On Sunday, podcast host and former “Wheel of Fortune” host Chuck Woolery said “Progressivism is the absolute cancer on our political system right now and has been for over 100 years,” and that Democrats’ idea of socialized medicine “does not fit the American way.”
Speaking on “Fox and Friends Weekend” on Sunday, the “Blunt Force Truth” host also said that Republicans have “no desire” to repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare):
“It’s very interesting, this whole thing in health care - they couldn’t even pass a skinny bill. They can’t repeal this; they have no desire to do it.
“You can take the collective reasoning of Congress, put it in a neutron and still have room for an echo. It is bizarre what is going on there. It’s just ridiculous.”
Woolery responded to the suggestion that Democrats might want to step in and help by warning that progressives’ idea of “help” is actually a cancer plaguing American politics:
“They definitely do and here’s the idea on Democrats helping: Progressivism is the absolute cancer on our political system right now and has been for over 100 years although most people don’t know it. Valdimir Lenin said a hundred years ago, socialized medicine is the keystone in the arc of the socialist state.”
“That’s where the Democrats are going with this; it’s where they’ve always wanted to go with it. It is a socialist model that does not fit the American way and we don’t want any part of it. And it’s very difficult for Republicans to reach across the aisle to a socialist mandate.”
“And that’ll never happen, I don’t think, unless people just go crazy,” Woolery said.
“But, on the other hand,” he cautioned, “Republicans seem to have no desire to pass any kind of repeal. And Mitch McConnell had every opportunity to do this, but everybody keeps saying that Mitch McConnell’s so bright and so brilliant. He has a long, long view of what’s going on. Well, the long view so far is we’re going to lose.”
