As Speaker of the House, I�m here to explain why keeping
single-payer off the table is in the best interests of the American sheeple.
The House of Representatives (as the name implies) is the
branch of our government that represents you, the American sheeple. You elected
us to represent your best interests, not the best interests of the health
insurance companies who constantly bribe us with huge sums of money.
Some suggest our refusal to honestly debate single-payer is
crystal clear proof we�ve been bought out by the health insurance industry. The
American sheeple need to know whether or not their representatives are crooks.
We�re not crooks!
For many years we�ve been reluctantly accepting millions
from the health insurance industry. We didn�t want their money. They forced us
to take it. Whenever they held a screaming House member down and stuffed
another million into his wallet, they were always sternly warned, �we�ll take
your money (that you wouldn�t continue to give us unless it got results), but
we must warn you, we represent the American sheeple.�
So it�s merely a very odd coincidence that keeping
single-payer �off the table� guarantees billions of your health care dollars
will be diverted to insurance company profits instead of being spent on your
health care. Of course, keeping single-payer �off the table� also guarantees
hundreds of billions more of your health care dollars will go to unnecessary
administrative costs instead of to your health care.
But we�re not crooks!
So what if single-payer is used by 28 of the world�s top
industrialized nations? Unlike the American sheeple, those stupid foreigners
were easily fooled by specious (single-payer) propaganda spewed out by their
lackey media and their so-called �representatives.�
The American sheeple didn�t riot in the streets when their
representatives inexplicably refused to even consider an obvious, ready
solution to America�s health care crisis. In fact, we�ve heard hardly a peep
from the sheep.
Obviously the American sheeple see nothing wrong with their
representatives completely prohibiting debate on a tested, proven system that
provides significantly superior health care to every citizen for half the cost.
Baaaa . . .
The American sheeple don�t need no stinking single-payer.
Baaaa . . .
Goodnight! [big Pelosi smile] Thanks for coming.
