Carol of the Beltway

Click Cartoon for Larger Size
Surprising absolutely no one, Harry Reid browbeat, bullied, and bribed Senate Democrats to vote 60-39 in favor of his healthcare bill, early on Christmas Eve.

Assuming full passage by the House, an average family we'll call the "Crachits" will be affected in the following ways:

1) Father Bob Cratchit will have to give up his one lump of coal for the fire at work, owing to the negative health impact of greenhouse gasses.

2) Mrs Cratchit will be strongly encouraged to get federally-funded abortions rather than bring more babies into the world.

3) Lacking health insurance, the family will have to pay new federal fines which will force the children into workhouses.

4) Son Tiny Tim will have his foot chopped off by a greedy diabetes doctor who just can't seem to break the habits he developed before Obama was president.

God bless us, every one.

You gotta love the 1 am, Saturday and now Christmas Eve votes for legislation most of us don't want. I guess we have Obama to thank for the era of transparency in government.

Nakedliberty- To be entirely fair, I can't remember another time when the Democrats showed this much transparency about their real goals and their contempt of the American people.

Why you gotta ruin my all time favorite Christmas story...haha.

I do wish the ghosts would pay a visit to the White House this year.

Suzy- actually we're not the ones ruining that Christmas story, it's the Democrats. And sadly, if the ghosts DO pay a visit to the Whitehouse this year, it won't do any good... Ebenezer Obama is in Hawaii.

You got a point Stilton. They don't hide the agenda, they just vote on it after hours. Maybe it's the repressed guilt over what they know they are doing to us.
