If there was ever a time to get bold about passing health care reform the time is now! Forget bipartisanship and go for broke. You will be rewarded. Not just with the prospect of providing all Americans, regardless of circumstances, with access to affordable health care, but we will finally be rid of the little voice that is conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh.
He is vowing to flee the country if the reform bill is passed.
Responding to a caller who asked him where he would go for health care if Congress enacts reform, Limbaugh replied,
"I don't know. 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."
Do you think he knows that Costa Rica has universal health care? Not the point-stay focused, Democrats, and let's get this passed.
