Congress: Mr. President, may we have $35 billion over the next five years to expand health care for children of working class parents? It will be paid for by taxing cigarettes - a totally voluntary tax. See, Mr. President, what is happening is that health insurance has become so expensive that many companies must keep raising the amount that the employee must pay and now it is becoming too expensive even for families bordering on middle class. Not to mention that nasty little secret of the business world: downsized to today, rehire as part-time tomorrow and do away with all those pesky benefits!
President Bush: No! Too expensive!
Sometime in the next few weeks.......
President Bush: Hey Congress, gimme another $195 billion for Iraq. Don't be poor mouthing me about the national debt. Freedom! Turrist! Liberty! I know it is almost $10 trillion. Family Values! Freedom! I'll just raise the debt limit again, you pussies. Gimme my money right now!
Loki sez: Maybe if we look at it upside down, it'll make sense.
