The Lyrics

The debate over raising the federal debt ceiling is taking a dark turn. The Administration and Congressional Democrats are flooding the airwaves and press with visions of the elderly being denied Social Security and Medicare benefits if the debt limit is not raised immediately. President Obama himself said that he "couldn't guarantee" that benefit checks would be sent after the August deadline. Christmas In July wonders if "Scare The Old" has replaced "Tax The Rich" as the debt ceiling mantra. ;D

Grandma is the target of debt cutting!
G.O.P. would take her Medicare.
All these claims the press is not rebutting.
The White House wants to give the old a scare.

Hear the President in speeches:
Grandma might not get her check.
What's his reason for the breaches?
John Boehner has his boot on Grandma's neck!
Drive the elderly to crying
By the use of shameless tricks.
Just don't say that this is lying -
Rather say it's just "effective politics"!

Grandma needs an increase in debt ceiling.
Just watch our commercials on T.V.
If you don't agree you have no feeling!
So says our backers at A.A.R.P.

What we need is far more spending,
So we'll drum this in their heads.
'Though no one proposes ending
Grandma's pension or the cutting of her meds.
Our pet projects we are saving -
It's behind all our attacks.
So we cover it by raving
"We're not balancing the budget on old backs"! (Much more tax!)

Grandma's on the hit list of Tea Party!
There is not one single "but" or "if".
Watch our T.V. spot if you're a smarty:
Paul Ryan's throwing Grandma off a cliff!

On this worn-out path we're slogging.
There's a purpose that it serves.
All this flagrant demagoguing
Is planned to put a strain on Grandma's nerves.
So let's stop all this debating.
Don't leave Grandma to her fate!
Let us get back to creating
Our cherished "nanny" - not a "Nanaw" - state!

Grandma's got to help us raise taxation,
So we're there confusing senior brains.
Yet the funds will go to our fixation.
Shut up! We're gonna have our high-speed trains!

Grandma's got to help us stay elected,
So our rhetoric goes on and on.
Even though our plans are misdirected,
It will not bother Grandma - she'll be gone!!
(Spoken) She was a Republican anyway! Win The Future!!

And what did the government plant in their heads? Those visions of grandparents stripped of their meds! ;D

Wonderful. Best song of the day. There is enough tax revenue coming in to pay Social Security and the Armed Forces. Not enough left over for high-speed trains or aid to Pakistan. Well, you know, I don't have enough left over at the end of the month to buy a new Cadillac or send donations to TV evangelists. Guess I'll just buy food and pay the rent and let it go at that.

Fine parody, OMR, with faithful and clever rhyming throughout. Better title might have been "Grandma got pushed over by Paul Ryan" but I rate it 555 anyway.

Patrick said it right - dont grab more money, cut the spending. and if some liberal had a choice between renewing their subscription to "I'm A Wasteful Inconsiderate Liberal And Wanna Stay That Way" or pay the rent, i bet they'd pay the rent. just a wild guess. . .
