As global warming becomes settled science and ObamaCare successes mount, it's time for the D.C. central planners to fix marriage in American.
The current rash of warm temperatures across the nation is reviving the call for a national carbon credits system. Recently, it was so warm in New York City that the city's new mayor, Bill de Blasio, threatened to remove his clothes before the local media.
Meanwhile, some patients are discovering that the benefits of ObamaCare are so astonishing that they need only go into a hospital to be able to walk out without even having been treated.
Consequently, the reputation of the central government's planning expertise is rising along with temperatures and ObamaCare cure rates. The time is coming for the feds to address a lingering social problem that troubles the country: a divorce rate that, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has been stuck at 53% for the last two years of record (2010-2011).
In addition to the emotional trauma divorce brings to a marriage, and to children associated with it, the average American divorce costs $15,000 (with some estimates as high as $30,000). In 2011, there were 877,000 divorces (and annulments), costing at least $13,155,000,000 - a number equivalent to half the 2012 GDP of Vermont.
Clearly, it's in the nation's best interest to significantly decrease the failure rate of marriages and, thereby, save billions of dollars. And only the federal government is equipped to deal with this problem on a national level.

The problem with this article is that the left will high five and shake their heads in agreement as they read this satirical attempt to educate them... they will even reference it as a success story and introduce legislation making it impossible to divorce without forfeiture of all value accrued of the couple divorcing... ALL to be seized by the fed.
