Limbaugh: “I had excellent care; there’s nothing wrong.”

Rush Limbaugh is notorious for his wimpiness in regard to pain resulting in a Vicodin dependancy and so-called “doctor shopping.” Then there’s his hearing loss, probably due to the Vicodin, and subsequent cochlear implant surgery.

Now, speaking as if he’s the picture of health, Limbaugh gives a press conference on his recent chest pains and visit to the ER:

“Nothing wrong?”  Now, I’m no advocate of a government takeover, but it is stupid to say there’s “nothing wrong” with the American health care system. 

Even Glenn Beck said his hospital stay changed his views on this issue somewhat.

Rather than illustrating “nothing wrong,” Limbaugh’s case only illustrates part of what is wrong: he is a famous multimillionaire, and he got excellent care because he’s a famous multimillionaire.  Would some poor schlob with Medicaid or no insuraance at all get the same level of care?

Also, Rush, an angiogram isn’t a treatment; it’s a test.

In other news, the very people who want to take over our health care and deny they want to do it to control our lives were, during this crisis, expressing hope for Limbaugh’s death.

As someone put it on Facebook, it’s horrible for Limbaugh to express hope that Obama fails, but it’s OK for Limbaugh’s opponents to hope he dies.

Liberals are such nice people.

  1. Giving everyone health care is one thing — giving everyone the “same level of care” (whatever that means) is quite another. There is no way to guarantee that every single person in this country has access to the equivalent of the Mayo Clinic.

    But if we try to equalize the quality of care, then everyone’s care will be eroded.

    Everyone needs food to live. Is it fair that one family eats standing rib roast once a month, while other families have mac and cheese three nights a week?

    The minimum does not have to equal the maximum to be humane.

    • A valid point, and I totally agree with you. However, the question is whether anyone, in a Christian society, has the right to the “maximum.” Those who use money to get the “maximum” are taking resources away from others.
