This clip is of Rush Limbaugh from April 8, 2010 talking about how fraud is “criminalized when applied to the private sector, but praised as compassion when practiced by the federal government and liberal politicians.”

“Why is the government not held to the same standards as those of us in the private sector? By liberal policies, I mean taking money from people, lying to them about it, lying to them about what you’re actually doing, cooking the books, fixing the numbers, bribes and payoffs.  If you or I tried just one move like the Cornhusker Kickback, if you and I tried one thing in the private sector, like the Louisiana Purchase, we would be indicted and sent up to jail and made an example of.”

“The problem we have is that statism, which is this regime, takes what would otherwise be criminal behavior, and treats it as a virtue.  The media treats it as a virtue, all of this criminal behavior.  They have institutionalized fraud, and they call it progress.  And there’s no sign that it’s gonna stop.”

The transcripts of the clip can be read here.
