Dear Costa Rica,

I'm sorry that our battle over health care reform now includes you. You have done nothing to warrant being dragged into this mess. I further apologize that, if we pass health care reform, your newest citizen--in five years-- will be Mr. Rush Limbaugh. (I'm sure he's coming for the eco-tourism.) Although it might be good for your economy, as he is a very wealthy man, and it might be good for your visibility on the international stage, I don't think it's fair for the United States to dump its problems on you in such a manner.

Let me know if you need anything.

Oh, and from what I understand, you have universal health care. Am I right?


p.s. here are some pretty charts from the World Health Organization.
