So This is Health Care (Hope is Over)

(With apologies to John Lennon and thanks to Congress)

(Merry Christmas, Billy.
Merry Christmas, William.)

So this is health care
And what have you done?
Another year wasted
And a new one made of dung.

And so this is health care.
We haven't a prayer.
The near and the dear ones
Don't have single payer.

A very Merry Xmas!
The way I figger,
We've no public option,
Without any trigger.

There's actual health care...
For rich and for strong;
For weak and the poor ones
This bill is so wrong.

And so happy Xmas!
Thanks House and Senate.
The blue and red ones
Thanks for the mandate.

A very Merry Xmas!
But if you dissent,
We'll just raise your taxes
By 2.5 percent.

And so this is health care.
And what a cop out.
Thanks, Grand Old Party.
States can now opt out.

And so happy Xmas!
We hope you had fun.
For old and the young,
The struggle's just begun.

A very Merry Xmas
And a crappy New Year!
It won't be a good one
Without any cheer
Change is over
Before it's begun.
