“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.”
Since the House of Representatives passed the historic healthcare reform bill Sunday night, myriad websites have appeared offering well wishes and aid to Limbaugh as he prepares for this journey.
It appears that Limbaugh is now trying to backtrack on his pledge. Perhaps he just learned that Costa Rica also has a socialized medical safety net. In his Monday radio show, Limbaugh said he does not wish to move to Costa Rica, only to receive his healthcare there. However, after being hospitalized in Hawaii last December, Limbaugh publicly stated his gratitude for receiving “the best healthcare the world has to offer and that [it] is right here in the United States in America.”
Is El Rushbo conflicted? Possibly. Chicken? Perhaps.
Either way, a promise is a promise. So from all of us at NJDC, safe travels, Rush! Please send us a postcard!
