the Month Before Christmas
or Account of the Socialization of Medicine in the U.S. of A.
by
putupon

'Twas a month before Christmas, in the Senate and House
RepublicRATs were scheming, led by the White House;
“Conservatism?” they asked, “Geezers’ votes aren’t there,
Santa Bush has the answer; we’ll steal HillaryCare®!”

As a taxpayer I had nestled all snug in my bed,
Republicans ruled, I had nothing to dread;
Conservatives in charge. Oh, how I did gloat;
I put them in office, with my money and vote.

But in the press there now arouse such a clatter,
I read in the news, “Government’s now much fatter“!
“Compassionate Conservatism”, it hit me with a flash,
is no more than socialism, Dubya’s taking my cash!

Free pills for those, with hair of blue and white as snow
Though they are wealthier than all the rest, you know.
So there before my teary eyes did appear,
A bogus conservative, and a Congress with a sneer,

RINOs and Dubya, grabbed the money so quick,
I am tempted to call each and every one a prick.
To steal income as rapidly as an eagle they came;
Escaping with the loot, W called them by name;

“Now, Cantor! now, Allen!, now, Haskert, and Frist!
With us in charge, conservatives can no longer exist!
The dummies are stupid, for our bullshit they did fall!
Their trust and their money, we can take it all!”

Conservatism in Congress, away did the dream fly,
Conservatives in the courts, just pie in the sky.
Pandering pols is all we have, there is nothing new,
We’ll soon be just like Canada, sad but true.

As bad as this is. It could have been worse. All you need to do is remember back to 1992 with the Family Medical Leave Act. Bush the First would not sign that bill, I believe he vetoed it the first time and that provided the Democrats with an opening a campaign issue and a reason to vote for them. We can not afford to make that mistake again. Although it is not talked about Medical Savings Accounts are in this bill and that is the solution to our Medicare problem if you believe that the Republicans are capable of taking incremental ism out of the Democrat play book and using it.
