The cost of insurance was such
Its price I could sadly not touch —
So I gave all of that
To a young bureaucrat
And now it costs three times as much!

    There was a young man of good health
    Who had no interest in wealth
    “The more that I make
    The government takes”
    He said, “so I’ll restrain myself”

    I went Obamacare shopping
    And found my bank account dropping
    The best plan out there
    Is t’ have no healthcare
    It will keep my heart from stopping

    All doctors are forced to treat patients
    Even if they don’t make payments;
    Why not let the MDs
    Treat whoev’r they please;
    Then watch all the health improvements!
