How the Reid Stole Healthcare
posted at 10:19 pm on December 23, 2009 by Slublog
Liked their healthcare a lot
But the Reid,
Who lived in Washington,
The Reid hated healthcare, thought the system was smashed
Now please don’t ask why his hate was so unabashed
It could be that he was filled with much gall
It could be, perhaps, that his glasses were too small
But I think the most likely reason of all
May have been that his heart to Obama was enthralled
Whatever the reason,
His worship or glasses
He stood there on Christmas Eve, hating the masses
Staring down from his perch with a sour, nasty frown
At the people with healthcare below in their town
For he knew every person with coverage below
Disagreed with him, and that made them his foe
“They’re happy with their healthcare” he snarled with a sneer
“The polls are against me! Their opinion is clear!”
Then he growled with his thin fingers not able to hold still
“I MUST find a way to pass this Obamacare bill!”
For next year, he knew…
All the Americans would start calling their reps
And would wake up to his plans and rush the Capitol steps
And then! Oh the noise! Oh, the noise, noise, noise!
That’s one thing he hated! The NOISE NOISE NOISE NOISE!
Then the Americans, young and old, would start to protest
And they’d protest, and protest!
They’d PROTEST PROTEST PROTEST PROTEST!
They would start their tea parties and threaten his career
Which was something that filled the Reid with great fear
They’d do something he liked least of all!
Every American, the tall and the small
Would all stand together, and with one voice cry
“You’re not listening to us, and have gone awry!”
And they’d cry and they’d cry
And they’d CRY CRY CRY CRY!
And the more the Reid thought of the people’s point of view
The more the Reid thought, “I know just what to do.”
“I’ll ignore what they think and continue to pursue”
“A takeover of healthcare…we’ll shove it through”
“I have sixty votes and nothing to lose”
Then he got an idea
An awful idea
Got a wonderful, awful idea!
“I know just what to do!” the Reid laughed in his throat
As he used taxpayer money to buy every vote
And he chuckled and said “What a great little trick!”
“I’ll use pork to make this bill pass so quick!”
“All I need is some suckers”
And the Reid looked around
And since this was Washington, such lowlifes abound
So Reid offered some cash
And promised some pork
“Votes are easy to buy, this will pass without fail!”
The Reid made many deals and made the sale
“With so many votes, we will surely prevail!”
He loaded the bill
With plenty of presents
For those willing to sell
Their principles for mere cents
Then the Reid said “Let’s vote!”
On a bill few had read
Affecting the Americans
Whose paychecks would be bled
And what happened then?
Well in America they say
That our taxes went up
And grew three sizes that day!
While at the same time, our healthcare declined
But the Reid didn’t care, he had achieved his gain
The Reid voted to cause us all pain.
