From The New York Daily News:
Conservative radio loudmouth Rush Limbaugh learned this week there’s nothing wrong with his heart – and there’s nothing wrong with the nation’s health care system.
Severe chest pains landed him in a Hawaii hospital Wednesday.
“The pain was real, and they don’t know what caused it,” Limbaugh said.
Turning from his health to politics, Limbaugh declared Friday he got the best health treatment in the world “right here in the United States of America.”
“I don’t think there’s one thing wrong with the United States health system,” Limbaugh said.
From ABC NEWS:
Limbaugh, 58, underwent an angiogram, or an imaging of the arteries and heart, to determine what caused the pain “like I have never experienced before,” he said.
[He used] the news conference to take a jab at Democrats and their top policy priority — healthcare reform that aims to give coverage to 47 million uninsured Americans and lower costs.
“Based on what happened to me here, I don’t think there is one thing wrong with the American healthcare system. It is working just fine,” he said.
Limbaugh, a multimillionaire, said he got no special treatment, but the staff made his stay “almost like a hotel.”
