Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh is doing fine after a scare last week that sent him rushing to the hospital with severe chest pains. After extensive testing, doctors were unable to find anything wrong with Limbaugh and he has now been released to rest and recuperate. Limbaugh plans to return to the air within a week at the most.
Not only is Limbaugh reportedly not going to keel over and die any time soon, he’s managed to capitalize on his heart attack scare by using the experience to slam Democratic healthcare reform plans.
“Based on what happened to me here,” Rush Limbaugh told reporters about his hospital visit, “I don’t think there is one thing wrong with the American healthcare system. It is working just fine.”
We recommend that if Rush Limbaugh really wants to get a taste of true American healthcare, that he grow a Unabomber beard and drive to the Bronx or rural Alabama and ‘relive’ his chest pain experience. Then call 911 and when they show up (if they show up), give them a fake name and tell them you have no insurance or ID.
We wonder if they’ll clear and lock down a whole wing in one of the best hospitals in the country for you then? Come on, we dare you to find out!
