D.C. Doppelgangers Set to Fund O’Care

When we sent a Republican House to Washington in 2010, we assumed they would do the right thing.  Among the rightest of the things we expected them to do was set to work repealing Obamacare.  The first step, they said, would be to  defund it, until we could get a Conservative majority in the Senate in 2012.

Okay, we said.  Do it.  Defund Obamacare.  At least it’s a start.

However, Tea Party Patriots (God bless them for keeping us informed) just sent out an e-mail.  The House of Representatives plans to pass, with bipartisan support, a six-month budget that includes full funding for the Affordable Care Act.  The vote is tomorrow.

Were our candidates wearing ear plugs when we told them their first job was to trash Obamacare?  Couldn’t they see all our home-made, anti-Obamacare signs through their expensive Ray-Ban sunglasses?  Were their operatives standing behind them chanting some hypnotic mantra that they will support Obamacare, they will support Obamacare, they will support Obamacare?  Or did they put their good twins up on the podiums across America, promising repeal Obamacare, while their evil twins went to Congress, sneering at the suckers who fell for their guile?

Well, they’re elected now and they want to know what we’re going to do about it.  Hold a rally?  Make more home-made signs?  Send them an e-mail that their secretary will delete?  Who do we think we are?  The American people?  Don’t make them laugh; their tans might crack.

They’re in the seat of power.  The captains of government and industry.  We didn’t really believe we could take them on.   Come back and talk to them when you have a $2 billion check in your hand. Then maybe they’ll listen.

Oh there are a few good scouts like Michelle Bachmann and Scott Garrett.  Too bad we can’t clone them.  We’ve seen what good it did voting Republican.

Whether we’re dealing with Evil Twins or not, Tea Party Patriots ask that everyone e-mail or call their representative and remind them of where their loyalties lie and to whom they are ultimately accountable.  Who needs enemies when we’ve Congress?  What was your price, you turncoats?  Your own private dacha?  Free junkets to Honolulu?

In God, we trust.  In government…not so much.
