In the growing shadow of the IRS "War on Conservatives" scandal, the Obama administration has just confirmed our worst nightmares by proudly announcing that there really will be a political component to your IRS-administered healthcare.
Specifically, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen "Shakedown Money" Sibelius says that Obamacare will be putting a "special focus on the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community because for too long (they) were pushed out of the way." Which means that if you're not a member of that community, then it's time that you were pushed out of the way for awhile.
Secretary Sibelius says that the LGBT community will be getting some benefits specific to their needs, including help with smoking - which LGBT folks apparently do more of than straight folks (although we don't know if that's only after sex).
Interestingly, this isn't the first time smoking has been mentioned with regard to Obamacare recently - because in some cases smokers can be charged up to 50% more for their health insurance under the new rules. Unless, we suppose, those smokers argue that they were "born that way" rather than making the choice to light up.
Frankly, as much as Hope n' Change doesn't like the idea of sexual identity being used to assign favored or unfavored status in healthcare, we're not overly worried about it. After all, everyone's healthcare is going down the toilet as soon as Obamacare is fully implemented.
But just to keep the odds on our side, in the event of a heart attack we plan to be wearing women's underwear and a medical alert bracelet which says "trapped in a man's body."
BONUS: WANT TO VOTE AGAINST OBAMA RIGHT NOW?!
Of course you do! And one way to do it is by following this link to cast your vote for "The Coolest SOB in the Conservative Blogosphere!" You'll find my name, Stilton Jarlsberg, about 10 spaces from the bottom - and scads of other snark-filled conservative SOBs who are actively mocking the worst administration in history.
You can vote for as many SOBs as you want, but voting ends Saturday June 8th. The first place winner will be sent to Guantanamo Bay with a black bag over his or her head, and the runner-ups will be audited within an inch of their lives until the sun is a cold, dark ember.
Honestly, I can't make any claims about being "cool," but I'd like to think that there are actual files in Washington DC that prove I'm an SOB. Your vote will be appreciated!
