- [Announcer] It's time for another episode of
- [Audience] Who Gets the Money?
- Okay, welcome to Who Gets the Money,
the game show that takes the Republican tax plan
and asks, hey wait a second,
Who Gets the Money?
Okay, enough dickin' around,
let's meet our contestants.
First up, they've quietly funded the campaign
of just about every Republican in Congress,
they own this studio,
and I think they're behind me right now!
Ladies and gentlemen, the Koch brothers!
Get out of here guys, you're making me nervous.
Now let me ask you a question,
am I pronouncing that correctly?
Is it Coke, or Coach?
Okay, either way.
And our next contestant is
some guy named Phil.
- Yeah, let's go baby.
- Hello Phil.
Errrr, I guess, tell us about yourself?
- Sure thing.
I served two tours in Afghanistan,
and after leaving the military
I joined the Fire Department in Akron, Ohio.
- And I, er, lost a good friend.
- Oh, hooo.
that was a boring story.
- My bad, host.
- (chuckles) Okay!
Let's play the game!
Koch brothers, you know the rules
because you make the rules.
You push the button, the wheel spins,
blah bitty blah,
and when the wheel stops, we see
- [With Audience] Who Gets the Money!
- Okay, Koch brothers, you go first
because unlike some people,
you've earned it.
- Well actually I-
- Phil, no one gives a fuck.
Let's spin the wheel!
Top marginal tax rates,
that sounds fancy because it is.
Now Charles and David, you're worth $82 billion.
But you need more!
And under this Republican plan,
you're gonna earn an additional
$33 million a year.
That's like owning the lottery,
and winning the lottery.
- Wait wait wait wait a second, wait a second.
- Phil, shut up, there's confetti everywhere.
- I know, but couldn't that money
be used to help the opioid crisis?
- Well Phil, you bring up a good point.
To which I say:
If people want to get addicted to opioids,
that's their business!
This is America!
America is about Freedom!
And walls, and lockin' her up!
Lock her up, Phil, lock her up!
Koch brothers, wassup?
Hey, what do you guys say we get some prostitutes
and pee on them?
- [Announcer] This has been Who Gets the Money,
a Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump production.
I'm Johnny Gameshow,
go fuck yourself.
