“I am leaving the country. I’ll go to Costa Rica.” -Rush Limbaugh
Earlier this week, conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh stated he would go to Costa Rica for medical treatment if Congress passes proposed reforms to the US healthcare system. Why Costa Rica? Let's take a look at this Government run health system.
Back in the early 2000's, the World Health Organization rated Costa Rica #36 in terms of countries general health. Where was the US...number 37. What is striking is that Costa Rica spends 87 percent less on health care per capita. Oh yeah Mr. Limbaugh, Costa Rica has a government run health system.
Upon Rush moving to Costa Rica and becoming a resident, he would be required to pay into the Government Health Care system. Costa Rica is run by Social Democrats, which should fit right in with Rush's new ideology.
