Uncle Sam and the Health Care Scam

I can’t really take credit for this, but I ran across it floating around on Facebook. A great hat tip to Bonnie Pharr and her friend Betty Johnson. My apologies for the small liberties I’ve taken with your wonderful writing – call it poetic license 😀

I do not like this Uncle Sam.
I do not like his health care scam.
I do not like when Congress steals.
I do not like their secret deals.

I do not like this speaker Nan.
I do not like this “YES WE CAN.”
I do not like their spending sprees.
Because I know that nothing’s free.

I do not like their smug replies
When I complain about their lies.
I do not like this kind of hope-
I do not like it NOPE NOPE NOPE!

Short, sweet, and fun. I’ll be back later with something a little more serious…

Cheers!

UPDATE: Hat Tip to Jeff – if you’ve read the comments, you’ll notice an earlier mention of our country’s budget woes. In fact, the worst since WWII! Here’s Jeff’s short hand explanation:

To give you some perspective on this story… this is like a family with an income of $23,800 a year having $130,000 in debt. On top of that, they’re spending $38,800 a year, that’s $15,000 in the hole. Oh yeah, you start paying on another $9,400 for health care next year…

    I think I addressed this on my Facebook page… Can’t wait for “financial reform” to happen. They did such a bang-up job with Sarbanes-Oxley. And just like SOX they’re ignoring the real problems. Before SOX, the big 4 auditing firms were asleep at the wheel during Enron, Worldcom, etc. After SOX, the big 4 auditing firms charge between 1.5 and 4.4 million annually to audit your company… Before FINREF, Freddie and Fannie backed toxic loans. After FINREF, everyone but Freddie and Fannie will be monitored…

    I’m not sure putting a bullet in the brain would stop any legislator these days. They appear capable of operating without them.

    @Jeff
    So far, it seems you’re right. Maybe a trip to Oz would help out with some Courage, Heart and Brains.

    Searching for Oz… sounds like the next hot book on liberal policies. Might try pitching that to Mark Levin.
