This Health Care Plan Must Die!

Posted: Updated:

The Billionaires are back, this time as the Billionaires for Wealthcare (http://www.billionairesforwealthcare.com/), representing all the noble Health Insurance Companies who are trying to fight back Obama's jackbooted attempts to regulate us into providing better health care for Americans, and heaven forfend, even cutting us out of as juicy a share of the health care budget as we're accustomed to. This will not stand!

This Healthcare Plan Must Die
(to the tune of "Battle Hymn Of The Republic")

Rejoice and let us glory in the profits that we gain
By rationing the remedies for suffering and pain.
We will not let you regulate our budgetary drain.
This health care plan must die!

Chorus: See us brimming with elation
As our healthc are corporation
Bankrupts the entire nation.
This health care plan must die!

We bought a bunch of senators and congresspeople too.
They serve our corporate interests and we tell them what to do.
This gravy train will stop the day a healthcare bill gets through.
This healthcare plan must die!

Chorus: See us brimming with elation (etc.)

Our PR team is crackerjack. We're framing the debate!
We're spreading lots of lies and we're unleashing lots of hate.
We'll drive a stake into the bill the day it leaves the gate.
This health care plan must die!

Chorus: See us brimming with elation (etc.)

A decent public option is an option we won't bear.
And Medicare for Everyone would kill our market share.
We'll never win the game if all the rules are just and fair.
This healthcare plan must die!

Chorus: See us brimming with elation (etc.)

In every other wealthy nation healthcare is a right.
But not here in America, no not without a fight!
We're fighting for the right to monstrous profits day and night.
This healthcare plan must die!

Chorus: See us brimming with elation (etc.)
