Buffett’s Sister Disagrees with Limbaugh

The sister of billionaire investor Warren Buffett takes issue with radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh’s assertion that the healthcare system in the U.S. is “working just fine.”

Doris Buffett’s foundation contributes to a wide range of charities, including groups that help people who need financial help because of illness, the Omaha World-Herald reported.

The financial difficulties resulting from illness “are just unbelievable, that people did nothing to instigate themselves,” she told an interviewer from Davidson College in North Carolina.

“They just have a terrible time, that’s all there is to it. They can’t get the help, despite what Rush Limbaugh said the other day.”

Limbaugh, who opposes the healthcare reform plan supported by Democrats, was hospitalized in Hawaii on Dec. 30 after suffering chest pains. At a Jan. 1 press conference in Hawaii, he said: “The treatment I received here was the best that the world has to offer. Based on what happened here to me, I don’t think there’s one thing wrong with the American healthcare system. It is working just fine.”

Doris Buffett declared: “He said he got wonderful care, there’s nothing wrong with the medical system in the United States. Well, I beg to differ.”
