President Barack Obama’s retreat from requiring Catholic institutions to provide healthcare policies that include birth control does not mean the administration is caving on its intent to trample on the Constitution, Rush Limbaugh said today on his radio show.
 
“There isn’t any cave,” Limbaugh said of Friday’s decision to withdraw the mandate. “We’re supposed to applaud this? We’re supposed to think that we have emerged with a big victory here?

“Freedom doesn’t mean anything to this guy — to me, this is breathtaking — this is an incredible sight to behold here,” Limbaugh said. “He’s still getting everything he wants . . . and in the process, trampling all over the Constitution.

"There's no compromise, no negotiation. There's no phony balance here. Obama is simply not empowered to interfere with religious liberty."

Limbaugh said the United States continues to lose “freedom and liberty inch by inch” and referred to a story about a female passenger in Wyoming who was not allowed to board a flight because no female security agents were available to pat her down.

“We have yet another example of life in America under the thumb of ever-expanding state with central planning — otherwise known as well intentioned liberalism,” he said. “We’re living in a country that is becoming unrecognizable.”
