Limbaugh: Lummox

The rich celebrity tells his audience there is nothing wrong with American healthcare after receiving treatment while on his Hawaiian vacation.

“Limbaugh said at a Honolulu news conference that he was being released from The Queen’s Medical Center, where he was rushed Wednesday during a vacation. Doctors said he did not have a heart attack or heart disease. ‘The pain was real, and they don’t know what caused it,’ Limbaugh said. Asked whether he was taking painkillers, Limbaugh said no. His medical problems have attracted attention in the past. In 2003, he acknowledged an addition to pain killers for severe back pain and took a five-week leave from his radio show to enter rehab. Limbaugh couldn’t resist a few political comments in the short press conference at the hospital. He said he got the best health treatment in the world ‘right here in the United States of America.’ ‘I don’t think there’s one thing wrong with the United States health system,’ Limbaugh said.”
