Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh compared Obamacare to slavery during the September 25th edition of The Rush Limbaugh Show.

“Well over 50 percent of the American people don’t want [Obamacare],” the radio host said. “And the Republicans are like ‘well we can’t do anything about it. The law’s the law, It’s the law of the land.’  Well, so was slavery one time, the law of the land.”

While Limbaugh claims ‘well over 50 percent’ of Americans don’t want Obamacare, a recent CNBC survey found most people are against defunding the new health care law.

According to the CNBC All-America Economic Survey, Americans oppose defunding Obamacare by a plurality of 44 percent to 38 percent.
