"Health Care Plan"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

What does it take to make seasoned song parodists upset? Hmmm... maybe a pro-tax song would be radical enough? Heck, I'll try one just for fun!

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here:
Tax shirts, tax shoes
Tax the hoes the congress' goin' to
Tax fruit, tax flies
And tax spam that promise size-size-size
Let's have taxes, just as many's we can
Cos every rad nation needs a health care plan

Tax scotch an' bling-bling
Tax every faggot wearing crimson string
Tax pink, tax sin
Let IRS crack down on milfy grins
Let's have taxes, for each woman and man
Cos every rad nation needs a health care plan

Tax boats, tax brats
And tax the Wall Street where their wallets' fat
Tax church an' tax death
Tax perps an' garlic on breath
Go search taxes, find as many's you can
Cos every rad nation needs a health care plan

Great write. You must be from the great state of Taxachusetts. Easy, Ribber - funny comment.

Very witty... also oddly disconcerting... ;)

*Please* don't encourage them, Peter -- it's bad enough already ;-( ...

I admit my bias against the Gov running health, in that had they always been doing so, I'd have been dead a long time ago. Free choice among private physicians is why I'm still here, not that everyone agrees that that's a good event.

Fantastic, Peter :-)

I echo all comments above. I will also veto taxes on this parody! Well, as long as you just lower them to 5.55%! But great write, Peter!

Taxing spam...that's actually a brillant idea! Short and sweet, very well done!

Peter - Nice "syntax" on the sin tax line. This parody caught my attention. Lots of good lines and so about where this craziness is going. This health care bill will produce one thing for sure - a new oxymoron called "Health Care". Excellent and most timely of writes.

(SOTM) Being an Australian, I don't understand the hullabaloo about the health care plan, but I can say that the parody was amusing and well-paced (thank God for the OS being one section repeated three times so that I can honestly say that all of the pacing is good despite only knowing one verse from a Weird Al polka). 555
