U.S. President Barack Obama hosted a summit at the Whitehouse last week, trying to get Congress to pass his new, latest healthcare package, now with added lemon, and fortified with Vitamin D and aloe vera. Before he began the discussion in front of a room full of powerful foes, as well as some Republicans, he began with a speech. Depending on who you are, the speech sounded quite different. For example, if you were an ordinary American, this is what President Obama’s speech sounded like;
“Our projections indicate health insurance premiums will rise substantially and businesses are having to make decisions about dropping health care coverage for their employees. Also, the escalating costs of medical care in this country are aggravating a deepening federal deficit.”
If you were a Republican, this is what President Obama’s speech sounded like;
“Universal Medicare is just the beginning of my plan to throw out the corrupt system that is capitalism with a new system of government where the proletariat will overthrow the bourgeoisie, and where the motto for all Comrades will be; ‘From each according to their ability to each according to their needs’”.
And if you were a Democrat, this is what President Obama’s speech sounded like;
“Blah, blah blah, blah blah, blah blah blah blah.”
