Born at the Crest of the Empire

Rush Limbaugh gets alot of press for saying that if healthcare passes, he'd leave the country and go to Costa Rica.

...only thing is, Costa Rica has single payer healthcare....

(If it keeps getting colder, I'm leaving. I'm going to Canada!)



  • A perfect example of the clinical insanity that is the far right...

    Ignorant, angry... armed and dangerous.

  • I saw the clip. I think he just pulled the name Costa Rica out of his back pocket.
    But I love the fact that he's using an ultimatum. It means he's scared, presumably of seeing corporate dominance crumble.

  • Anon, Maybe that's the reason to pass healthcare....

  • the healthcare debate, in my opinion, has always been about whether the corporate, for-profit model is the way to take care of sick people, or whether it's better done by a not-for-profit model.
    it's rarely framed that way in the media, for the reason that (I think) practically the entire media is run for-profit.
    but clearly not-for-profit is the superior way to deliver useful and least-expensive healthcare. the only 'problem' is that doing so leaves one fewer way for corporations to make bucketloads of cash. and they don't like that.

  • I vbroadly agree, although that debate was decided almost before the debate began when single payer was taken of the table. The "public option was kind of a halfway, but even that's pretty dead now.
