Rush Limbaugh, who went to the hospital with chest pains last week, says there's nothing wrong with health care in the United States.
Limbaugh was admitted to Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu on Wednesday afternoon after he experienced chest pains while vacationing in Hawaii. According to Limbaugh, doctors could not determine the exact cause of his pain.Oh, well, let's just stop trying to fix what ain't broke, then! If America's healthcare system works for Rush Limbaugh, who could find fault with it?
The right-wing talk radio king used the moment for a political shot at President Obama's massive effort to reform health care, saying he got the best medical care "right here in the United States of America." "I don't think there's one thing wrong with the United States health system," he said.
Of course, Rush Limbaugh is happy with his healthcare. Rush Limbaugh is a multimillionaire. Everything works well for multimillionaires. If Limbaugh had no insurance at all, he could pay for major surgery out of pocket and never notice the expense.
Tell you what Rush, the next time your Oxycontin habit causes you chest pains, put on a disguise and go sit in an emergency room all night the same way somebody with no health insurance would have to. For an added measure of authenticity, go to an understaffed inner-city hospital. Then, come back and give me your honest assessment.
