Every Who in America
But a faction of Republicans
Think that isn’t fair.
That faction hates Obama, his whole administration
They’ll be happy with nothing but psychic castration
of the Democratic party and all that they’ve worked for:
Especially entitlements that are aimed at the poor.
But healthcare, “Oh this comprehensive bill
That is the one thing we really must kill.
Even though it’s been watered down,
Negotiated and shredded,
And made into the law of the land where it’s headed!
No, we must stop it! And right in its tracks!
We’ll come up with a plan that’s light on the facts.
Fervent obstruction – that’s what we do!
Blatant destruction of all that is good.
And when it’s all over,
When the smoke clears,
When the Whos realize we’ve preyed on their fears,
We’ll make something up
And put it on Fox news.
We’ll all get behind Bachman and Cruz.”
It might be that Boehner’s head isn’t screwed on quite right.
Some say that his tan was sprayed on too bright
But I think that the most likely reason of all
May have been that his balls were two sizes too small.
But whatever the reason – his balls or his tan,
Boehner sat on the Hill without a plan.
And in came the Tea Party with crazy beliefs
To cave to the rich and to give no relief
To the people out there who got them elected
Who saw in Obama not Christ resurrected
But a man with dark skin who was their greatest threat
The biggest socialist that they’d ever met.
Whose father was Kenyan and who hid his college papers.
It was enough to give old Southern women the vapors.
But the worst part of all wasn’t the unprovable facts,
But the fact that this left-leaning commie was black.
That’s the one thing they hated – the blacks blacks blacks blacks.
They hated that more than corporate tax.
His legacy was healthcare, so they vowed to defeat it.
Personal responsibility was their idea! They felt so cheated.
So instead of supporting it as they had in the past
They vowed to kill it and with it, the middle class.
“Repeal it again!” they cried, (forty-two times)
And they took up their time, not preventing crimes,
By legislating the laws that focus on safety
Like restrictions on guns – no that would be crazy.
They took over the House and made it their business
To obstruct and destruct and to ask no forgiveness.
They were deaf to the voices of people who need it
Welfare recipients could all just go beat it.
No matter that the people, like Cindy Lou Who,
A girl without money, just like me and you.
Whose mother is sick and they aren’t insured.
Because if you’re poor in the US there isn’t a cure.
And Cindy Lou has been home all semester
Her Head Start program was lost in sequester.
Her mother can’t work because they can’t afford a sitter.
And the steady decline put her health in the shitter.
She always worked, paid her taxes, did her fair share,
And now, when she needs it, they wanna defund Obamacare?
“You have the right to pursue happiness –
Whatever that means.
But healthcare is not part of the American dream.”
But the law was held up by the highest court in the land,
And Ted Cruz, well he got up to take a stand,
A filibuster to defund it – and he was sober.
But it was all set to start in October.
His idea didn’t work, the wheels were in motion,
But Cruz is playing a long game, he wants his promotion.
They would take the whole government and shut it right down!
Boehner’s like, “This isn’t a game, I’m not fucking around.”
But it’s too little too late, it was out of his hands.
He was backed into a corner and gave into demands.
And Obamacare came,
And in all the confusion,
The Whos failed to see it was just a delusion
To keep them from seeing the hostile takeover
By those who wanted to give a makeover
To that old paper that started it all
That said that we should be governed for all
And not a small faction
That represents one percent
(A very small fraction)
And quiets dissent.
But when a small group plots against us
That’s called sedition.
Like a cancer, it’s a preexisting condition.
The tyrannical forces didn’t come from the left.
It was gotten in plain sight, it was a blatant theft.
It came without guns, it came without tanks,
It started when they deregulated the banks.
We opened the door for the Tea Party bigots
And now the current’s too strong to turn off the spigots.
We need is to issue some slips that are pink
To start over in Congress before the ship we’re on sinks.
What we need is what they call a market correction –
We need to remember in the midterm election.
