The Lyrics

Sunday's passage of the Obama health care bill gives us a chance to look back. It seems like only yesterday that the bill was introduced...especially since my dog died yesterday (rim shot!). But I'm serious...I WILL miss a few things about this whole year of love. ;D

Well now they've - finally done it! They've passed the big bill,
And most of the people have long had their fill.
Ms. Nancy Pelosi will now strut and prance
And lead all the Dems in their victory dance.
For all the 'blue dogs" and their case came to naught,
And Stupak and friends with an order were bought.
But still among this acrimonious diss
There are a few things that I'll miss.

Yes I will - miss all the add-ons that O. used to tempt.
If it is so good, why is Congress exempt?
I'll miss all the doctors in wardrobe white coats
And all of the buying of congressmen votes.
I'll miss all those inside backroom shady deals
And all of the billions for greasing the wheels.
I'll miss the White House urging warfare of class
And Grayson - that damned horse's *ss.

Well if you - think that, since health care has finally gone through,
Obama has finished - then I've news for you!
He'll go on his world tour then ram cap and trade.
He's said he won't stop 'til this country's remade!
He'll make us all equal for that is his goal:
That's all of us broke on the government dole!
He'll miss no occasion to give us a speech -
To hector us, lecture, and preach.

Welfare state's now in reach!


Yes, a disaster of a bill...but man alive, what a show! ;D

Now we'll just wait and see. Hope it still works when I can no longer pee..... Nice Job!

What with some states' appeals, the four-year kick-in time, etc., there's going to be no fundamental change to the steaming pile that is U.S. healthcare. I believe. Oh well, it's good parody fodder. How about "The Feckless Bill" for "Don't Mess with Bill"?

I like the parody, but I don't think much will come of this in the next year or so except the next leg - first is deem and pass, then cap and trade and in November, rise and fall of the clowns in your circus.

LOL...don't shoot me. I'm just the band master. ;D

A great epitaph for US health care as most knew and tolerated it. $555 billions for your "cuts" in medic care.
Coincidentally, a Grayson is mentioned in "Tom Dooley" that I parodied on Stupak for today.
@ T1K: House managed to avoid "deem & pass" because of Obama's executive order on abortion funding.
