Rush, You Big Fat Socialist You!! Mwhaa!

First we find out that Sarah Palin is a Socialist, but Rush Limbaugh too?  Sarah Palin’s grandson receives Socialized health care so if it’s good enough for her family, it should be good enough for the rest of us;

“Sarah Palin can well afford any costs for her grandson,unless, she is now accepting the idea of socialized medicine.  It would seem so, because Tripp, is on socialized medicine.”

We now have Rush Limbaugh touting Socialized medicine, not once, but twice!  After his hospital stay in Hawaii, he was sweet enough to tell us how great their health care was.

This time, he says he will move out of  the country he professes to love if health care reform is passed. That should be enough to help the bill pass in itself.

Here’s a little information about the health care system in Costa Rica, Rush Limbaugh’s future home:

Costa Rica has universal health care, one of the best health systems in Latin America. As always with nationalized health care, expect red tape and long waits, but the quality of Costa Rica’s health care is excellent. Private health care is also available, very affordable, and high quality. Many doctors speak English and have received training in Europe, Canada, or the U.S. There are three large, private hospitals that most expatriates use: CIMA hospital in Escazú, Clinica Biblica in San José, and Clinica Católica in San José-Guadalupe

tatistics from the World Health Organization frequently place Costa Rica in the top country rankings in the world for long life expectancy, often even ahead of Great Britain and the United States, even though the per-capita income of Costa Ricans is about one-tenth that of the U.S. and the U.K. Arguably, one reason for this is the slower pace of living in Costa Rica. And, of course, the healthy, fresh, non-preservative-laden foods found there, and the welcoming tropical climate. Costa Rica just seems to be a healthy place to live.

    Do you even know what socialized medicine is?…

    The term Socialized Medicine is used to describe a system of publicly administered national health care. This system can range from programs in which the government runs hospitals and health organizations to programs in which there is national universal health care. Although, these programs are often associated with communist run countries, every Western Country except the United States has some form of socialized medicine.

    Quit spouting off saying that we have socialized health care when we do not. If you did some research you would know this. But then again…what progressive/liberal does research? Heh.

    This post was simply created to slam Rush. Stop attacking and start thinking. PAWNED.

    I think most of these “arguments” are false and can be addressed with a simple question.

    If you are a US Citizen, will you rush off to Costa Rica (Canada, Great Britain, Cuba) for any significant medical procedure or treatment?

    I don’t think you can reasonably question the quality of Heath Care we have in the US. There are obvious problems that need to be addressed. But the majority of American Citizens do not want what is currently before congress.

    Rush didn’t say he would move to Costa Rica if the bill passes. He said some health care companies are setting up clinics in Costa Rica for wealthy patients, and if he needed to, he would fly down for treatment rather than jump through all the hoops Obamacare will create.

    It’s not hard to check out what he actually said, but then you wouldn’t have anything to scream about, would you?

    LOL. Rush was saying that if we have government healthcare and going to the Dr becomes like going to get your drivers license renewed than he would rather fly to Costa Rica for treatment.

    “If I have to get thrown into this massive government health care insurance business and end up going to the driver’s license office every day when I need to go to the doctor, yeah, I’ll go to Costa Rica for treatment, not move there,” he told listeners Tuesday, according to a transcript on his website.

    I did not hear Rush’s comments on Costa Rica, so I don’t know what the context was. I will comment on Hawaii, since I did hear his remarks on the healthcare he received there.

    You may not know this, but Limbaugh does not have health insurance. He is obviously very wealthy and does not want the hassle of filling out forms and dealing with the paperwork associated with medical insurance. He simply gave them his credit card when he checked in and the Hospital was more than happy to bill him for his care. His only remark was that the Dr’s and the quality of care was excellent – that we have great medical care in this Country under the present system. Self-pay by credit card is not socialized medicine by any stretch of the imagination.
