(Newser) – Having seen the health care system up close, Rush Limbaugh says it's fine. "It was confidence-inspiring," he said of the hospital stay that started Wednesday when he suffered chest pains while vacationing in Hawaii. "They found absolutely nothing wrong," the talk-radio lightning rod said at the Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu, which discharged him today. "No arterial disease, no coronary disease whatsoever."

Added Limbaugh, 58: "The pain was real, and they don't know what caused it." Asked whether he's taking painkillers, he said he isn't.
