    Rush Limbaugh threatened, "I don't know. 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."

    Think Progress Limbaugh vows to flee the country if health care passes.

    Um, Costa Rica has universal medical care. :)

    "The Costa Rican healthcare system is rated very highly on an international level, and the country’s citizens enjoy the health and life expectancy equal to that of more developed nations. These accolades come courtesy of strong, universal health insurance and excellent public and private hospitals."

    Costa Rica - Health Care

    That shows how clueless Rush is.

    Again, people just do not bother to listen to the full context of what Rush was saying. He didn't say "move" but leave to go elsewhere to get health care treatment.

    No, I'm Not Moving to Costa Rica

    So you are saying Costa Rica already has what Obama wants?????

    Does he want to spend a couple trillion to move up to #36?

    Again, you failed to grasp my point - Costa Rica has universal health care. Why would he wants to go there? What difference would it make? None. :)

    no not really. It's reasonable. At least Costa Rica doesn't have to worry about national security and monitor the world.

    Are you sure Rush isn't here already?????


    I suspect Rush is a member and posts here as a far left liberal to provide kindling for debate. Soft toss liberal points to be hammered out of the park by conservatives

    Surely, you know that they all have socialized health care? Some are even compulsory.

    I know, just a bad joke. Of course, they don't. They mostly have to worry about drug trafficking, though. My friend lives in Costa Rica and told me what it is like over there. He used to live in Washington state and moved down there. It's dirt cheap to live there as well.

    Costa Rica will probably climb the charts too. By allowing international insurers. You can't even by insurance from other states here.

    They are also held back by their public health care. Their private care is outstanding.
