Health Care’s No Problem…If You’re a Multimillionaire

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.

…snip…

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.

…snip…

[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.”

Check out the picture at the Honolulu Star Bulletin. All patients are accompanied by the chief of the Dept. of Cardiovascular Diseases when they’re discharged, aren’t they? I’m pretty sure most people’s insurance policies cover that.

    They found a heart? Dang.

    Rushbo faked it. He didn’t have chest pains or a heart attack. He’s on a mission to prove that there is nothing wrong with the health care system. That’s what it is all about.
    I think he’s a big, fat lying liar.
    What do you want to bet that he gets some usage out of his hospital stay?
    He’s chasing ratings and fighting health care reform.

    Why don’t you all have the balls to just come right out and say it. You wish he had died.

  4. Has anyone suggested that the super-rich have problems getting health care? Of course, the dittoheads lap this stuff up as they all claim not to have their opinions spoon-fed to them.

    • if that was some poor slob having chest pains, he’d still be sitting in the emergency room waiting for a doctor to look at him. if he was someone with insurance, he would have been discharged from the emergency room and told to follow up with his primary doctor. then the primary doc would tell him to see a specialist, but the insurance company won’t approve the visit. after threats of a lawsuit, they’ll approve the visit with the cardiologist, but they won’t approve the tests. in the meantime, the guy goes home to find bills for thousands of dollars from the hospital, which the insurance company won’t pay, because he didn’t get permission from the insurance company before he went to the emergency room.

  5. So he admits it!

    Hawaii IS a part of the United States, where Obama was born!

    • someone over at the big orange posed a question–if rushbo had kicked the bucket, and his death certificate was issued by the state of hawaii, would he really be dead? have to wonder if orly taitz would question it.

  6. when I heard this while in the car I almost barfed.

  7. Saw him on Shatner the other night. He has a hole in his head and doesn’t wear socks. Did he become the Worlds Foremost Authority with the passing of Prof. Irwin Corey?

    Hell, I make no bones about wishing he’d died.
    I think he’s an evil son of a bitch whose best career move would be death.
    See, guys like him make girls like me have horrible thoughts about wishing guys like him were dead. Therefore, if he was dead I could get back into my happy, spiritual place.

    • zippy! i’ve been wondering where you’ve been hiding! i don’t wish the rancid bastard dead, but if he had died, i wouldn’t have mourned him in the least. when he’s gone, there will be another one just like him to take his place.

  9. Your sad little troll doesn’t realize that you are testicularly challenged? Might want to wear a ribbon in your hair or something.

    • his last (and i think only other) comment here was some ridiculous crap about princess sarah being elected in 2012. would you spend your time arguing with someone that stupid? :roll:

  10. What’s funny is that Rush was in one of our more progressive health-care states. Very unionized. I’m glad he got good care… and I want everybody to do the same.

    • lulu maude! :D what a nice surprise to see you over here! happy new year to you and your wife.

      rushbo really put his foot in it. he didn’t do his homework, so he didn’t realize he was praising a state where anyone who works more than 20 hours a week is guaranteed health insurance from his employer. his argument will be (i heard the talking points on tv earlier) that it should be up to the states, not the federal government. i guess the rethugs think that people in some states deserve to be sick.
