Today in an historic ceremony a victorious President Barrack Obama signed the first major overhaul bill to affect health care in the United States in almost a century. The wide reaching provisions of this bill, estimated to cost some 938 Billion dollars over the next 10 years, will not be completed until 2014 when the most controversial provisions, especially the one concerning fines for capable Americans who fail to obtain health insurance takes effect.
Not everyone was as jubilant as the President and his hard working administration, within minutes of the signing at least 13 states filed a combined Federal Lawsuit questioning the constitutionality of the bill, with several more States considering either joining in or filing separately. As you might expect, 12 of the 13 State’s Attorney Generals are Republican, the ringleader being Florida AG Bill McCollum, the lone Democrat being Buddy Caldwell from Louisiana.
The bill was passed without any GOP support, not a single vote, and these lawsuits are just the latest tactic by the outnumbered Republicans to stop, stall, and stymie the bill, regardless of the wishes of the majority of Americans. The unofficial spokesman of the GOP, Rush Limbaugh threatened to “seek medical care in Costa Rica” if the bill passed, of course a fat drug addicted racist liar can scarcely be expected to keep his “word”; we can only wonder if he knew Costa Rica has socialized medicine, like most of the rest of the civilized world.
Speaking of Racists like Limbaugh, and the majority of President Obama’s most outspoken critics and enemies, there is a certain word that they would love to use in their pathetic attacks; a certain word that only political correctness and fear keeps them from using. Rush comes the closest with his openly racist remarks like “halfrican American” and his theme song “Barrack the Magic Negro”, well boys (and I do mean BOYS) I’m going to make it easy for you; I’ll get you started, and you can take it from here and finish it… READY?!
(sung to the tune of “Texas has a Whorehouse in it”)
“THE WHITEHOUSE HAS A XXXXXXX LIVIN’ IN IT!”
(Chorus) “LORD HAVE MERCY ON OUR SOULS!”
“YES I SAID THE WHITEHOUSE HAS A XXXXXXX LIVIN’ IN IT!”
“SO I’LL EXPOSE THE FACTS SO PLAIN TO SEE!”
“HE’S NOT THE SAME AS YOU AND ME!”
(Chorus) “LORD HAVE MERCY ON HIS SOUL!”
So there you go Rush, and you too haters, the hard parts done; the concept and the majority of the lyrics. Even you should be able to finish the rest, and the melody is available from any Karaoke outlet. So rally around the flag boys, what do you call it – the Stars and Bars?! You know the funny part? You’ll be the first to demand affordable or free health care when you burn yourself on a cross somewhere!
(By the way, the XXXXXXX word I thought of is “LIBERAL”… what word are YOU thinking of?!)
