Rush Limbaugh told his audience that if HCR passes, he'll be doing his doctor shopping elsewhere. Preferably somewhere with a booming sex-tourism business.
CALLER: If the health care bill passes, where would you go for health care yourself? And the second part of that is, what would happen to the doctors, do they have to participate in the federal program, or could they opt out of it? [...]
LIMBAUGH: 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.
He wouldn't be the first person to seek medical attention outside the US.
PALIN: We used to hustle over the border for health care we received in Canada. And I think now, isn’t that ironic?
Actually, I'd say it's hypocritical.
Which brings us to right-wing sugar daddy Andrew Breitbart.
"They’re an elitist pestilence," he says of his celebrity targets. [...]
The taping ends with small talk and handshakes. Afterward, Breitbart heads downstairs to visit Greg Gutfeld, who hosts the Fox overnight show Red Eye. Then they meet up with Felix Dennis, the high-flying founder of Maxim magazine, and spend the rest of the evening at a midtown club drinking Cristal.
And that's all he wrote.
