Number One Reason to Pass Healthcare Reform: Limbaugh Promises to Flee Country
March 9, 2010
(ChattahBox)—If you needed another reason to support the passage of healthcare reform, to fix our broken health insurance system there is this: Hate talk radio host Rush Limbaugh promised to leave the country, if a healthcare reform bill became enacted into law. Limbaugh, a frequent critic of healthcare reform and President Obama, announced that he would flee to the Central American Country of Costa Rica. Ironically, Costa Rica’s healthcare system provides socialized healthcare for all of its residents and is ranked higher than the United States.
During yesterday’s radio program, hate talker Limbaugh launched into his usual attack on reform, falsely claiming that the country would experience “massive increases” in health insurance premiums if healthcare reform passed, as well as reduced services, less equipment, and poorer-quality health care. The bigoted porcine bloviator then attacked President Obama as a “nobody” who “hasn’t fixed anything.”
When a caller asked Limbaugh: Where would you go for healthcare —– If private doctors have to go into the federal program? Limbaugh responded that he would flee the country:
LIMBAUGH: “I’ll just tell you this,” Limbaugh said. “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.”
Late year, Costa Rica was voted as the most happiest country in the world, according to the Happy Planet Index. Hopefully, when Limbaugh flees the Socialist, Fascist, Marxist United States, his hate and bigotry won’t lower the happy rating of the beautiful tropical paradise.
