A very clever and humorous commentary on efforts to repeal and replace ObamaCare (author unknown)…
Members of the medical community have weighed in on possible Republican health care reform proposals:
The Allergists were in favor of scratching it, but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.
The Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve.
Meanwhile, Obstetricians felt certain everyone was laboring under a misconception, while the Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted.
Pathologists yelled, “Over my dead body!” while the Pediatricians said, “Oh, grow up!”
The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the Radiologists could see right through it.
Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing and the Internists claimed it would indeed be a bitter pill to swallow.
The Plastic Surgeons opined that this proposal would “put a whole new face on the matter.”
The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were p*ssed off at the whole idea.
Anesthesiologists thought the whole idea was a gas, and those lofty Cardiologists didn’t have the heart to say “No.”
In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the a-holes in Washington.

P.S. There are generally three distinct groups on Capitol Hill involved in the ObamaCare fight.
There are the Democrats, who are essentially irrelevant. There are establishment Republicans who essentially just want to pass “something” without rocking the boat too much. And there are conservatives who essentially want to blow up ObamaCare and start from scratch.
And, of course, affected by the end result will be the citizens and illegal aliens of America.
Let me just suggest that those of us watching the food fight in Washington, DC from the cheap seats not go too meshugganah just yet. Remember, we’re just in the beginning stages of the negotiations. And we have, as our champion and top negotiator, the author of “The Art of the Deal.”
The man’s done pretty darn good on our behalf during his first 50 days in office. Give him a chance. Have faith. It ain’t over ‘til it’s over.

Ballot Bandits Stealing Something Far More Valuable than Petty Cash and Candy Bars
(Brent A. Jones) – Whether it’s a shoplifter stealing from your shelves, or an employee with sticky fingers in your cash drawer, or a trusted bookkeeper draining your bank account, the pain of being violated and betrayed is strong and deep. Why should anyone feel any differently at having their vote stolen?
Minimum Wage: WWTJD (What Would Thomas Jefferson Do?)
(Dennis Hof) – I’m no constitutional scholar, but for some reason I cannot find the authority for Congress to tell a private employer how much he must pay a voluntary worker for his services. Nor can I find the authority to force an employer to provide his employees health insurance, paid time off, or a private room for moms to breast-feed. It’s just not there.
“Stapling” Trash Collection in Las Vegas
(Chuck Muth) – If the government considers it “bad” for two private companies to merge their operations and capture the bulk of the office supply market, how is it “good” for the government to grant monopoly control of a trash collection market?

FAMOUS LAST WORDS
“Government has no business funding art. When politicians decide which ideas deserve a boost, art is debased. When they use your money to shape the culture, they shape it in ways that make culture friendlier to government.” – Columnist John Stossel
