Irresistible Offer: Limbaugh Promises to Move to Costa Rica If Health Care Passes

Rush Limbaugh may have given the Obama Administration the very thing needed to pass the health care legislation by a wide margin. Limbaugh has promised to leave the country if it passes.

The good thing is that, no matter how the legislation might improve or diminish health care in the United States, Limbaugh’s departure would cut the nation’s high blood pressure in half.

Here is the exchange for future reference:

CALLER: If the health care bill passes, where would you go for health care yourself? And the second part of that is, what would happen to the doctors, do they have to participate in the federal program, or could they opt out of it? […]

LIMBAUGH: My guess in even in Canada and even in the UK, doctors have opted out. And once they’ve opted, they can’t see anybody Medicare, Medicaid, or what will become the exchanges. They have to have a clientele of private patients that will pay them a retainer and it’ll be a very small practice. I don’t know if that’s been outlawed in the Senate bill. I don’t know. I’ll just tell you this, if this passes and it’s five years from now and all that stuff gets implemented — I am leaving the country. I’ll go to Costa Rica.

That should do it. Call the vote quick.

  1. Elaine, you may have to modify your excellent poetry. This ending line – “And full of hot air!” is not accurate. One of the primary side-effects of OxyContin is constipation. So, as we suspected, Rush is full of something besides hot air!

  2. Left, Right, what’s the difference? The paradigm is a smoke and mirrors construct. Although, calling this an ‘irresistible offer’ is hilarious.

  3. LimpBalm is going to be very disappointed with Costa Rica. The age of consent there is 15, which means all the boys he desires are “off limits.”

  4. Hey rush,now you know where your shoes were.

  5. What a turd.

    “…Costa Rica’s hybrid government-private health care system provides comprehensive universal coverage to all residents — and even sells affordable policies to soon-to-be visitors like Limbaugh. The government owns several major public hospitals and operates small clinics in almost every community. Workers are required to contribute 15% of their salaries to health insurance and the unemployed “obtain public funding for all health services, including prescription drugs.” At least a third of all Costa Rican residents receive some care in the private sector and the government regularly purchases services from private providers. The system is not without its problems, but it boasts a higher ranking from the World Health Organization — Costa Rica is 36, United States 37 — and has higher life expectancy and lower infant mortality rates. Costa Rica also spends less per capita on health care than the United States and insures almost all of its residents.”

  6. He’s been ready to retire for a long time so the promise is just more empty words … Sarah will take over and the beat will go on.

  7. BIL–

    Thanks for spoiling my day! As you say–“All talk, no walk.” Remember how the blowhard chickenhawk reportedly got out of military duty in Vietnam? A boil on his buttocks! I’d say the man’s a boil on the buttocks of America.
