The Republican Joke Book

Sep 27, 2010

The Republican Plan, “A Pledge to America,” says the following about health care:

“We will enact real medical liability reform.” In other words, after you are harmed by a doctor or a hospital, you won’t get compensation for the damage.

“We will ... allow Americans to purchase health coverage across state lines.” You can buy whatever health care you want–if you can afford it.

“We will ... empower small businesses with greater purchasing power,”–which still won’t be enough to pay for skyrocketing premiums!

“We will ... create new incentives to save for future health needs.” You will soon get to pay every penny of your expensive health care costs.

Pardon us if we sneer, but it’s just more of the same expensive health care system we have now–only more so!
