Like your plan? You can keep it

By From page A6 | November 15, 2013

Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater

Has a plan that’s not a keeper
Should have known, but, unaware,
He bought a plan that was unfair

Now in despair he blames Obama
For his costly health care trauma
His plan won’t pay for indigestion
Caused by greedy gourd ingestion

Obamacare is fraught with flaws
As are so many complex laws
Amended so by those who seek
To make them fallible and weak

So, now it’s time to criticize,
To demagogue and demonize
The law they poisoned with a pill
That sickened, sure, but failed to kill

It’s still beats what its every foe
Would offer us, the status quo
So, Peter, please, try not to mope
Single-payer’s your best hope

Ralph Hanson
