Stevieslaw: Poor to Die Young
The Senate version of the health care bill, like the version passed by the House, will cut funding for Medicaid in order to provide tax cuts for the affluent. Said McConnell spokesperson, Grime Reper, “This legislation will allow the poor to reunite with their loved ones in heaven much, much sooner. The affluent, to whom heaven is not a guarantee, have a duty to enjoy their lives on earth.”
“In addition, continued Mr. Reper, the poor are an embarrassment. Slums and hungry children, for example, can give tourists a poor impression of the country. And, the one-percent of the one-percent who retain a conscience are terribly bothered by poverty. This bill goes a long way toward ended the problem of the poor in America.”
“It’s a win-win for all of us,” he concluded.
