Radio host Rush Limbaugh has suggested that should President Obama's health plan sail through Congress, he will pack up his things and move to Costa Rica. 

Limbaugh has chosen the perfect destination.  The online gambling industry set up shop in this Central American paradise during the mid-1990's.  Since that time operators have gone on to opening their own restaurants and constructing office buildings.  Limbaugh won't have any difficulty broadcasting his radio show out of CR either with all those enormous satellite dishes sitting on the properties of sportsbooks.

NJ Panel to Consider Law on Sports Betting

TRENTON -- Legislation that would allow New Jersey's horse racing tracks and Atlantic City casinos to accept wagers on sporting events will go before an Assembly panel this week.

It would allow gamblers to make bets in person or via telephone or the Internet, though wagers would not be allowed on college games that take place in the Garden State or involve a New Jersey college team, regardless of where the game was played.
