Attention hungry, fat racist Rush Limbaugh talking about health care on Greta Van Susteren

Some highlights thanks to Newshounds:

Rush on Obama: “I think Obama is largely misunderstood by a lot of people… We’re finding out this guy has a chip on his shoulder. He’s angry at this country. He’s not proud of it… Let’s face it, President Obama’s black. And I think he’s got a chip on his shoulder. I think there are elements of this country he doesn’t like and he never has liked and he’s using the power of the presidency to remake the country.”

Rush on health care costs: “Health care, other than catastrophic… Health care’s got to be priced the same way a hotel room is, or a car is. You want to stay at the Ritz? You pay for it. You want to stay at a Motel 6? You pay for it. We don’t have insurance for hotels. We don’t have insurance for airplane travel. We have it for health care because the government’s been paying it, or (an) insurance company’s been paying it for 50 years – people have now assumed it’s their right to have it because they’re Americans.”

“I think there is a myth in this country about all the people that don’t get medical treatment. I think that’s part of the sales pitch here. I’ve talked to a number of doctors, surgeons, ER, the intensive care patient comes in – they get treated whether they can pay or not and they’re sent a bill if they don’t have insurance.” He added casually, “And they make arrangements with the hospital to pay it off over time and if they don’t, the car repossessers head out and take the car, what have you.”
