Pass Health Care Reform NOW!

I don’t care if you’re for it or against it, we have an unprecedented opportunity here that we should absolutely not miss.  This is just the push Congress needs to pass reform.
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.
The only other way we’ll ever get Limbaugh to Costa Rica is if they start giving away free oxycodone and hydrocodone.  Failing that, passing health care reform may be our only chance.



Pass it now!

Please go, Rush! - so that the rest of us can stop threatening to move.

What did Costa Rica ever do to you?

Don't believe everything you hear. Rush didn't say he would move there. He said he would go there for health care. Where did you hear otherwise?

I got it straight from his own mouth when he said, "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.". He didn't qualify the statement although he did "correct" it today.

What's hilarious is that Costa Rica has a single payer (read socialist) healthcare system. I guess it's good enough for Rush to fly there to get but not good enough for other Americans.
