, I just like the way the guy plays – Lebron James. He is an animal on the basketball court. And this guy has 43 million dollars a year. And that’s very unequal to the rest of us. That’s socially unjust. Now how does Lebron James get 43 million dollars a year? Well again, it’s the children. It’s the children getting their fathers – instead of children staying home and doing homework and their fathers helping their wives out with the kitchen duties, they’re going downtown to the sports arena and plunk down $100 to see Lebron James play basketball. And then I think there’s a form of gross discrimination with this as well. Because I can play basketball too. But nobody’s paying me 43 million dollars.

On the late Steve Jobs…

He was as profit-oriented as any capitalist you have ever met… One of the stories that the left is very uncomfortable with about Jobs is when he took Apple back over in 1997 – he went back after being exiled, he went back in 1997 – and after a few months became interim CEO, then full-time. And the first thing he did was cancel every philanthropic program that Apple had. Because they were in a loss situation… And after Apple started turning profitable he did not re-implement… the philanthropic programs that Apple had in place… Jobs would in no way give any indication to anybody anytime anywhere what his political leanings were – they were anything but liberal… when it came to running that business of his he was as capitalist as any capitalist this world has ever produced has been… all of Apple’s products, 99% of them, are made in China. They’re made in China because if they weren’t they’d be prohibitively expensive made in the United States. The fact that he would tell Obama that unions are destroying the schools is perfectly true! It’s perfectly true.
