Rush Is Thinking Of Moving Up When It Comes To Healthcare

Rush Limpass has promised to leave the country if Healthcare Reform passes and move to Costa Rica. That means he will go from 37 (USA) on the list to 36 (Costa Rica) on the WHO list of countries when ranked for Healthcare.
Rank Country
1 France
36 Costa Rica
37 United States of America
Didn't do the whole list in the interest of space.
Here is where we rank in % of GDP spending for Healthcare.
Total Expenditure on Health as % of GDP 2000-2005
Rank Location 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005
1 Marshall Islands 22 19.1 18.4 16.3 13.2 15.4
2 United States of America 13.2 13.9 14.7 15.1 15.2 15.2
66 Costa Rica 6.5 7 7.3 7.3 6.7 7.1

What makes this even more amazing is when you consider the difference in GDPs of the two countries. We have states that have higher GDPs than Costa Rica.
Also, Costa Rica has the socialized medicine that Rush claims to hate, or is this another case of don't do as I do, do as I say.

All I can say is "PLEASE, PLEASE, RUSH, THIS TIME DO AS YOU PROMISE!!!!!

  2. I'll match Grannie's donation for air fare. But only as long as he promises to never come back again.

    If only more of his mentality would consider leaving.

  3. He would hate it there, they are everything that he is against. What in the hell was he thinking of when he said that?

    I'll chip in on his plane fare, to hell.

    Anyway, I put a new post on my projects blog this morning.

  4. It appears that what he meant was that he would go there for medical treatment cuz it's a lot cheaper there. Not move there.

    It seems that a lot of Americans go there for treatment.
