Shock! Limbaugh backs health care reform

Radio host Rush Limbaugh endorsed the Democratic health care reform legislation in Congress yesterday, surprising listeners and winning praise from liberals.

“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,” the conservative talker told a caller to his program.

Support for reform in the House and Senate immediately shot up, as members were deluged by constituent phone calls and emails urging they take Limbaugh up on his offer.

A snap poll taken last night by Stan Dardeviasian of Dardeviasian Opinion Research showed that after Limbaugh said he would leave the country, public support for health care reform increased to 80 percent — up from 65 percent last Friday.

“Rush Limbaugh has finally given the American people something they can agree on about health care reform, providing the final push to get it over the top,” said an obviously pleased House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“Thanks to Rush, we now have an overwhelming majority in both houses of Congress, we should have this wrapped up by the end of the day,” she said.

In recognition of Limbaugh’s support, Pelosi said the reconciliation bill would be renamed the Buy The Big Fat Idiot A Ticket On An Omnibus to Costa Rica Act.

  1. What do we have to push through congress to get him to douse himself in kerosene, set himself ablaze and go running through the streets of DC leaving a smear charred fat in his wake?

  2. Barack Obama in addition to the rest of his liberal cronies really should be embarrassed with them selves. Furthermore this is a total outrage. I had been under the belief that as soon as the president takes office he must swear an oath to uphold as well as defend the constitution of the us. Nowhere in the Constitution does it grant the federal government the power to be able to enact and implement laws and regulations like the healthcare reform bill. It’s my opinion that these power mongers are going to be in for a genuine surprise around November. Congratulations relating to the demise of your political careers.
