Rush Limbaugh's Press Conference Before Leaving Hospital

Posted January 1, 2010

I actually haven't bothered to listen to it myself. Apparently he points out that America has the best health care in the world. This is, I beleive, true, but of course the naysayers are pointing out that Rush is very wealthy so he can afford to pay for the best health care, and so his case proves nothing.

However, as Rush points out, anyone can get healthcare. If you don't have insurance, you are simply billed on a payment plan. Which, granted, may take you a lifetime to pay. Which is why everyone should buy insurance, and on that point I really dont understand why Rush and other conservatives are up in arms about *that particular portion* of the healthcare bill.

No need to put them in jail. Simply deny them any medical help. If they can't afford to buy medical coverage for themselves - they can't afford to have children, either. But how many poor people continue to have children, content in the knowledge that the government will support them? (Yes, I know that's a complex issue. Many people have children they can't afford because they are trapped in a religion that prohibits them from practicing birth control, no matter into what hell their babies will be born.)
