I'm so glad Limbaugh thinks our health care system is just wonderful since he's never going to have to worry about whether he'll go bankrupt paying for his medical bills.
LIMBAUGH: Again, the treatment I received here was the best that the world has to offer. And I -- I -- based on what happened to me, I don't think there's one thing wrong with the American health care system. It's working just fine, just dandy.
And I got nothing special. I got no treatment other than what anybody else that would have called 911 and been brought in with the same kinds of symptoms. The care was extensive, it was personal, and it was complete, and it was very confidence-inspiring. And I never once I -- once I got here had any fears, because of the manner in which I was treated.
Limbaugh obviously doesn't know the difference between our health care system and our health insurance system, or he just doesn't care and is lying through his teeth like he always does. If everyone could get a job that pays millions of dollars for spreading hatred on the radio just like Rush, all of our problems with the health care system would be solved. Just like magic. We'd all be able to afford to be self-insured.
Laffy over at The Political Carnival found this one. Looks like KITV in Honolulu decided to scrub any mention of Limbaugh saying he was taking medication for back pain.
As she also noted at the end of the press conference Ed Henry asked Limbaugh if he was taking pain killers and he denied it but said he was on Prednisone instead. More on that over at Laffy and Paddy's place.
