(March 9) -- Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh has thrown down the gauntlet. If the U.S. Congress passes health care reform, Limbaugh will leave the country to receive his medical treatment.

Specifically, Limbaugh told a caller that he envisions traveling to Costa Rica should the government, through a federal program costing upwards of $1 trillion, expand health care coverage to approximately 30 million Americans who are currently uninsured.

Ironically, Costa Rica offers universal heath care to all of its residents.

The caller asked Limbaugh where he would go for health care if Congress were to enact reform.

"I don't know," Limbaugh responded. "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."

Thanks for the link to the politifact page. I hadn't been there in a while so I did some browsing on this page which I take it has your endorsement.



Obama has so far broken 19 promises vs 108 that he kept and 257 that are in the works. He compromised on 34 and 83 are stalled. I think that is unbelievably impressive actually, especially in the Washington of today where the GOP has pretty much vouched to oppose whatever Obama wants.



http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/...



Then I thought just for fun I'd go through the Pants on Fire lies, since you know, lying in Washington started when Obama took control:



This is why were at one time were the greatest nation on earth, that is until Obama took office and the lies began.




Well, here's the outcome of my little tally (I may be off by one or two, but you get the picture): 86 of all the Pants on Fire lies came from the right, whereas 17 of them came from the left (there were 3 that I wasn't sure how to classify and I didn't feel like looking up the sources of those particular lies, feel free to add them to the left if it makes you feel better, it's still a landslide).

Diane, we've already discussed the free speech in Canada thing. Are you really going to go down that road again?

And you never answered my question: when was this free-market utopia of which you speak, when things were so wonderful, all before Obama came into office and allegedly invented political lying? You said that at one time, free markets were allowed to work, making America the greatest nation on earth, before Obama came into office. I want dates. WHEN was this free-market utopia, pre-Obama, when everything was just perfectly grand?

And I get a HUGE kick out of you saying that his ratings are in the tank. He has a 49% approval rating. Bush's ratings hovered in the 30's and 20's for most of his presidency, except after 9/11 when everybody thought he was going to go kick Osama Bin Laden's ass (how'd THAT work out, anyway?). Even Saint Ronald Reagan had ratings in the 30's prior to the economy beginning to recover from the recession.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Vanocouver's nice but too big for my taste. Give the Okanagan Valley a try, I'm in Kelowna, BC. We have a climate similar to Northern California and there's tons of stuff to do if you are outdoorsy like we are.

I haven't read all the comments.

I wonder if healthcare reform somehow interferes with his ability to score mass quantities of oxys? He gets his viagra from people in the dominican republic, right? Apparently he already travels for "healthcare"


Kati, I said if Bush got elected I'd move to Canada ;) I was 16, then I said if he managed to get elected again I'm so out of here, didn't leave. I'm tired of just talking about it as well...

Obama was "heckled" as you say, by the LGBT population who haven't gotten what they expected from him...mostly because he is having a difficult time convincing the right wing in this country that this population ought to have the same rights as everyone else...

I already told you why you should foot the bill, if it wasn't for their cheap labour it would be too expensive to run your country and give the corporations massive profits. You can't afford to pay regular American wages and have "affordable" goods.

Diane, do you actually research the things you say, do you make them up or do you hear someone else say them and repeat it? President Obama's approval rating is at 49%. You can find that anywhere, it's not a made up figure. President Bush's approval rating when he left office was 22%. Jimmy Carter's lowest was 28%. You really should find out what you're talking about. People like you are spreading lies and ruining this country. It's a disgrace. Do your research, quit repeating things that you hear someone else say. Stop this stupid game of telephone. You'd think that Republicans would be worried that they're ruining their country and their party by not facing the truth.

He is using this troop withdraw thing to give himself more time. Now its 16 more months? LOL He knows that if he brings them home the damage to the ME would be tremendous...and with poor public ratings right now.......he does not want that to happen.

Jenny I also am for immigration. LEGAL IMMIGRATION. Its called following the law and standing in line like everyone else did that came over. We have laws in this country for your information and we should follow them. This is about allowing people who are BREAKING THE LAW....to jump in front of people who deserve citizenship that followed the LAW in order to do it.
The law is the law it is to bad that you do not respect that. Do you also break laws in your country?

Our borders should remain closed and if people want to become a citizen they can stand in line. I dont care if we do not get a good sold........a law is a law.

You say I do not have the right to tell another what to do? Heck you do it in Canada. You have laws that prevent free speech for crying out loud. LOL
Why should I as an American taxpayer foot the bill for millions of aliens that get free housing, food and medical care. I live on a border state and see the lines of illegals getting free goods.......it's wrong and people are sick of it.

Bottom line Esther.......the polls show Democrats are in trouble. Boxer cant hold her head above water and Obama had to go do damage control. He was just heckled at a speech by his own people this week. People are beginning to see...just what kind of a person he is. His approval ratings are worse than Jimmy Carters...and his were horrible.
America is right of center....and Obama is far left......What was America thinking in that last election.

"I will end this war, I will bring our troops home!!!!!!! Barack Obama

Where did your family come from Diane? Have they been in America since the dawn of time? They must be if you'd deny "outsiders" entrance.



My family background on my father's side is Mennonite and they came from Germany, Russia and Mexico. My mother's side is Austrian, Englsih, German and a bits of other places. The Europeans had already hijacked my nation from the natives so we were let right in of course.



Who are we to tell other humans where they can and cannot go on their own planet?



Second point: do you want no illegals working here or do you want cheap goods? An affordable budget is not maintainable if you pay the wages Americans are accustomed too. If the person packing your meat is making $20 an hour then your price has just at least doubled. You know anybody who'd pay $10 for a Big Mac?

Collapse.......and now Obama wants to make all illegals citizens, close down the borders and make the American rich pay for everyone who comes here and who doesn't.

Bush crucified over the war...............and Barack has not brought troops home.
He said that we would have five days to look on line to see if we like the bill. Five days to look over 2000 pages of Health care crap...that he has not even read.
Lies Lied and more lies. His new book is coming out did you hear about it.
The Audacity of My Lies :)

You talk about debt.............LMAO Obama does know how to spend, spend, spend.

Pray tell, Diane...when WAS this free-market utopia? Was it during the G.W. Bush years of record debt and a banking system so corrupt that it caused a worldwide financial collapse? 'Cause that doesn't sound all that great to me.

Comical post, Diane. Is that the best you've got? A President who's smart enough to get all the information that he wasn't privy to prior to the election and change his mind? Oh the horror!!

Maybe he should have been like President Bush, when he was warned about Bin Laden and instead of focusing on that he started planning on attacking Iraq. Yeah, I love a leader who won't change his mind and is stubborn. A real winner that one!

Now Rush isn't my favorite person and I know he puts foot in mouth but lets put it in perspective and give him a break. After all he isn't our president.

I think it's funny that Obama did the same thing......I guess we all say things we don't really mean.

Everything Obama has done has been secret and behind closed doors, or shall we say in Air Force One, where he entertained to get the votes needed to pass the Health Care Law.

America did not want the new health care bill. No poll revealed that Americans wanted the radical changes that Obama proposed. But he did it anyway....and the Democratic party will pay come November.

Obama is a liar and people are just finding that out....especially those that voted for him. I know because many now attend the Tea Party meetings where I live.

Here are a few great clips that show Obamas lies, especially about bringing the troops home.



ttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umSpkSzY1TU





This he said we should “take to the bank”......what he really meant was that he was going to get into our BANK accounts one way or another to redistribute wealth, that he was going to force us to purchase something that we do not want to purchase.

So we all know that he did not keep his campaign promises …instead of withdrawing troops he SENDS TROOPS.........



He wanted to save lives remember, he said it was hot over there in the summer months that the troops should come home. Now you tell me how many troops he sent over there might die?

He says he refuses to set goals..........LMAO. All those campaign promises….what were they?

Please tell me what happened? Now if we deport Limbaugh what should we do to Obama?



Lies, lies and more lies..........

“You have a right to your life, a right to your liberty, right to earn a living, a right to keep it, and the responsibility to take care of yourself, but you do not have the right to get something from government because government has nothing so government has to take it from somebody and give it to you....it is a failed policy, a form of socialism and socialism doesn't work and leads to problems. “ Ron Paul

We must allow free markets to work. This is why were at one time were the greatest nation on earth, that is until Obama took office and the lies began.

Please, please, NO Rush! I'll pay him to go somewhere else! The hubby and I go there quite often and want to retire there half-time (his parents are from there and has many family members who still live there). Ew. The ticos are much savvier than he gives them credit. Even though it's a conservative country, they didn't like Bush either!

I'll help him pack is bags too. I was so excited to read this. We can only hope it passes just so we'll be rid of him once and for all. I'm sure the Costa Rican radio listening public will LOVE him! Ha, ha, ha.

Even though he's retracted, I'll still help him pack his bags. Wouldn't want him to forget his Oxycontin.

Not to mention that Costa Rica has universal health care coverage. Perhaps deep down Rush wants to run away and join the socialists.

that's so funny. i thought the same thing if they don't pass it! :) my husband and my best friend always joked about moving to canada if george bush got elected for a second time, then if sarah palin actually got a following, now if they don't pass healthcare reform. i think i'm tired of joking about it, and ready to make it happen.
