I have to hand it to Rush Limbaugh for not being able to resist editorializing, even at a press conference about his current hospitalization in Hawaii for chest pains.
But as usual, his gaping ignorance shines through in the following statement…
Limbaugh couldn't resist a few political comments during his short news conference at the Honolulu hospital.
One appeared to be aimed at health care reform, when 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 American health care system," Limbaugh said. "I got no special treatment other than what anybody else that would have called 911 and had been brought in with the same kinds of symptoms."
…when Rush neglects to note that many Americans--including myself—cannot afford nor have access to the health coverage he does that enabled him to receive treatment, and not worry later about perhaps having to sell one’s house to cover the bills.
Way to go, dickhead. Even in the midst of a personal health scare, you still don’t get it.
