GOP Rep. Takes a Shot at Limbaugh for Piling on His ‘You Can Keep Your Plan’ Bill

Republican Congressman Fred Upton pushed the bill that passed the House on Friday to let Americans keep their health care plans if they like them, but Rush Limbaugh argued against it, saying it was essentially throwing a lifeline to Democrats and President Obama. Upton responded on Hugh Hewitt‘s show, saying Limbaugh didn’t have the right information about the bill.

Upton said, “It would have been nice if he had checked in with us and gotten some information.” He argued that this was an important step to help the millions of people losing their insurance in the real world so they don’t continue to suffer.

Hewitt also challenged Upton on why the bill wasn’t available online before the vote, but Upton assured him it was, and argued that there is no mandate of any kind in his proposal, which now moves on to the Senate.
