Free to be… whatever

Obamacare entered its Terrible Twos last week, an anniversary that passed largely unnoticed except by its opponents; even the community organizer for whom it was named pretty much ignored his baby’s birthday. He left it to Nancy Pelosi, the dimwit who told us she and her pals in Congress had to pass the bill so we could find out what was in it, to observe the anniversary by making yet another one of her brilliant speeches on the subject.

According to Nancy, “This is what our founders had in mind – ever expanding opportunity for people. If you want to be a photographer or a writer or a musician, whatever – an artist, you want to be self-employed, if you want to start a business, if you want to change jobs – you no longer are prohibited from doing that because you can’t have access to health care.”

The Bard of Murdock, no doubt elated at the prospect of being able to quit his day job and devote more time to writing poetry (or whatever) — while getting free health care for himself and his family! — comments:

One needn’t be clever
To be a Whatever.
You simply must sever
Your paying endeavor,
And promise to never
Perform whatsoever
With wrench or by lever
For pay by whomever.

And having selected
A life disconnected,
Your health is protected
By those we’ve elected.
For monies collected
Will soon be directed
To those most affected
By labor neglected.
