Rush: For the first time in my life I am ashamed of my country

Rush says that given the absurd arguments being made over 44 billion in sequester cuts that aren’t even real cuts and how ‘drastic’ an effect it will have on the country, in light of this he says for the first time in his life he really is ashamed of his country. And he’s not joking either.

Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in my life I am ashamed of my country. To be watching all of this, to have my intelligence – all of us – to have our common sense and intelligence insulted the way it is….it just makes me ashamed.

Seriously man, here we get worked up over 44 billion dollars – that’s the total amount of money that will not be spent that was scheduled to be spent this year. And in truth we’re going to spend more this year than we spent last year. We’re just not going to spend as much as projected. It’s all baseline budgeting. There is no real cut below a baseline of zero. There just isn’t.

And yet here they come, sucking us in, roping us in. Panic here. Fear there. Crisis. Destruction. No meat inspection. No cops. No teachers. No firefighters. No air traffic control.

I’m sorry, my days of getting roped in to all of this are over. We have the media play along with all of this, the ruling class – both parties – play along with all of this.

It’s insulting. I don’t know how else to describe it.

There’s more. Listen below:
