USS Obamacare in trouble

The USS Obamacare is listing heavily to port. With Captain Obama and Mates Pelosi and Reid glassy-eyed and immobile at the helm, the rudder is jammed full left. Pitching and yawing uncontrollably, she’s colliding with her own wake, boilers overheating and spewing live steam.

Meanwhile, Republican Sen. Sam Brownback, GOP Rep. Kevin Brady and the minority staff of the Joint Economic Committee have provided us a flow chart of the new federal health care system. It’s published on the entire back page of the Aug. 4 edition of the Investors Business Daily, entitled “ObamaCare: A Tangled Knot Around America’s Throat.” It’s worth a trip to the library to locate a copy. Overexposure to the ObamaCare Bill can cause swelling of the brain, insomnia, hypertension, diarrhea, constipation and severe breathing difficulties. Undeterred, Brownback and crew immersed themselves in that 2,500 page document to graphically expose this new ‘health care’ system. Later, they were found lying in the fetal position, face down in the Rose Garden. Their full recovery is expected to coincide with the sinking of the USS Obamacare.
