RUSH: We welcome back to the program the vice president of the United States, Mike Pence. Welcome back, sir. Great to have you here with us today.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Rush Limbaugh, it is an honor to be with you always. Thanks for having me on.

RUSH: If this is what happens, Mr. Vice President, why vote Republican? What is the point of voting Republican if the Democrats are gonna continue to win practically 95% of their objectives, such as in this last budget deal?

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Well, look, respectfully, Rush, I actually think this was, as the president said a little a while ago, I think this was actually a clear win for the American people. Look, you’ve had Washington, D.C., that has been, you know, paralyzed by gridlock and partisan infighting for many years, and in this new president you have someone who was able to bring people together and make a $21 billion increase in defense spending at a time of great challenge for America’s interests around the world. And that’s a — you know, he spoke about that today, surrounded by a lot of great members of the United States Air Force. And it was also a piece for years, Democrats in Washington insisted that any increase in defense spending would be matched with an increase in domestic spending.

So you gotta grow government at home if you’re gonna, you know, invest in our national defense. This ended that. I mean, in a very real sense this was a game-changer because we’re just back to putting the safety, security, and the national defense of the American people first, and I think it sends, having just traveled around the Asian-Pacific representing the president over the last couple of weeks, I think this sends a decisive message to the world that under President Trump’s leadership we’re gonna make the strongest military in history even stronger.

RUSH: If I’m the Democrats, $21 billion, 15 billion for defense that was not originally authorized, that’s a small price to pay for continuing to fund refugee resettlement, continuing to fund Planned Parenthood, continuing to fund sanctuary cities, continuing to fund the EPA, and not build the wall. The Democrats clearly think this is a big win, and they’re confident they can block Trump’s agenda after this spending bill for the rest of Trump’s term. There isn’t anything of the president’s agenda in this budget, and people are beginning to ask, when’s that gonna happen? If you’re gonna shut it down in September, why not now?

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Yeah.

RUSH: If you complain about 60 votes today, why not go budget reconciliation for 51 votes and smoke ’em?

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Rush, Rush —

RUSH: Yes.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Rush, let me be real clear. The number one priority of President Trump is to rebuild our military, to restore the arsenal of democracy. And I gotta tell you, to get Democrats in Washington, D.C., to agree to a $21 billion increase in a short-term budget bill — and, you know, the president’s calling for the largest increase in military spending since the Reagan administration in the upcoming budget, I think is no small — it’s no small accomplishment.

Also, this bill includes the largest increase in border security funding in 10 years, with enough, as the president said to make a down payment on a border wall. We’re replacing ineffective and failing fencing and wall with an unbreakable barrier. We’re beginning to build the wall already, and look at the statistics, Rush. Illegal immigration, border crossings, are down more than 60 percent —

RUSH: That’s right. The fear factor. The fear factor is working there, no question.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Well, it’s not fear factor. It’s leadership. You have in Secretary Kelly someone who is acting on the president’s direction. We are enforcing the laws of this country. We’re vigorously removing criminal illegal immigrants from our streets, including these dangerous gang members that are being removed from our major cities. It’s all having its effect. But I want to tell you and your listeners, this budget bill includes the single largest increase in border security funding in 10 years.

Throw in there, Rush, remember, this is an issue you’ve been a great champion of, educational choice for disadvantaged kids for as long as I’ve been listening to you, and it’s just about as long as you’ve been on the air, and President Trump insisted here in this bill and got that we’re continuing the educational choice program here in our nation’s capital, and we’re gonna continue to expand educational opportunities for some of our most vulnerable kids. There’s a lot in here. This is just a five month bill. This is a short term bill that finishes out this year, but I think it demonstrates that, in President Trump’s leadership, the American people once again have a president who can bring together both parties, who can move the ball forward on the priorities of the American people, and when the next budget comes around next fall you’ll see even more of President Trump’s leadership and priorities reflected.

RUSH: Mr. Vice President, we’ve been told this for 15 years, we’ll get ’em next time, after every continuing resolution —

THE VICE PRESIDENT: No, we got ’em this time.

RUSH: — we’ll get ’em next time, we’ll kick the can down the road, we’ll get ’em next time.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: We got ’em this time, $21 billion in defense spending at a time — I gotta tell you, I was out there visiting troops in South Korea. I was standing on the deck of the USS Reagan in the harbor in Japan. Look, the president has made it clear, his number one priority is national defense and national security. And to say in this very first budget bill, instead of getting gridlock, instead of getting a government shutdown, which Washington’s been pretty good at for a while, we actually made process and we’re making a significant investment — (crosstalk)

RUSH: Okay, but why then is the president now suggesting a budget shutdown in September or October? If it’s no good now, why is it good then? You guys were sent there to drain the swamp. There’s a clear Trump agenda that just isn’t seeable. It’s not visible in this budget, and some people are getting concerned that there’s more concern for bipartisanship and crossing the aisle, working with Democrats, than there is in draining the swamp and actually peeling away all of the roughage that is preventing actually moving forward here on so many of these issues that affect people domestically.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Yeah. Well, I think people look at the efforts of the last hundred days. I was with the president in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Saturday. It took him an hour just to outline the highlights of the last hundred days. I mean, he signed more bills into law than any president in the first hundred days since Harry Truman. Thirteen different bills rolling back an avalanche of regulation and red tape on businesses across this country, 500,000 jobs have been created since the first of the year. And you mentioned the Planned Parenthood issue. I know that’s emerged. You know, the president recently signed a bill into law that ends the Obama-era regulation that blocks states from banning Planned Parenthood funding. Now states can ban Planned Parenthood funding like we tried to do in the state of Indiana. And of course the health care bill that we hope comes up soon actually defunds Planned Parenthood altogether, while we repeal and replace Obamacare.

RUSH: I did hear that.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: This president is fighting every single day —

RUSH: Yeah.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: — to advance his agenda, and I couldn’t be more proud to be standing shoulder to shoulder with him.

RUSH: Planned Parenthood is in the repeal of Obamacare, the new health care — what’s the status? What is this, if it passes, what are we gonna get?

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Well, what you’re gonna get is the beginning of the end of Obamacare and the beginning of a better health care system for the American people. This first bill —

RUSH: What is so hard about finding votes to get rid of something that’s just destroying the health care system?

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Well, you know, I mean, the founders of this country created a system where it was hard for Congress to do things. It was also hard for Congress to undo things. And Obamacare has failed. You’ve described it more accurately than anybody else in the country. I mean, every promise of Obamacare has failed. They said if you like your doctor, you can keep it. That was false. If you like your insurance, you can keep it. That was false. They said premiums would go down. Premiums have skyrocketed across the country.

What this bill does is, first and foremost, it repeals the taxes and penalties that are at the core of Obamacare. We expand health savings accounts, which you’ve been a champion of for decades, giving people more choices in consumer directed care. And then we block grant or provide great new flexibility in Medicaid back to the states. And the combination of all of this, I truly do believe, is the beginning of the end of Obamacare. And that’ll take more executive action by Secretary Price. It’s gonna take another piece of bill to sweep the final vestiges of it away and to allow people to buy health insurance across state lines. But Congress has an opportunity right now to literally step back in the direction of a health care system that is based upon the choices of the American people, the ability to choose your doctor, choose your health insurance, and a step away from the government mandated insurance and disastrous results of Obamacare.

RUSH: So we’re still looking at essentially a phase 2 and a phase 3, because I know that one of the plans is for the secretary, Tom Price, to be able to wield the identical power that what’s-her-face had from the Obama administration, that the power in Obamacare is really invested in the secretary of Health and Human Services —

THE VICE PRESIDENT: It is. A great deal of latitude. And I’ll tell you, secretary Price is already about that now. We are working diligently around the clock at Health and Human Services to be poised to work with states to give all new flexibility —

RUSH: Yanking a bunch of Obama things out there that Sebelius put in?

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Well, I mean the simple fact is that the power that was vested in the secretary of Health and Human Services to implement Obamacare can also be used to unleash the power of a free market —

RUSH: Right, if you don’t — (crosstalk)

THE VICE PRESIDENT: — we’ll have to do one more bill, Rush, to sweep away the remaining vestiges and the president’s vision to let people buy health insurance across state lines. But this is an enormously important first step toward taking the American people back to a health care system that’s based on freedom of choice, freedom to choose your doctor, the free market principles that you and I know will increase quality and reduce the cost of health care in America.

RUSH: I know we’re up to your time limit here, but I gotta ask you if you have time about Kim Jong-un, North Korea. You were just there. The president has expressed a willingness to meet with him under the right conditions. What is the real threat posed by this guy? What are we prepared to do about it?

THE VICE PRESIDENT: No question that the regime in North Korea represents the most serious threat to security, not only in the region, but in the world today. This is a regime that continues to demonstrate through its actions a flouting of international expectation. I mean, the world community is united is the goal of a nuclear-free Korean peninsula, and yet for a quarter of a century now the Kim regime has ignored and, frankly, deceived the world community through one failed negotiation after another.

And the president’s made it very clear that we are not going to negotiate for the right to negotiate. That we need to see the regime in North Korea abandon their ballistic missile program, abandon their nuclear weapons program, to stand down. And at that point, in combination with our allies in the region, and in combination with China, or once North Korea has been isolated economically and diplomatically and changed their behavior, then the prospect of discussions could be considered, but not before.

RUSH: I have an idea about this. Apparently, the guy cannot successfully launch anything. The story is that we are hacking the guy’s launches; within seconds after launch, the missiles blow up. Keep doing that ’cause I’m sure every time that happens, he shoots some of his engineers. If you hack enough launches, he’ll shoot his entire government and not have anybody left to threaten with.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Rush, it’s an enormously serious moment.

RUSH: (laughing)

THE VICE PRESIDENT: I remember standing at the DMZ looking at in the faces of North Korean guards and, uh… And you were literally looking into the face of repression.

RUSH: Oh, totally. They’re robotic evil.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: For now, we have to send a clear message that while we’re committed to work with our allies in the region — to work especially in renewed ways with China — to economically and diplomatically isolate North Korea, but all options are on the table. President Trump is gonna continue to drive toward a policy that achieves a historic goal of removing nuclear weapons from the Korean Peninsula. And now the world knows he means business.

RUSH: Mr. Vice President, thank you for your time. I know we went a little bit over on your allotment, and I appreciate your patience here. Thank you so much. It’s always great to have you here.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Thank you, Rush. It’s an honor. Just appreciate… appreciate your voice in the national firmament.

RUSH: Thank you, sir. That’s Vice President Mike Pence on the EIB Network.

Everything, including this stinking budget bill, would be much worse if the Arkansas Bitch would be sitting in the White Hut!

I'll never, ever be happy about these RINO backstabbers and this rotten deal as I expected more from Trump. A veto and shut down at least to move it more to our side rather than the RATS getting the Lions share!

Maybe. But Pence seems like a nice guy, but besides being a Republican, he is a lawyer. It is in their DNA to spin everything, to try to convince us dark is day, day is night, that a shit sandwich is a med rare T-Bone.

" I'll never, ever be happy about these RINO backstabbers and this rotten deal as I expected more from Trump. A veto and shut down at least to move it more to our side rather than the RATS getting the Lions share! " I am not happy either. I think our only option is to go to DC, with a lot of rope, and turn them into windchimes.

Best line I have seen in a while. 2 thumbs up on that one.

Exercising rights is only radical to two people, Tyrants and Slaves. Which are YOU? Our ignorance has driven us into slavery and we do not recognize it.

No it wouldn't. It would be the same. The Democrats won everything.

The only difference is that you'd feel worse about it, because the Democrats were in charge.

Planned Parenthood gets enough money to offer to satan, as little human blood sacrifices, between 35,000 and 70,000 babies trapped in the womb.

President Trump MUST veto this budget.

I am disgusted.

It is time to hunt down pedophiles.

Same here. I believe Pedophiles and baby killers belong to the same club.

Bob, like you, and a lot of others, I am equally disgusted!!

I voted for Trump, and encouraged many of my family & friends to do so.

But I was expecting him to defund Planned Parenthood. If he does not veto this budget, then he IS NOT with us, he is AGAINST US !!! And he will show himself to be against all of those innocent unborn children that will be murdered !!!

If he signs it through, it will prove that he is a lying POS !! I will then be done with him. We have been betrayed enough, NO MORE !!!
