Have a boo at the World Health Organization stats: in particular, the DALE health indicator scale, and the per capita public and private expenditures. http://www.who.int/entity/whr/2000/en/whr00_annex_en.pdf
The USA is number 24 on the DALE health indicator scale. Every nation that is higher on the DALE scale has social health care. Wherever Rush moves to avoid social health care, it will be lower on the DALE scale. A lot lower.
If one were to want to live in one of the two dozen healthiest nations, which one would be the worst in terms of health? The USA.
If one were to want to live in one of the healthiest two dozen nations, which one would be the most costly per capita in terms of both public expenditure and private expenditure? The USA. In fact, the public health care expenditure and the private health care expenditure are both higher in the USA than any other nation in the world. Folks, I don’t know how to break it to you, but your private halth insurance companies and your uninsured individuals are gobbling up your public and private funds without much to show for it.
In other words, if Rush wants a similar level or a better level of health care, for the same or less cost, he will have to move to a nation with social health care.
If he wants to save money (both public and private expenditures) while maintaining or improving health care in the USA, the USA will have to move to social health care.
What it comes down to is that if Rush wishes to get away from social health care, he would have to move to a Central African shit hole, but even then, in those countries the problem isn’t social v. private health care, but rather health care of any sort at anything other than the most basic level, so he would have to provide his own medical facilities, equipment and specialists, or else live in the shit hole but travel to social health care countries for his health care.
In other words, he’s just a blowhard ideologue who pounds home his beliefs regardless of the facts concerning levels of health and health care costs.
