The opening ceremonies for the Olympics in London Friday were a ploy to promote Obamacare, said talk radio host Rush Limbaugh.
London’s opening ceremonies to the 2012 Olympics Friday were flashy, emotional, powerful and awe-inspiring. Essentially, everything one could hope for to kick off 30th Olympiad.
Included in the ceremony, which documented highlights in British history, was a portion dedicated to England’s National Health System (NHS), a government-run, universal healthcare system which Limbaugh says the British do not even like.
Limbaugh believes the skit was in honor of President Barack Obama.
“The people of Great Britain don’t even like the National Health Service,” Limbaugh said.
“And then it hit me,” Limbaugh continues. “It was actually done on behalf of President [Obama]. They did it for Obama.”
“They actually pulled working nurses out of the hospitals to have them participate in the opening ceremony.”
The NHS portion of the ceremonies featured 600 real nurses and other healthcare workers from the Great Ormand Street Hospital (GOSH) singing and dancing and, at one point, spelling out the words “NHS” and “GOSH” with hospital beds lit up in LEDs.
