It was March 8, 2010 when Rush Limbaugh declared that if the Affordable Care Act were passed and implemented in another five years, he would move to Costa Rica. Apparently he’s too ignorant to know that Costa Rica has universal health care too. He said:
“My guess in even in Canada and even in the UK, doctors have opted out. And once they’ve opted, they can’t see anybody Medicare, Medicaid, or what will become the exchanges. They have to have a clientele of private patients that will pay them a retainer and it’ll be a very small practice. I don’t know if that’s been outlawed in the Senate bill. 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.”
And yet he’s still here. It was April, 2012 when Ted Nugent was stumping for Mitt Romney and said that if Obama was reelected, within one year he would be dead or in jail:
“If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year. Why are you laughing? Do you think that’s funny? That’s not funny at all. I’m serious as a heart attack.”
And here’s video of that:
And yet he is neither dead or in jail. Gee, it’s almost as if these guys are just lying assholes or something.
